    Well, I always wondered why I couldn't find anyone else with my predicament. So randomly yesterday after being hounded by my mom for other reasons (actually not related to my ASD) I got into deep thought, "why is she uprate right now? Is it that time of the month? No it was only briefly after she had a couple drinks, so is she stressed? Yes probably she's had a tooth ache and root canal earlier today? But is that all? ... " Then started to think to myself as I have been finding myself do more recently, "why am I analyzing people like this? Does it ever help? Do normal people do this (NTs as I've seen them called on here) or is this part of having Asperger's? Even for an aspie is that normal?" And so I decided to look for a forum. And here I am. I'll mention I'm 22, going to school to be a mechanical engineer. I was diagnosed with Asperger's when I was in 8th grade (2011) but before had been diagnosed with ADD which is a common misdiagnosis so I've been told. Thankfully my mom is fairly understanding and brother is like a good friend but my dad never really could understand why I was different, although now I think he knows I'm probably going to be, if not already, smarter/wiser than him even if he doesn't say it. If you couldn't tell by now I think I'm the type to go into a lot of detail when explaining things so I sometimes catch myself and wrap it up or cut it off, like now.

    Hi, I'm Heather

    Hi, I'm Heather. I'm 18 years old. I've done hours upon hours of research and watching documentaries on ASD and AS. I'm certain that I fall on the spectrum. I've always known I'm different from others in some way. I have sensory issues, stims, trouble communication, bad eye contact, anxiety when things change, ect. I realized I could very possibly be on the spectrum a year in a half or so ago thanks to my endless research, which I'm still doing. I was going to be formally tested for ASD a few months back, but my family didn't have the money. I hopefully will be tested soon.

    Hello everyone! My name is Alex, I’m 26, and I think I might have aspergers, I’ve been seriously struggling a lot socially and emotionally. I had in the past 2 years a good job, and I’m good on languages and analyzing stuff. I’m very shy out of my house, and I feel very lonely as I have difficulties to communicate with people due to my anxiety /social anxiety. I’ve been reviewing my last years in life and I think there are strong evidences that I have aspergers. I’m very interested in nature (the most powerful thing to relax me), walks, beaches/sea... Hope to make friends and live a more meaningful life.

    The New Guy

    I should probably start by saying that I have not been diagnosed on any spectrum. I was diagnosed with depression a decade ago, but it was not until I noticed a declining ability to empathize with my wife (7 yrs now) that I wondered if I may be on the spectrum. A few online tests and reading David Finch shows I have "a whole lot of Asperger's". I've read that a diagnosis can really help couples understand each other and grow. I believe my wife would be supportive if I was diagnosed, but I have also seen sites like https://www.theneurotypical.com that are filled with Asperger's divorce stories, and it scares the hell out of me. I'm also worried how it could change my career and family. I guess as a informed group, is a diagnosis worth it? I apologize if I come off ignorant in any way.

    Vintage specim(a)n

    I recently found this site and forum. I am a vintage male, near retirement, and suspect that I am an HFA (undiagnosed). This is based on observations from my wife and adult daughter that were first discussed with me a couple of years ago. Initially, I dismissed what they were suggesting, but I wound up becoming curious about autism. The more I read and learned, the more I suspected that I am on the spectrum. This epiphany served to explain many aspects of my childhood and adult life. I hope to contribute where I can and continue to learn. Thanks, Scott

    hello everybody

    Hi I was pretty confused most of my life, then my oldest son got ASD diagnosis earlier this year and I started to wonder. Went to the doc and now have a diagnosis, and so many things make sense now. Obviously a lot still doesn't.

    Hello, everyone! My name is Jessie. I read about joining a forum in the book "Aspergirls" by Rudy Simone. I hope that this will be helpful to me, and I want to make new friends too!

    I have aspergers

    Hello, I am 12 years old and I have had aspergers my entire life and I would really like to meet some people who are the same age as me with apergers. At my school I am found annoying and that makes me sad. Does anyone feel that way?

    Wanna be friends?

    Hi everyone, I'm sort of nervous using this forum for the first time, besides I find a lot of social media stuff a bit daunting. My name is Nicholas. I am going to be honest, I am sort of lonely. I don't think I'm obscenely uninteresting or too annoying, but I am not very good at socializing. I don't really have a lot of "full friends", more just "semi-friends" that I sort of small talk with. I decided that this website would probably be the best place where I can "attempt" to socialize. I feel like I should give a description of myself if anyone wants to know about me: I am an 18 year old male, gay, currently attending college. I would say that I am very left-wing; very friendly with anarchists, Marxists, and the likes. Subjects I enjoy include are computer science, math, physics, philosophy (nihilism is one of my favs), and linguistics. I am not particularly athletic-- I don't really care for most competitive team sports. I prefer more recreational sports like biking and hiking. I also do kickboxing. I love to draw, watch horror movies (I love scary stuff), and I faun all over adorable animals. I'm sorry, I am looking over this and I know that I must look sort of pathetic. If thinks I am worth talking too, thank you.

