Hello. I've been officially diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. I'm not sure I actually have it, but I have. I've also been diagnosed with AD-HD (which I definitely have) and Anxiety Disorder NOS (if never worrying about anything is an anxiety disorder, this is spot on.)
When I was diagnosed I naturally consumed every book on Asperger's that my parents bought, which was quite a few. It was weird--I have some classic aspie traits, but there are others I don't have a trace of. For example, I do tend to get obsessive about things, particularly when I was younger. If you asked ten-twelve year old me what a Parasurolophus was you'd get an earful (it's a dinosaur, incidentally. I've forgotten the rest.) Now if you were to ask me about poetic metre... well, don't unless you have an interest in anapaests.
On the other hand I have near-perfect balance, an impeccable sense of direction (I spend much of my time wandering unfamiliar suburbs alone on roller skates), good motor skills both gross and fine (although my handwriting is appalling,) a good sense of rhythm and timing, good colour judgment, and at least a rudimentary ability to know when to talk and when to shut up in conversation. Also I understand eye contact bothers some people but it has less affect on me than on most NTs. I do stare sometimes but I'll recognise I must be bothering the other person.
My parents tell me I was very aspieish growing up--I started talking pretty much in complete sentences, acquired grammar very quickly and talked to adults exactly the same way I talked to kids. I'm also informed that as a kid I was once given the assignment 'colour in all the things that start with D,' which I didn't want to do so I scribbled all over it and told the teacher 'D is for DARK and I'm DONE.' This stroke of genius failed to get me out of the assignment so I sulked. I still don't like it when people fail to appreciate my cleverness.
I have a feeling I'm rambling and hurting the chances of this actually being read, so I'll summarize the rest. I love novels, I want to be a writer when I grow up. I have no problem with the big picture, and any time I notice something that doesn't fit it it's because it stands out from the things around it. I don't have any sensation-avoiding behaviors whatso--strike that, I don't like slimy food. On the other hand I think a lot, rock back and forward, play with my hair a lot (bits of it end up everywhere) and focus so intently on one thing I ignore the world. Then, I ignore the world by entering a completely non-distractible state, which is a very non-aspie trait. I'm good with numbers but I don't like them, and I suck at remembering meaningless strings, but song lyrics lodge in my head like, um, something that lodges in your head.
Finally, I took some of you're aspie tests and they all say 'no you're not an aspie.' So, assuming you care to read my tiny autobiography, do you think I am or not? I'm really smart, maybe I'm just aping normal behavior well.
