      It's been a pleasure reading these posts. Thanks for sharing Peter. It seems I might have a few Asperger qualities. Yes, I called them qualities.

      Your very welcome! if your enjoying the content and/or you have learned something new about myself and/or AS in general then its doing its job. ;-)

      Yes its both good and bad living with AS, sometimes its a drag like i just wish i didn't over possess things and get on with life like so many people can do... How they can just choose something or an action on the fly without fully understanding its possible consequences is beyond me.

      But more often than not, as long as i am left to my own devices to do my own thing my way.... I'm happy being who i am.
      Most problems in my life come from 'NTs' not understanding anything outside their own world with their (IMO) mostly repetitive/backwards thinking possess patterns sounding off at me about what I should be doing with my life while not understanding most of what I just said to them.... They just come across as having no clue about my world and its very tiring for me pretending to care what they think at all sometimes ... But hey that's my cross I suppose.

      I'm trying not to come across as spewing 'hate' in this thread but I suppose it can look that way, but really as I'm stuck living in their world I'm just passing along the relevant information about seeing that world from my point off view, however sadly to most NT's the truth often hurts and apparently I have difficulties seeing/understanding how telling the truth is a bad thing... So i try to keep comments to myself and focus on simple pics and the odd video here and there.

      Anyhoo it is what it is and I truly thank you for reading it.

      Peace to you and yours.

      Yes every time I sit in the canteen at work, every time I sit on a bus/train/any public transport. In fact, everywhere I go that's not in my car. I'll never understand why people tend to like to sit near each other. But hey, its a NT world after all.

      So that time came, My little one was/is showing more and more signs that she may be an Aspie like her old man.
      The school and daycare were both suggesting we have her tested as they cant really do much to help with out a diagnosis from a expert in the field... And I agree. It was far to late for me before I knew anything about AS, I learned my own way of coping with it without knowing or understanding anything was "wrong" heck look at me now, always seeking to be on my own with no friends... that's not the life I want for my little one.


      SO only one thing left for us to do was to get her tested... And that's what we did. I cant say we were surprised to read that just like we suspected, our little one has been diagnosed with Aspergers... and a few more things to boot.. ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder) She will probably grow out of ODD by age 8 or so says the expert says... lets hope so as her almost daily defiance to anything we say is getting harder to deal with.

      So what does this all mean for us? Well we can now start to give her the help she needs and get support from the schools too so that we can help integrate her into living with NT's as best she can.


      More to follow on this.

      I'm kinda stunned and don't know very well what to say... At least it is confirmed and i am sure Seryn and you two get the all the guidance & help you can.


      Don't talk about things you might want to do, nor postpone them... Just DO!

      I was shell-shocked at first, and, like Mister B, I did not know what to say, but........
      I think that knowing is better than not knowing. There is strength in knowledge.
      There is likely also strength in a parent or mentor having walked this path and encountered some of the pitfalls.

      I think we all have certain qualities of AS in each of us. Perhaps the reason why we gravitate towards each other ... in some ways we understand how our minds/spirits operate.

      From a tweet I read today but yes yes oh god yes... Sadly every single time...

      "I'm #autistic, I'm happy I've friends and know lots of people, but "bumping into" them - my mind races to find a "script" for chatting.."




      But if things wonder of track I'm lost and suppose come off as rude as I make my exit
