hi. my name is Kestrelle and I'm obviously new here. I was hesitant in joining wrongplanet for some reason I don't know, but I'm glad I did even though I'm not sure if i really have AS.

Hi quKestIonE welcome to the "right" planet :wink:

Its true those of us on the autism spectrum or as derverse and different from those not on the Autism spectrum... the beginning of a new journey is not always easy, but as I did remember there ia a wonderful aspie community, my now extended family :D

Some of the information may help a little:

Most of us are self diagnosed at first and then its finding a professional who understands and can diagnose us. So before being diagnosed, write down as much information as you can will really help, back to when you were a child. As we get older we learn to change and adapt, does not mean we do not still have those differences, but often have to keep or learn to conceal them..

Making Sense:
http://asplanet.info/index.php?option=c ... Itemid=129
Raising Awareness of Aspergers Syndrome:
http://asplanet.info/index.php?option=c ... Itemid=67..

This lists may help for a start:
My list of Characteristics of Children to Adolescences AS symptoms
http://asplanet.info/forum/index.php?topic=161.0
Great test to do:
The Official Aspergers AQ TEST - Could you be on the spectrum !
http://asplanet.info/forum/index.php?topic=77.0
and others things ton read which may help:
AS Symtoms (Full Official Criteria):
http://asplanet.info/index.php?option=c ... &Itemid=63
ASNZ - ASD Diagnosis, tests, Being an Autistics Friend....
http://asplanet.info/index.php?option=c ... Itemid=132

Please feel free to contact me any time as I know only too well when first diagnosed even if you feel you know, it can be a bit of a shock, its a little like losing who you thought you were and having to find the real you all over again. It can seem quite a lonely journey at first, but happy to answer and be here for you.

So if you do get diagnosed be easy on yourself for awhile, as often with acceptance comes a grieving period - but what follows is a new wonderful understanding, it really was at this point a revelation to me as every think made sense all at once.

It really is the not knowing or understanding that does cause us so much unnecessary pain.
We do not need to be diagnosed be it helps to understand and know.
