I'm trying to figure out how to approach this. I think I might be aspie, but am not in a position for testing, etc. I've searched the web ... a significant subset of the commonly-listed factors fit me to a "T", others are way off. Don't know what to do. Don't know whether I'd rather be an aspie or just a jerk, which is how I feel a lot. Don't know what having a label might do for me, my family, or my friends. There's so much out there for parents, but not for mature adults ... fyi, I'm 40+, and always was the weird, egotistical one, even back before ordinary mortals had heard the words "autism" or "asperger". God saved my life by sending me a husband very like myself ... he's the only person I've met who gets my jokes ... and two lovely children, one of whom might be aspie, too. Would love to talk with another adult who knows it from the inside out. Thanks.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
