    I have Asperger's syndrome, and Im pretty sure I aint the only one here on the board.
    Feel free to post and talk about your life with autism!
    I would indeed like to talk with other people like me, to exchange knowledge about the syndrome and what kind of difficulties it gives.

    And please, keep it clean and "aspie-joke-free", since I really cant stand that.

    I've been diagnosed with it, but I've gotten to the point where I put as much faith in those psychologists/psychiatrists as I do in politicians.

    When it gets down to it, how you act is a matter of your own choices. Not the drugs you take or the talking sessions you go through.

    That's a very nice point of view !
    However, I cant hide the fact that I suffer from a few socialdisorders.
    I could for example never go to a big party with lots of people and alchohol, it would just make me very uncalm.

    Pft.

    Looking back on my younger years, I would easily redo them with a certain amount of...maturity, shall we say. Kids are cruel, but it doesn't help when you realize you (unconsciously) went out of your way to make it harder on yourself.

    Oh, yeah, and the fact that I could never really focus on school after 3rd grade kind of sucked. :p  I still have issues...eheh.

    Aspergerites, unite! Combine to form Austumcon!

    I'm with artoni. Been diagnosed, but don't care. Until I try to get back into college, in which case I'm gonna upplay the crap out of it.

    Well ... there is a bright side of "skipping wild-parties" for me ...
    More money for Tf's ;)  ...

    Also for the whole school thing; Indeed teenagers can be cruel and look down on you, and concentrating in classes is a hard time. I really cant wait till I turn 18 so that I can get a job on a certain automated lighting fixture factory. One more year ...

    ...you're making me feel old, and I'm only 21. D:

    Find something that interests you and stick with it is all I can say. I'm going for my degree in Accounting as soon as 'Con season is over; I've always been pretty good with numbers. They, unlike a number of other things, make sense. :)

    Heh. I'm also going for a degree in Business (though the Accounting is first) for a 'dream job' of starting my own self-publishing company. Including the novel I'm trying to write. :) 

    Until then, fanfiction.

    Cool !
    About your self-publishing company, you should probably wait until the financial crisis is over :(  And yes, I hate it to. I might not be able to get my job next year because of that darn thing ...

    I'm with Artoni and trump on this. I too have Asperger's Syndrome, but at this point in my life, I pretty much just say "I have this mental disorder, but fuck it, I don't give a damn." I too have as much trust in my psychologist as I have in politicians. Just because I'm mildly mentally handicapped, doesn't mean I'm stupid. The meds I take, though, DO make me feel a bit stupid here and there.

    EDIT: If I ever felt like combining, you know DAMN WELL I'd be the head. Or the gun like Piranhacon. Either weapon (the mind or the ginormous laser cannon), I'm pretty damn good.

    WHAT.

    One of my psychs did bring up a good likeness, though he was actually bringing up depression; I have bad eyesight. I wear glasses. Doesn't make me any less. Some people have to take meds to handle their mental conditions, doesn't make -them- any less.

    What really gets me is the people who scream I HAVE ASPERGERS AND I'M PROUD. It's not an -accomplishment-. That's like me saying I'M 5'6" AND I'M PROUD.

    Yeah I think I got that too....

    Don't consider myself disabled though...I'm pretty successful without a job since I do allot of selling/buying for resell.

    But legally considered disabled, and I can't do math to save my life....I'm more of a History/Tech Person...dang those Binary parts of exams........Math is evil.....

    I prefer to be by myself though.......being around other people seems to make me less efficient cause I have to deal with all the so called "Social Graces" everyone wants you to have.....

    Yeah, sorry about that. I forget that I have a strange sense of humor sometimes. I think it would have helped if I'd found a more joking smiley, too.

    I call right birdie finger!
