My son has autism, but to answer your question I have talked to many autistic people on these sites. smiley

I admit that I am to some degree with many minor things mixed together. I have learned how to work through most of it and doing so while remaining off the meds for over a decade and a half.

Iíve got a thing called Aspergerís syndrome which supposedly is under the autism spectrum

autistic folk7 months

Yes, PDDNOS specifically.

Yeah i'm autistic!
For the people unsure, Aspergers Syndrome is a form of autism but is no longsr classified seperately, as the only real thing distinguishing it in the DSM5 is wether or not the person has learning difficulties as an infant.

I was always autistic, but suffered a brain injury as a teenager. That's why I'm PDDNOS instead of Asperger's, according to my last diagnosis. I'm fine. Sometimes I think my injury gave me ADHD, and I can't really remember if I had symptoms of it before, but time made working around/through this easier.

I was diagnosed with Aspergers at the age of 8 and I've been in special education most of my school life.

It has had an impact on my social skills.
