My husband and son both have AS and I'm pretty sure if I went to the doc they would say I have it too. Being a woman, I think it is easier for me to hide my AS/traits so most people don't even know what is going on in my head at all. I have completely isolated myself, I have no friends but I prefer it that way. I love detail and organization but having 3 small children and a husband who doesn't help me do anything my house is in constant chaos. Because of this my OCD has gotten way out of control. I count EVERYTHING (even how many seconds it takes the faucet to run when I am getting water), I won't let anything end on a 3 or 6, I wash may hands probably 30 times a day, wash myself the same exact way every time. I constantly fear if I break routine something horrible will happen. I am driving myself CRAZY!! Is anyone else this nuts??
