    To the website and to this group. I am a girl who just turned 25. I have been diagnosed with high-functioning Asperger's Syndrome since the age of about 8 years old. I saw this group and was curious to join and see what some other Aspies are into. I have a few friends who have Asperger's, but none of us really have much in common. What are the things you all are most obsessed with?For me, it's...

    Hello, I'm new.  I'm a twenty one year old male who was diagnosed with aspergers at thirteen.  My interests are primarily American politics and history, and I'm also a huge horror and science fiction nerd. My ultimate if nigh impossible dream is to be a two term president.  I'm also GhostlyLydia's boyfriend.

    Hello, I'm new to the group and to this website, Daily Strength. I am 19 yrs old and gave yet to recieve a federally accepted diagnosis--( I have been labeled the term by a hospital, counselors, therapists, interviewers and teachers, but not by a major institution that the government will acknowledge)-- but it's clear that I'm struggling with it, and I'm starting to feel worthless. Im having...

    Hello Everyone,I'm new to the group here and also to Daily Strength. I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, 10 yrs ago. Of course I do know that the DSM V has since erradicated that diagnosis.

I hope everyone's doing good...

    Feeling isolated

    My dad has Aspergers and he struggles with it every day. My Grandmother, Uncle and my cousin also have Aspergers as well. I am worried I may have Aspergers,  I was screened once by my dad's therapist when I was 6 but I don't feel that counts. I have expressed my desire to be tested in the sixth grade andt bring it up periodically ever so often the past three years to my mom. She acts like it's...

    Alone

    I am an American, and have just started grad school in Hungary. I am so lonely right now, it hurts. My Asperger's always isolates me, and I would just like a friend. I throw a "smiling" mask on when in public, but I am crying myself to sleep every night. I am so tired of feeling like a freak (I am not saying that anyone else with asperger's is a freak, but that is how I am feeling about myself...

    Confused & Frustrated!

    I'm 25 years old and I have a very mild case of Asperger's. I live with my grandmother in the Twin Cities in Minnesota because I'm currently attending college. I don't hold a job because I've never had the need to work and I also chose to focus on my studies. I'm very emotionally sensitive, I don't respond well to other people's anger even if it's justified, I'm very sensitive to tone of voice,...

    I'm 30 years old and was just diagnosed with aspergers.  Married but still very lonely.  Husband is very understanding and socially awkward as well.  He is currently out with a group of people he has never met to play a board game.  I don't understand the enjoyment in putting yourself in such a situation, it boggles my mind.  I feel jealous and in pain.So with that, I sit here alone knowing...

    I think I might have aspergers

    im very convinced that I might have aspergers. I've read over the symptoms and I have many of them. I've taken an online screening and the score I got said I'm likely suffering from autism or aspergers.

    Hi... I'm new here. And new to Aspergers. I haven't been actually diagnosed with it, but my family and I are pretty convinced that it's what troubles me. I read that for an adult, and especially a woman, getting a diagnosis is awfully hard. I thought it would be a relief to find out something that explains what's wrong with me. But lately I feel terrible about it. It's made me realize things in...
