    Waiting To Be Assessed.

    I have two friends with aspergers and they both think I have it. I have had problems all my life, and have had a couple of dianoses-schizophrenia and bpd, though both were made by counsellers who were not qualified to diagnose. But both felt that I had deeper problems than...

    I was diagnosed in 1973 with ADHD.

    I ALSO have PTSD. I was abused and bullied bad when I was younger. I was told couple months ago by my therapist that he suspected that I might have it. I live in Palmdale California.

    A Whole New World

    I'm currently awaiting a letter or a call from my doctor. He's trying to figure out where to send me. He obviously doesn't get "I think I have Asperger's" from a patient every day, and clearly didn't know whom to talk to. But hopefully, he'll find a professional who actually does...

    Mostly about Asperger's: I Have A Cocktail Of Mental Illnesses

    I wasn't diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, or Bipolar 2 disorder until I was nineteen. I am twenty-one now. When I was younger I felt alone. I didn't fit in with the boys in elementary because they were active and I was clumsy. I didn't fit in with the girls. They had ability...

    Informal Diagnosis

    Last Wednesday, I finally brought up Asperger's with my psychiatrist. I had been wanting to do it for a long time, but have always been too nervous, assuming she would think it was all in my head. However, when I told her I think I may have it, she said that she has been waiting...

    Maybe, Maybe Not

    It's hard to tell, being 22. I keep reading that adult aspies can become very functional to the point where it's difficult to tell. But then looking back, I do have a number of signs that would indicate Asperger's. I guess I need to go and get evaluated - but, I'm shy and have no...

    I have a weird way of expressing my Asperger's. I am hopelessly disorganized, I can never remember to shower or brush my hair or teeth. It isn't because I don't care. It just isn't as important to me. My parents either don't know or have never told me about my Asperger's. They...

    I need to get some things under control.

    So I was looking up some tips in regards to Aspergers, and the comments people left about their spouses/ex's really upset me. I don't want my partner to ever think of me that way or think I'm intentionally an *******. Just needed to vent.

    I Feel Different

    I believe it's likely I have a mild form of Asperger's. At school I was bullied because of the way I spoke. I had an unusually formal or 'proper' way of speaking, which is one of the traits. Most of my classmates had a pretty common way of talking, so this was picked up very...

    I found this image about this anime "Parasite"

    or "Parasyte", I think it's called both ways, I just end watching the anime and I remember thinking about the parasites like Asperger's people, without showing emotions, and being just rational, makes me think that the author of the manga takes bases on Asperger's syndrome.
