I have never heard of a female with asperger's. On record it says that I have it, but I am hesitant to believe it.
Why do you know so much about this? are you googling it or do you really just come out with this stuff from the depths of the wisdom in your head?
It's not a learning condition, and if you believe it is then you don't have it.
You were diagnosed at the HOSPITAL?
Get a doctor who has a degree.
with socialism in life, you don't get to fully be human, must be hard.
I sometimes think I have a very mild version of it. There's no question I've gotten much more socially adept as I've gotten older, but I still have tremendously awkward moments with saying the wrong things and butting into conversations or just boring people with pedantic lectures in the style of Sheldon Cooper.
And thinking in pictures.
i might have it myself except doctors wouldnt test me, i feel like im always on the outside looking in, like im never the one dating , getting married or having kids, its like the rest of the world is having fun except me and i just dont know how to fit in like that
I have always wondered what the deal was with both Aspergers and Autism. I know they're not the same thing but the similarity is striking enough to make me wonder. The best I have is that both Autistics and Aspergers have an issue with connecting, but the Asperger wants friends and cannot stand loneliness, and the Autistic does not, however. That's all I know and I'm not certain of what it really is.
Asperger's is an autism spectrum disorder.
We don't know that for sure.
In the DSM-IV, Asperger's syndrome is autistic disorder without any speech delay. In the DSM-5, they are both classified as autistic spectrum disorder.
I do have it, and technically it's not a learning condition, it's a personality disorder.
But yeah, it feels like everyone else is at a party but I'm not invited. :(
And you make it worse for yourself by refusing to practice requisite skills.
It's not really a personality disorder, either... It's, well, autism. It's hard to try to define it in terms of other things since it's quite unique. 'Disability', maybe?
Life has always been complicated for me. I was always different, I had few friends, I am very smart, but stupid when it came to being social. People never understand me, even today. I feel alienated from everyone else... When I am in a social setting, my friend will usually tell the other people that "something is wrong with me..." so they understand why I act so much differently than "normal' people do.
I think that sometimes I need to put a sign on my shirt that says "Please bear with me, I am not normal". I often say that everyone should wear name tags like we did in kindergarten so that I can know everyone's name - even for people who I see regularly. I know people by what shoes they wear, not by their names or what they look like. I am the one that they always make jokes about, and I don't even get it, so it doesn't bother me when they say it in front of me (until I finally realize what they mean). I am the one that no one wants to talk to, because I never shut up, and they usually don't care what I am talking about anyway (but I never notice that until it is too late).
It is hard being me, but there are a lot of good parts to being an Apsie. I am very intelligent, I am great at focusing on work, and became very successful because of that. I don't spend much time at all socializing, so it gives me more time to focus on my work. I love to read and learn as much as I can, and that is something that I can do on my own, so I am great at keeping myself busy. I do get to help people a lot, anytime anyone has a problem that they cant figure out, I am the one they call (that isn't really being social, but it does make me feel needed). I can resolve problems in ways that most people would never even think of, it is nice to be able to think differently than most people, another thing that makes me able to do things that most people cant..
There are good things, and bad things... Since I spent my entire life being me, I don't know what it is like to be like everyone else...
No monomania - social anxiety disorder.
Technically, i should know it.
No...I haven't. And I'm sorry that you do.
