Does this sound like AS to you or something different?

I have been thinking about my Mum quite a bit lately and what she was like. I can't ask her anything because she died in 1996 from MND/ALS.
So I want to tell you a few things that stand out in my memory and tell me if she could possibly have had Asperger's.
..She always cooked the same thing every night on certain days (routine??)
..She was talented in writing and would lose herself in it and even went to a writing seminar on a birthday of mine.
..My Mum told me that she started smoking to keep men away yet she had never been abused and was not a lesbian.
..At times I felt she didn't care yet she always gave me a hug when I wanted one and told me that she loved me.
..She didn't seem that social unless it was church related or to do with her writing.
..She was very fixed in right/wrong, like very rules orientated.

What do you think? You know more about it than me.

I don't think it's enough to tell, some traits could mean ASD, others can be due to anything else. Personality traits, for instance.

That seems like AS to me, but I'd also like to see other opinions.

I have just put what I can remember. ALOT has happened since then and I have never thought about it untill very recently.

I'd have to meet her in person.

Mind digging her up and arranging an appointment?

:lol:
That would be tricky, she wasn't buried. Am trying to look for school reports to see how she was in class.
I am pretty sure there is gentic link with ASD and my nephew on my Mum's side has AS.

All the things you describe sound like things any person could do, AS or NT. Now if you have aspergers and your father doesn't and members of your mom's family do... that would be a big clue.
