    I am also an aspie. I didn’t get diagnosed until age 10. I was misdiagnosed with ADD.

    You are a lovely person. You act in an innocent and childlike way and I think that is a lovely quality to have. I have never suffered with Aspergers or anything like that, but I used to behave in a similar way. I used to get quite a negative reaction from people. Which used to infuriate the hell out of me. I actually learned how to change the way I behave, but I know that it is probably not the same in your case. Nor should you have to. You really do have a wonderful gift for performing.

    @poopylungstuffing I think I have about 10. My dad gets most of them for me when he travels to other countries for work.

  4. poopylungstuffing says:

    how many do you have?
    I don’t recall saying that it’s silly, but my collection is larger than one could comfortably contain in a normal house.

  5. emily13RIOT says:

    Doll collecting isn’t silly! I love collecting old dolls. :)

    You’re welcome:*)

  7. mommytonut says:

    Thank you!

  8. poopylungstuffing says:

    I was on the ramp outside my back door..not the best place to shoot a video..my main reasoning was the natural light…but yeah…not the most undistracting place to do a “talking” video.
    My interests are fairly narrow and specific, but it is very hard for me to be as in-depth an expert on my interests as I would like to be.

  9. Amy2838 says:

    Squirrel! No, I’m kidding because I am the exact same way. I would have never been able to do the video out on the street like that. The train horn would have done me in WAY before the thunder. Aspergers and ADD. They play off each other in a very frustrating way. I think I *could* have some sort of brilliant hobby like some aspies, except my ADD won’t let me focus on any one thing for long enough to become an expert. So I’m just a semi-expert on 500 different random meaningless things.

  10. somatic77 says:

    Thank you for that. You are a beautiful person. I’m not good at typing on this new netbook, so i’ll leave it at that.

  11. LouiseIsGlitteryJunk says:

    you’re very pretty!
    i love your videos.

  12. Scrapheap71 says:

    WankPlanet is a site for lametards and kids.

    Intensitysquared, ZOMGAspies and Damnedvillage are the real deal!!

    Wait a minute…I was a clumsy oblivious third-grader, although I COULD dress myself. Tying my shoes is still a bitch. Determing Left from Right is a problem I’d rather delegate to someone else.

    Well, no, unfortunately I don’t suppose being on the receiving end of autism would be all that charming, especially if you live in the Zero Tolerance for Autism Zone,. Still, people like yourself make life for people like myself a lot more tolerable.

  14. hundredAnd1 says:

    Hmmm, I gotta try some toe-walking

  15. poopylungstuffing says:

    It’s not charming when you are a clumsy oblivious third grader who has a hard time dressing herself correctly or tying her shoes, and are getting constantly teased for it at school.. :*) It doesn’t feel charming anyhow.

  16. IamNotTheMoon says:

    I find it odd that a walking on one’s toes should be considered a symptom of borderline autism. I find toe-walking rather charming. I had a girlfriend who used to toe walk, but only when she was naked. But had she been fully clothed, I still would have found it charming. If YOU still toe walk, then you, are also charming. But since you are already charming, you would be even more charming. I don’t know it that makes life any easier for you, but…at least you know you have my support.

  17. poopylungstuffing says:

    I am actually acting more “normal” here than I often seem.

  18. poopylungstuffing says:

    Why would I bother?
    You don’t know me.

  19. futoku says:

    I only watched about 20 seconds of this and I can already tell that she is acting.

  20. movingzachb says:

    It all makes perfect sense. Live it be it.

  21. poopylungstuffing says:

    I think that;s a troll..I just never got around to deleting him.

  22. newn0z says:

    She does have AS ! Whats is yr problem?

  23. poopylungstuffing says:

    That sounds like it might be more of a tourettes thing maybe…Some aspies have issue with that, but I would not say that Asperger’s causes involuntary shrieking.
    You can look up the DSM-IV for Asperger’s and see for yourself.

  24. TexasJonasGirl says:

    Does aspergers cause involuntary shrieking? I have asked drs but they just say “mmmhm” like I’m crazy or something. I don’t really have any of the symptoms other than the shrieks but i do tend to have perspective problems not making turns sharp enough etc… Someone please HELP!!

  25. hop1pop says:

    I’m diagnosed with Aspergers and A.D.H.D and O.C.D and Depression!!
    so you can be diagnosed with any kind of illness, not one illness cancels eachother out. So I guess I am THE FUCKED QUARTET!
