    It's a rare condition
    It's what you're suffering from
    When you simply don't care if it's an
    80 degree day and there's no fricken air conditioning
    And you can't see the *****’s hair is frizzing
    Cause you got the windows up...

    I thought Asperger's was pretty much a requirement for AMA's?

    But for real OP, did you ever suspect you had it before you were diagnosed? Had you noticed symptoms in yourself without knowing what they were?

    Nope, and don't intend to.

    I don't intend to milk it or anything.

    What is Aspergers syndrome?
    asperger syndrome is a developmental disorder characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests.

    It is an autism spectrum disorder and differs from other disorders by relatively normal language and intelligence

    What lead you to seek a diagnosis and did other people like family members or friends notice things and encourage you to see a professional or was it on your own volition?

    Not always. Repetitive patterns is normal but nonverbal communication is just one facet; some of us are able to read people pretty much as well as NTs are, and in some cases even better - for example I can always tell (in a face-to-face setting) if someone is lying to me.

    Also I know aspies who are very much at ease in social situations, having no problems interacting.

    And concerning intelligence and language, again most aspies I know of are incredibly intelligent, creative, and polymathic. One of my friends paints, sculpts, plays various instruments, and writes. I myself write, play instruments, and have a high level of expertise in radio and computing technologies at the low level. I also know a dozen languages, at one point having collected them like you might collect stamps.
