  3. Stevieray100 says:

    Oh good. I thought this whole time, I was the only one with Autism being able to be normal. Thank You.

  4. angelbaby4ever87 says:

    Well, it all depends on your definition of normal. I myself, had been told that I’m normal. Then at the age of 22, I was diagnosed with Asperger’s. I always had trouble making friends, difficulty in new situations, and couldn’t make eye contact, but other than that I was pretty much normal in the “normal” sense of the word. I didn’t flap my hands or rock back in forth that I remember and I do have a photographic memory another “symptom” of Asperger’s they say, but maybe. So count me in as normal

    What is normal? Not even people without disorders are ‘normal’, that is a setting on the dryer to me.

  6. updownart says:

    I think I have aspergas, I´m 47 and have lived a fairly normal life so it must be a mild form.

  7. updownart says:

    I think I may have aspergas, I´ve only just realised it at aged 47. I´ve lived a fairly normal life.

  8. CENTRINOaki says:

    If im “normal” depends on what you consider to be “normal”, just keep that in mind. Almost no-one with AS is normal, we all have a little “something” that always distinguish us from someone else, which may be why we aren’t that good with socializing. But i consider myself to be quite “normal”, even though my obsession is video games. Maybe you’r obsession is mechanics, like you said yourself, you are fond of it. But remember to not look down at someone else with AS just because you feel “normal”

    ive seen a positive video about autism???? some guy how can draw an entire city just by glanceing at it once from a helicopter????

    he end of the day its the regular people who need our research, experties, art and talents.
    There are so many people out there like us.
    So far the schools are not willing to work with some of my children (Aspergers, ADHD, Dyslexia, bla bla bla…)so i take them home early an tutor them myself. It is a blessing in disguise…they are doing great. They learn it all, “This is how most people like to do it, and this is how you like to do it…so whats the problem??? Who’s normal anyways??

  11. zeeshastock says:

    Our neighbours say, “you guys set a whole new meaning to the word normal” – “Your family is something like organized chaos”
    “You’re different in a different kind of a way”
    There is freedom in being who you are. Both my husband an I have this condition. Most of our children as well. I have taught my children that you become valnerable to teasing if you let it. You need to be proud of your abilities. At t

  12. ChristianJewel76 says:

    I have an AS diagnosis and consider myself quite normal. I do have a master’s degree though.

  13. BlacklistedL33t says:

    looks like you have gay

  14. Chrisguy42O says:

    I’m like you man, how were you diagnosed?

  15. bkerbis says:

    This is very good!

  16. temple26797 says:

    If you’re in a society that is majority (statistical normal) Aspergers, you will feel “normal.” Car afficiandos would likely be majority Aspergers.

    Since I didn’t know what was wrong with me for 60 years, I sought to be “normal” in the world’s neurotypical population. I did my BEST to become neurotypical. I didn’t fit, but no one would tell me why or how. Very frustrating.

    Finally I discovered I had Aspergers. Three years ago.

  17. AmiAminaru says:

    Great point w/ documentaries. Instead of showing the extreme ends of the spectrum show the majority. I self-relate to autism & AS. I’m not social, have been told I think literally, can’t function with out some kind of list or order. Logic is my saviour etc. Mocking oneself is opinion, and not everyone was brought up in an environment in which they learn how to deal with their symptoms. Such as myself. So don’t put yourself so high up w/o knowing the individual. Recall the condition is broad.

  18. ht7z says:

    My 13 year old daughter has AS and is very normal, which is a problem because she thinks that because the other kids are kinda different she worries that other people think she’s like them too.

  19. mervyish says:

    Scrolling down through all the comments and you sound like my 18 year old Aspie son lol. Why would any of you want to be like the rest of society! He was accused of being anti-social because he won’t join in with others and as he said “Me antisocial? They are the ones sitting in the park drinking and smoking dope!” Anyway good luck to ya!

  20. mervyish says:

    My 18 year old son has Asperger’s and when asked if there is a cure he answered why would he want to b cured? He doesn’t smoke/drink/do drugs/ is a model citizen and I always know exactly where he is and what he’s doing. He is “normal” enough to go to Uni though he commutes rather than living away from home. The best thing that ever happened to him was getting his condition recognised so he got the support and disabitity benefits available. From the prouud dad of an Aspie

  21. MrStinky123321 says:

    I have Asperger Syndrome, and I feel as though I am a normal person. Some people I know treat me differently just because I told them I have Aspergers. Love your accent :D

  22. KrakenZero says:

    You enjoy being normal? Actually I can’t think of a worse fate, kinda makes me lose the will to exist.

    For all intents and purposes I could be considered normal but its not worth getting the re-diagnosis because dss comes in handy sometimes. However, sometimes I let the customary social gestures slip because they feel so redundant and trying to be outwardly social is painful as hell while someone I’m with may be having fun I’m dying inside. Though I think thats because I’m introverted.

  23. DrFishNips says:

    I think the problems I do run into with autism is the fact people view me as completely normal until I start doing things which they find bizarre. That has them baffled I’ve asked a few people about this and they tell me that they don’t view me as autistic so it takes them by surprise when I do things like an autistic person. To each their own though I say. As long as I’m not harming anyone else by the way I do things who cares if I do them differently?

  24. DrFishNips says:

    I think theres a lot more to it than that brainfuzz. Only people who aren’t already blatantly different want to feel like a unique and beautiful snowflake. I’ve been unique my whole life but thats not always a good thing haha. Then again its all a matter of perspective. I don’t mind walking around in public with stains all over my clothes and some people find that juvenile or insane. In my opinion they’re the insane ones though because if I’m not entering a fashion contest then who gives a fuck?

  25. DrFishNips says:

    Its good stuff dexedrine isn’t it. Even the most monotonous tasks become fun and switching tasks actually pisses me off on it so its the mother of all ADD remedies. I get obsessed with various cultures too (like Canadian Eskimos or Siberians for example) but thats a fascination with the unknown. I’d say the same goes for Irish Americans who get obsessed with Irish culture. Irish people who wanna be American though I think its the fact 90% of what they watch on TV is American.
