Comments: Diagnosed with a number of things, including "Attention Deficit Disorder" before finding out the real reason, which was that I am Autistic. I was diagnosed with Aspergers in late 2001, just before I turned 21. My main comment is that Aspies are people like anybody else, just hitting the world in a way that prevents us from connecting with other people. NTs seem to have a bigger problem with Aspies then we do ourselves. I try and take my condition as it is, Although bright lights and lots of noise troubles me, I try and avoid public places as much as I have to, or If I do go on a train, I sit away from other people. As for friends, I really dont have that many, or any. I know a few NTs, but we dont have much in common, I get on well with my parents, who are NTs but try there best to support me and listen to me and my obsessions, which is good. I am not to fussed on a relationship, I dont think I have the pining over people lilke many NTs tend to.
