Do you think it's really Aspergers that makes SA or are they separate?


I was diagnosed as an "Aspie" in 2016. All these years unable to make connections to most people unless they have a special gift of kindness, gentle and talk to you like they've known you a long time.

Sometimes I wonder is it just Asperger's or do I have both? Are they two things I have or do I just have Asperger's that makes me this way. Really it makes us socially awkward if we have it for a lot of us.

Some Aspies don't like to be touched a lot or hugged, kissed much or at all. I dont like it much. At the same time I think we long for close relationships where we can feel more intimate with people platonic/romantic relationships. It's weird to feel that way but the reality is it doesn't always happen and it's scary to think about actually having relationships that are close beyond what we imagine. Imagine it is one thing.

I just dont know how to get on the same level with anyone. I'm in my own world. I dont understand the way life is supposed to be.

"A simple man believes everything he hears; a clever man understands the need for proof." Proverbs 14:15-The New English Bible

Well I don't think I know much about Aspergers tbh - only what I've seen on the media. But from what I've seen they're two separate things. I don't think I'm like that - I don't mind being touched or hugged and I think I can relate to people okay. When I'm feeling alright anyway.

I think I've seen on here that some people think they have both though.