    Hi ^-^ (noob)

    Hey everyone, not going to lie I've been a bit hesitant to post here (nerves) But I felt this is a good place and maybe I'll make some new friends. I always feel I'm going to be judged negatively. So, with that being said here is a little about me and what I'm about. I sort of just copied this from the "About me" section I just typed up ^-^ It was easier that way. This is the first time I've ever really opened up about myself to anyone. My name is Andre, I'm 25 years old as of April 11th. I make music, instrumentals, recording, remixing and Dj'ing as well. I frequently spend hours on end working on new sounds, hidden away from the world. When I'm not working on, or listening to music I'm designing my website and marketing my stuffs ^-^ Or if I feel like getting out in the world I like to check out thrift stores, goodwill's and garage sales for vintage treasure, exploring forests taking in nature or fishing. Love gaming as well as it helps get my mind of a lot of stress. I have absolutely no social life. haha. Everything I have built up in my life has been self taught as I was unable to focus or even be slightly happy in school. You could say the internet raised me I was first diagnosed ASD this year (2016) once I became more consciously aware of myself, and after lengthy research I decided to talk to someone about it. Prior to this I was diagnosed with severe anxiety, panic disorder, adhd and depression. I went my whole life without knowing as my parents showed no interest in me. (My mother abandoned me when I was 13 in an apartment and my father is a negative alcoholic) So that wasn't much help! (lol) But I'm actually glad my life turned out like this because it made me the person I am today. Positive, enthusiastic, kind-hearted and humble.

    Hi From UK

    Hello I am new here. This is a great site and obviously has an active user base. I am very interested in autism and asperger's and run a site in the UK to help young adults find friendships . I am always enthusiastic to see what comments are placed on aspie and autism forums. Hope I can contribute.

    New Here

    Hi. My name is Lanie. I just joined and wanted to introduce myself. I'm 23 and live in Texas. The most important thing about me is that I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My religion is everything to me and helps me deal with my disabilities. I'm blind, have the form of autism known as PDD-NOS, and struggle with several chronic illnesses, but I believe God gave them to me for a reason. Right now, I'm living with my family and taking college classes online since my disabilities make traveling very hard. I'm studying for a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology specializing in software and web development. I would like to meet other people with any form of autism, anyone who has multiple disabilities like I do, and anyone who shares my faith or interests.

    Hi my name is Steven Landau. I am 17 years old and I finally decided to join this site to meet others like myself. I have struggled with Aspergers for awhile now. I constantly feel like i am a target of amusement for those around me and I hate it. I understand that here I am like everyone else and appreciate that immensely. I plan on attending Rochester Institute of Technology next year for computer science. I also play a lot of video games and like to read. Just introducing myself, nice to meet everyone. -Steven Landau
  14. Ayla Paraclete

    Hi, Ayla here...

    Hi, all I'm glad this is moderated because, before I say anything else, I wanted to thank Willow for all her YouTube Videos. When I first learned about my Asperger's, I spent all weekend watching her videos, and they were the best of help ! ! ! I'm sure others feel the same - and I remember being so grateful that there are people out there who "get it." I thought I recognized those eyes in the masthead, even though it's been a couple years ! ! It will be fun getting to know everyone here. As a cultural reference, I was born and have always lived in the Northwest corner of the United Stats. I was a Criminal Justice student until I recently realized I am unemployable in my area without an education in Human Services (begun last week). There are so many people caught in the justice system who actually belong in mental health or recovery programs. Most of them need to learn social skills, like us, before they can succeed. That means my specialty is restorative justice - the relationships between victim, offender, and community and a way to successfully (re)integrate into society. Human services has a lot of psychology and social interaction coursework. I am creating a blog for related information. I will hopefully be inviting you-all to participate in surveys and polls, because the lack of social skills is our spe-ci-al-i-ty. Take care... Oh, yes, my "Ayla" is a nickname and is the Real Me. I use her to keep me focused on my strengths, on who I am rather than what I became, and to remind me to keep an "I Can Do" mindset. She is a warrior, but with less brutality than the Amazon Warriors have been purported to be. Take Care!!!!! Happy to be here

