I Think...I'm 27 years old and think I may have undiagnosed Asperger's Syndrome. Everything I've read on the subject sounds so much like me it's kind of scary. I can't recall all the symptoms I've read right now, but a few that spring to mind are that I have a high IQ, I am bluntly honest, I have a really hard time in social situations, and the whole obsession with little things or stimming behavior I've read about is totally something I engage in when I feel a need for comfort.
I really think this may be something that's been affecting me all my life and that I could have used a lot of help on to make my life better than it has been. I feel like I *know* this is what's wrong with me. I've never felt normal or even human, really, and I feel kind of cheated by the fact that nobody ever tested me for autism. There are certain things I did as a child that I feel really should have tipped someone off and made them think to test me for it or at least put me in some counseling or something.
I'm not sure how to go about getting tested or possibly diagnosed. Do you talk to a doctor about it or a psychologist? I feel like getting a diagnosis would finally make it easier for me to find help and start working on a better life.
