I'm autistic (got aspergers) and was just wondering if their was anyone like me or similar to me out there on the forums. :)

My psychiatrist said I might have aspergers.

I've met several Asperger's people on AW, so they are out there, yes. Hang around often enough (especially in the "chat" type threads) and you're bound to meet some of them. :)

(I'm not going to say their usernames, because I'm not sure how open they are about having Asperger's, so I'll respect their privacy until told otherwise. :))

Exactly -- it's not for me to name them, but several members have said they are on the spectrum. (And at least one mod has a family member on the spectrum) IIRC

You're in good company, because the forum welcomes everyone. Oh, and hello and pleased to meet you. :D

My hubby works with kids who have Asperger's - If that counts? :hi:

Two of my kids are in the spectrum. They're such smart, wonderful boys (and I'm not biased at all) :)

Whenever I do psychometric tests, the results always show that I "ought to have Asperger's" and I seem to have some of the hallmark characteristics and might be somewhere on the spectrum, I think, maybe toward the lower end ... but I'm not sure I really believe in it as an accurate diagnostic criterion anyway.

Gossip of the day: the incidence of Asperger's among college professors is higher than it is in the general population. ;)
