Are you autistic?


Do you have asd/aspergers or do you suspect you might?

Probably. Undiagnosed. I also suspect I have schizoid personality disorder though. My family is full of undiagnosed weirdness alongside one cousin who was diagnosed with schizophrenia, but only because he nearly stabbed his sister. My mum kind of seems autistic but mildly.

Also my dad went on holiday not long ago and told me that he ended up in a cafe with a woman who in addition to running that also worked as some kind of therapist. Some guy came into the cafe who was autistic, after he left she started talking to my dad about how she was helping him because he said hi to my dad which he apparently has never done before, and then my dad decided to start talking to her about me and she recommended this place where you can get diagnosed here which I did already know about, costs money though. She apparently also knew Simon Baron Cohen. I wasn't there so can only go off what my dad was relaying.

Getting the diagnoses without therapy is kind of almost the reverse of productive I think.

The teeth have long departed
Yet the desire burns strong
On in desire for destruction
One on which she'll depend
One that ceases to deepen
Too near bitter end

She turns her loosening ring

You're still yours, you're still yours"

I'm something, nothing as fancy as autism I bet 😞






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Well, I havent had friends I hung out with since I was 11 and I'm 26. So 15 years without friends. There must be something wrong with me mentally. Not sure if it's autism or what...But something keeps people from wanting to be more than an acquaintance even though I talk more. I've been avoiding talking more recently though cause I do not like talking to people for good reason.

I suspect I do. I have an awkward way of talking, don't respond well to physical touch, and can't seem to effortlessly connect. Sometimes I feel like a lot of people have the social script and I never received it. But this is speculation so there's a good chance I don't have autism at all

Yes, something is a bit off about me. I'm a bit like Spock when it comes to other people's feelings or emotions. I don't have a filter and have the tendency to just say whatever comes to mind.

I don’t know. My niece and nephew are being assessed for it, and my family say they’re a lot like me. I always get high scores on online tests.

My bad habits and tendencies of people pleasing and sugarcoating I think might be a confirmation that I am not.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

Do you mean you don't like talking to people without good reason?

Most likely and my doctor thinks I have it. Not sure if I should get officially diagnosed, it's not like they can fix it. Would just be money spent where I could spend elsewhere. Already take a medication that's used to control autistic behavior so it'll remain a mystery for now.

Don't let people treat you like dirt.

Yea. Like if they're fake or mean then I wont talk to them. But they have to be someone that's nice and non judgmental me to want to talk.


I was a mute in HS and barely talked but I dont know if that's autism. I think if I had it my social skills probably wouldn't improve but idk.

Yes, I went through many hours of assessment and was diagnosed with ASD by a neuropsychiatrist back in 2016. There's no treatment but I found it important for self-discovery for why I am the way I am.

You are kind of blunt, but I thought it was because you lived a difficult and fascinating life - so you're just less of a "snowflake" when giving an opinion on something.

I always think your posts are an interesting read

Where did you do that test? I know I did it a looooong time ago but I'd like.to do it again but I have no idea where the website was.

First it was so quiet and now I know I am not alone in here.
