I get shy around people, don't like group work and always live in fear that people don't like me

I just don't know how to feel letting people know

Honestly you have problems that I imagine most people struggle with, we all have insecurities that we have to deal with it's probably easier for us to hide them though. Maybe if you explain your condition beforehand to people they'll be more understanding when you act aloof, after all it's not like it's your fault.

Relax, the problem is probably a million times worse in your head than in actual reality
I've had that line a million times

Maybe cos it's true?
It's not always though.

I'm a bit apprehensive telling people, unless it's people I know. It's because I know people have opinion on Autism/ Aspergers - such as it doesn't exist, I don't have it, it's an excuse for poor parenting, etc.

I suffer from all these things.

Is it possible I have Aspergers? No one has diagnosed me with it.

The only way is to push yourself and make an effort. There is no other way of overcoming it.

Maybe. But that's not just the criteria.

Tell me all the criteria. Or at least the most important criteria. Then tell me how I can find out if I have it.

Not necessarily, Not every person that's shy and hates group works has Asperger's.

Indeed. I know people with Aspergers who want to work in groups, etc. I personally don't; but have a friend who does.

Ok. No one has told me what the symptoms are or how I can find out if I have it. All you have said is 'if you do X or act like Y it doesn't necessarily mean you have it' which isn't helpful.

OP, it would be helpful to know a bit more about you, which would help i.e are you in school, college, uni, do you want advice only on telling people, or how to be able to get over these fears or..?

You do realise that the OP came on here for advice, not to be diagnosing you, right? if you want to know about symptoms and how to get tested for it, google it. it literally took me about 10 seconds to google it and go onto the NHS website.

I'm a University student, engaged and I want advice on getting over certain fears that my Asperger's make worse like always thinking that no one likes me and such. I always tend to think that things are worse then they actually are and I am aware that I do this which is probably why I don't enjoy group work which doing Drama can be tough.
