    Default Could I have a form of mild asperger's?

    I've been looking in to Asperger's and I relate to a fair amount of the symptoms.. but I don't really know. Does it sound like I might?
    - I've always had problems with social awkwardness, and for me it's not getting better. I have not made any new friends in person for 6 years. I find it very difficult to start or maintain a conversation.

    - I have some trouble reading peoples facial expressions sometimes, and I don't make eye contact with people, I never have really. When I think about it, I do, but when I don't think about it I never do.

    - My interests are kind of limited, i am interested in psychology, personality quizzes, food but not really much else. I can seriously talk about personality quizzes for hours, same with cats. I find it difficult wathing things and reading books I'm not interested in.

    - My small motor skills are bad. I am terrible at crafting, sewing (the instructions are hard for me to understand, there's WAY too much detail in it for me), my hand-writing is very messy, I am slow learning hands-on stuff but usually great at learning theory and concepts..

    - I am clumsy and awkward sometimes, but not all the time.

    - I only wear 2-3 outfits, I don't put any effort in to hair or makeup..

    I don't know, I think a more mild form of asperger's is a possibility but I question that because I don't have any special routines nor am I a fan of schedules like most people with Asperger's are. I'm not skilled or talented at anything, really.

    In real life it is actually painful to listen to me talk because I am horrible at putting sentences together when I talk sometimes.

    Take an online test to see. Try out supplements like Piracetam or Aniracetam to see if they help.

    According to my professional opinion, you have eye herpes. I'm sorry.

    I think Aspergers syndrome is too rare compared to its chameleon counterpart, giftedness. Gifted Intellect is far more common and brings with it many traits of the Aspie: emotional sensitivity, hypersensitivity (in some cases), antisocial-esque behavior, social awkwardness, and being better at mental challenges than physical challenges. The main underlying problem with the Aspie is that they are inhibited socially. They don't really understand that other people are people, they see them as objects, whereas the gifted person would see them as people, but perhaps treat them like objects.

    In any case, this is the best online test to basically figure out if you're NT or Aspie, (or gifted NT) (Warning, the site looks shitty but the test is pretty good in my opinion)

    I wouldn't rule it out.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Most of those sound relatively normal.

    I took the test and it said 132 out of 200 for aspie traits and 63 out of 200 for non. that being said I don't think I have asperger's.

    Hi, I think that what you describe could be one of several different things or a combination, you could also have high functioning autism or asbergers. I would be curious to understand how isolated you are?

    You said you have not made new friends (IRL?) in six years. Is that since finishing school? Do you have any old friends? Support? Family?

    There are large communities of Aspies on the internet, it might be more helpful for you to seek out those rather than do the online tests. Also how helpful would it be for you to have a diagnosis? For some it brings clarity, access to resources, relief for family and friends etc. For others it's a label and they would rather not have the associated stigma.