    New to the site

    Hi, I am the mum of a 14 year old girl with suspected AS. there has been no official diagnosis and I have not yet discussed aspergers with my daughter. Together we discuss how she feels, her challenges etc all the time, we speak about it without a label, but her school situation is beginning to change and I think that we might need to take the next step. That is why I am here, looking for advice, answers, support. how do I tell her? when? i have posted a more detailed description of our situation under diagnosis. thanks

    Hello, Hola, Bonjour, Guten Tag

    Hi everyone, I'm Becca, and honestly I just like a lot of stuff. If you looked on my mp3 player - yeah, I'm old-school, no iPod for me - you'd find a variety of stuff ranging from One Direction to Kansas to Charli XCX. I like a little bit of everything as far as music's concerned. Most of the stuff I watch is American, so I watch it online because otherwise I have to wait months for it to come to the UK, and I'm not waiting months to watch new Supernatural episodes! Just some of the stuff l like to watch includes; Faking It, Orphan Black, Orange Is The New Black, Supernatural, How To Get Away With Murder, Glee, Game of Thrones, Pushing Daisies..... you get the picture. Now about more me. I was diagnosed with Aspergers and ADD in about 2011-2012ish, and it was just like someone had switched a light on suddenly. I loved having a name to what made me different, instead of just being the weird girl. About a year or so after my Aspergers diagnosis, I realised I'm also bisexual, so there's another minority I belong to. Honestly, I'm just weird, and I like it. I'm special. I'm always open to conversations with anyone nice, especially if you're into some of the stuff I am, because then we can fangirl together.

    Hello, i found out about this forum today after seeing some of Willow's videos while feeding my casual obsession for knowledge about aspergers. Now for a fraction of a life story i suppose, i found out about aspergers a few weeks ago when my mother mentioned that "they", likely meaning her and my grand mother or her and some government mental health types, figured out that i have aspergers while i was still a toddler, though until now i had no idea, i was raised mostly like a "normal", bad word i know but people understand what it means, child/teenager, which as some might guess led to me often wondering what was wrong with me and thinking that i was insane or extremely stupid, sometimes both, at one point i thought i was a sociopath, if that is a good example of how screwed up i was, and that was just last year that i thought that, i have blocked massive portions of my past out just so that i could cope to a tiny extent, enough about that though, people seem to be rarely interested in others problems unless it is for the purpose of giving sympathy so that others opinions of them are raised, well that and drama/gosip, not that i blame anyone for that, it is the NT thing to do and you cannot really hate people for doing what is in their nature to do. Onwards, once i found out that i likely have aspergers i decided to start researching it, i had done a few of the online tests like the psychcentral autism/asperger quiz and got high results(high meaning more likely to have aspergers), but since i get high results on most of their mental disorder quizzes and a lot of the other websites with checklists and such did not really match up(why do they all say that aspies do not feel emotion? ) i figured that it was just another dud, but after i went back and started researching again in the past two or three weeks i found that everything matched up when i looked at what people with aspergers had to say in places like reddit/aspergers and wrongplanet, i have not tried talking with anyone about it yet but i felt the urge when i saw this forum, could be the friendly atmosphere and calming website design, who knows, so here i am hoping to learn more and maybe figure out some ways to fix the damage that has been done to my life by my aspergers and others ignorance/apathy. By the way, i had fun with the topic tags, no need to get too bothered by them, unless bothered is fun, also the registration question that can be my sig is great, i love that it allowed the answer to be 0.

    Newbie Introductions

    Hello Just recently joined Asperclick after coming across it while researching my condition. I was recently diagnosed after coming back to the US after many years over seas. Looking to chat with people who are more familiar with their own condition or attempt to relate to those who were diagnosed in adulthood and the struggles that have come about in result of that. As my profile states I enjoy reading, researching, smoking, drinking tea and writing research articles. I am also currently in a relationship with someone who is also on the spectrum but in a different form from mine (ADD.) Not very good at short introductions but, oh well. Hi there!
  19. Pharaoh_G


    Hello everyone!! My name is Timotheus, also known as T.J., T-Mo, Timmy, Tiny Tim, or Pharaoh, and I'm currently an MFA writing student, writer, and co-founder of an online organization called AbilitySota. I'm what they called high functioning autistic; I was diagonosed at age 2 1/2. I love sports, especially American football...I could talk about it all day and never stop! lol I'm also into social sciences and spirituality. Fun fact: I could watch the same movie over and over again, to the point where I memorize movie quotes. I'm looking forward to meeting some of you all and chatting with you on engaging topics.
  20. JoshJones


