Think you have Asperger's? (124)

I originally took the test because I was trying to figure out if it was possible if I had it or not. I thought I might've had it, but figure if the test said I didn't, I didn't. If it said I did, it was still possible I did... but not necessarily.

Luckily, I was homeschooled K-12, with the exception of 7th grade and college since then.

I don't fit in with society at all, other than when I'm trying to based on what I think a "normal person" would do. I don't see the point in talking most of the time, have been told by some that I seem emotionless, and have been called "extremely shy" by most people who know people.

I've lurked at a few Aspie forums, have read about situations Aspies have be in, have read the main symptom of AS, and I've related to most of them.

I could waste money (and time) going to a shrink to be diagnosed with hell-knows what, possibly be prescribed some kind of "medicine," or end up paying for something I may not even have... or just try and deal with it myself. I chose the latter.

I know I'm not what most people would define as "normal," and out of the usual AS symptoms I am missing the repetitive behaviors (as far as I can see) and the bad motor skills (although, I've never really played sports or anything), so it might not be AS. It may just be that due to how I was raised, I ended up with a lot of the symptoms of AS without actually having it. I've considered this.

But in the end, does it matter if it's one or the other? Either way, I'll just have to find some way to cope with it.
