My psychiatrist has hinted around it to me - brought it up again when discussing my son (recently dx'd w/Asperger's). My mom tells me weekly that she thinks I have AS (she's a teacher and has had AS students the past 10 years or so and just 'sees' me in them). Officially I have a bipolar II dx and even though the psych has mentioned AS I just haven't felt that pursuing it was necessary. So the answer is: maybe.

So my poor dh and my mom have to be my only's.

This is me - people, in general, drive me crazy - I'm relatively anti-social. My sis and my mom are my gal pals. I think that having the internet and subject-specific message boards has really helped me feel connected but in a way that I'm comfortable with. I can do it on my own time and can be as obsessed about a topic as I want as I know I'm going to find other people with the same obsession.

Interesting quiz - I scored a 38. I'm one of those weird social people - I get real anxious when it comes to social situations or meeting new people but when I get in the situation I don't shutup, I'm hypersocial. I've always considered myself shy but outgoing - a bit of a conundrum.

This is me. I love email and the internet - I can get 'grown-up' conversation on my time.
