    I can't take a joke because I take things literally and get REALLY angry, I never start a conversation with people, don't make eye contact hence my poor social skills. Other people have to talk to me then I respond.

    Are these signs of ASD?

    If you've always been like this then aspergers is a possibility but if it's a recent thing it could be the result of depression or social anxiety.

    Tbh there's not a lot you can actually do about it really, believe me I've tried a lot of strategies and there's nothing that works to alleviate the effects of Asperger's. Make sure your school knows about it so your teachers can take it into consideration when dealing with you, and if you can go to your GP to get a referral to get a diagnosis and that way you can get support at uni if you need it, but other than that it just is what it is and you have to live with it tbh.

    Then could be aspergers but you do need to get a proper diagnosis from a professional. See your GP and explain your problems and suspicions.

    I know it can be a bit difficult, but I'd honestly really really advise you to. Telling my school made my life a lot easier.

    Go to the docs and get it checked out. If you are diagnosed with aspergus its not the end of the world, in fact many people who have been diagnosed with it are relieved because they then know what its up with them, therefore making it easier to control

    Yep, all the time

    Do you even realise how much of an effect calling an Asperger's sufferer a 'sensitive little retard' has? Idiot. I sure as hell hope you have a kid with Asperger's, then you'll realise how much of a struggle it is.
