Ok, so I am 18 years old. I have been diagnosed with aspergers, but my mom and I both think that I am more autistic than aspergers. I have most all of the qualities of an aspie, but I also have a lot of autistic qualities. I get overstimulated really easily wich makes me freak out. I like to wear tighter clothing and have figured out it helps to wear tights under my looser jeans. I get so confused with the simplest of things, which can sometimes cause me to have a break down where nothing helps but crying. I HATE bright colors, especially red, and I hate the store Target because of the bright red counters and walls at the front, they are too stressfull for me. I always repeat myself tons of times and don't even realize it. And there is a lot more, too, that is definetly autistic in me. But I also have the social stuff of aspergers. So I am pretty much high functioning autistic then, I think. I just want to know there are others my age and older out there who fully understand what I'm going through, who are autistic. I want to talk to others who are autistic and my age so I don't feel so stupid and alone.

She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