    Hello, my name is Josh and I am 23. I was diagnosed with Asperger's around 2 months ago, after a very long time of going back and forth through the mental health system in the UK. I am a student, and wanting to pursue my interests in neurobiology and neuroscience, though I am a long way from being proficient I thought I would start a profile and see how to get into being a member on a forum for people with Asperger's, as I think it might help me relax from life which can so often prove to be difficult and overwhelming. So i guess that's me for now, and I look forward to getting into being a member here
  21. MichalBeth7

    Hi. :)

    Hello. My name is MichalBeth (Named after my father, lol.), and I was recently diagnosed with Aspergers at 19. Being a girl and diagnosed later in life is apparently intriguing, or so I've been told, haha. I have always felt sort of out of place (Major understatement, but you get the idea.), but never really thought about it too much, even though I had multiple teachers throughout grade school tell my grandparents to have me evaluated! I never really did any looking into it until I reached college. I was struggling, big time. Also, I had quite a few family issues come up (My sister became very ill from E-Coli, and both of my other grandparents passed within a relatively short amount of time.). The worse things became, the worse my symptoms became. At the time I had actually decided to major in Special Education. I had to do research into Aspergers, and low and behold, as I read I saw myself in those symptoms listed on that page. I saw that there might be a reason I feel so exhausted after social events, why I have such trouble maintaining friendships, why I love learning, yet a classroom is the last place I would like to be. I could go on, but you get the picture. I sought medical advice, and I was diagnosed soon after my 19th birthday, and I must say that being diagnosed has been a great thing for me. It has brought me hope that I am not alone, and that there's a valid reason as to why I do what I do. This is a new journey for me, I'm open to learning everything I can to help me. I'm also just glad that I am not alone. Much of my life I have felt isolated. It feels nice to be connected somewhere. This post could be longer, but I don't want to bore y'all. I'm excited to be here.
  22. cherry


    i'm really bad at these introduction things. anyway. i'm devon, or ainsley, or even cherry, if you'd like. i honestly don't care. i'm eighteen years old, and live way down in the south us. i'm genderfluid? what that means, in the most basic way of explanation, is that sometimes i feel like a girl, sometimes i feel like a boy, and most of the time i feel like this creature of the blackest abyss with no real shape, form, or gender, other than this resounding and all-consuming form of consciousness. or maybe that's not the best way to introduce myself. (use singular they/them pronouns for me, please! it might sound like an odd request, but both she/her and he/him pronouns make me supremely uncomfortable, so i'd really appreciate it. or if for some reason, they/them pronouns rub your grammatical senses the wrong way, then you may use she/her and he/him pronouns, but only on the condition that you change them on a regular basis, and try to use them each about similar amounts.) i like girls, mainly, and sometimes boys, and other non-binary people like myself? uh. i dunno. i could elaborate on that, but i've found that the term which best fits me tends to be the term polysexual? not as in poly like a poly relationship (i.e. a relationship with more than two people) but polysexual as in i'm attracted to polygons. (ahem. or just more than one or two genders and/or traditionally gendered traits and/or sexes.) i'm kind of really into the whole social justice thing, such as equal rights and all, but i'll keep discussion of that to a minimum on here, seeing as, y'know, this isn't really a forum intended for that. unfortunately, social justice and the like tends to be extremely draining to my mental state, so i try to also avoid getting worked up about it. i am also a witch-y pagan-ish thing. still trying to figure out labels for that, but you get the gist, i think. (insert obligatory "i don't worship satan because witchcraft is in and of itself secular" comment here.) as far as asperger's goes, i don't have an official diagnosis. that doesn't mean that i haven't done my research, however, and even though i am eighteen, i am not simply waltzing blithely into self dx'ing, without having the slightest clue of what i'm actually doing. i've looked through forums, watched videos, read many (many) lists of traits. i've read blog posts and checked myself against the dsm-v criteria for asds. and through all of these things, i've only grown more and more convinced that i do have asperger's, because the common thread in all of this is that in every video, or blog post, or list of traits that i've found is that i see myself in these people. i see the things i've struggled with for my entire life, and i see the way i'm not alone in these struggles, and i feel less alien, and less alone. anyway. i'm basically positive that i have asperger's, though i would like to get an official diagnosis, mostly for validation purposes. a few more things about me? main interests include running a blog, reading (mostly nonfiction on the internet these days, seeing as over the past few years, i've found it harder and harder to concentrate on novels), writing, anime, medicine & medical-related things (like diseases and such), baking/cooking, designing and building blog layouts (which i'd like to think i'm fairly good at, seeing as i've been making webpages and the like since i was about twelve), computer games (tera rising, minecraft, skyrim, etc.), and music. i think that's about it? i mean there's more i could write, but this is already a little on the excessive side. i always tend to ramble on to the end of the earth when i'm introducing myself. apologies. nice to meet you all!!
