    Thought for the day: If someone was hypothetically diagnosed NT, would that be saying that all NT’s are the same? Just because two people have AS, it does not mean they have precisely the same symptoms or same personality. Yes, there are common traits for NT’s and common traits for Aspies, but we’re all people, and people are very different from each other.

    I was diagnosed over a year ago. I took several tests on line at & they all came out very positive. I’m like 95% on the spectrum..It was shocking after 46 years finally figuring out what I didn’t know..I was not completely sure at first but the more Aspies I saw the I more I saw exactly me..It took time to see a specialist & I was diagnosed.I was hurt but relieved somewhat..

    It affects people in different ways, I find social situations almost impossible and I have cartain orders for certain things but I don’t have many sensory difficulties.

    mm… false aspies most definitely exist. especially now, after ‘Adam’ ,’Mary and Max’ and other flicks that made it more widely-known and ‘cool’. Still, I think, that if a person thinks that he’s got AS, there is at least 60-70% probability that he’s got it. Declaring to be autistic in public, is not a very successful step towards being popular. Rather, it must be a last resort during the misunderstandings and awkward moments

    All I can say in defence of those who self diagnose is when I went to my doctor for help I was told there’s no help available on the NHS and I had to pay £300 to see the specialist privately for an assessment, which is pretty expensive. The psychiatrist spent a long time asking questions to rule out the many other things that can be mistaken for AS so they really should get assessed properly to be sure it isn’t something else.

  9. KimberlyMahurin says:

    Not everyone can afford diagnosis. Just because you don’t see them as AS does not mean you the that for sure. I know men who have it and paid 1400 dollars to get tested, but no one would think they were.

    So, if you saw me at the office you would say that I am not an Aspie? No matter how much torture, bullying, and harassment I’ve experienced? No matter how lonely and aliened I feel? No matter how much I spend stimming even though I’m in my forties? You and those like you will be the judge and jury just based on your personal belief that we are all like? How sad and harmful to people who may feel the pain of the syndrome and may be frightened away because they are not just like you.

  14. dyingofpoetry says:

    Are we as Aspies the final authority on who is or isn’t one of us? I think that is left to DOCTORS. It was one of them that diagnosed me. Many of us do a good job of keeping an NT mask on to get through the day. If I have to be in crowds or use eye contract, then I will do it, but it IS a conscious effort which causes anxiety and exhaustion, but I do it in order to be strong and independent.

  15. twelvestreets says:

    Your life must have been incredibly hard. Well done for hanging on in there and keeping going.

  16. DeviousLittleFox says:

    Agree with you man, I have it, and I CANNOT make eye contact, find it near impossible to make friends my own age, and cannot be in crowds of more than 2 people, even that daunts me!

  17. chummsdoe says:

    Who cares? You don’t see some “self claimed” AS people as having AS? Guess what? I have AS and I don’t think you have it. Isn’t it wonderful how its all perspective and it makes absolutly no difference AT ALL. Get over it.

  18. Freak7109 says:

    I find it really hard and uncomfortable making eye contact with people
    I love to organize my things, and a messy place stresses me out
    Going to parties and meeting new people stresses me out
    I have collected odd things in case I needed them (why do I have a box full of nuts/bolts? dunno)
    and I dont have AS

    I do know someone diagnosed with AS who can get up on a stage infront of people, who can make eyecontact, and doesnt tic all the boxes.

    But a generally good video :-)

    higgledy piggledy :D

  20. SepherStar says:

    I’m going to partially disagree.

    You can learn to make eye contact and cope in a public or crowded social situation and still have AS. Not everyone with it has social phobias, there are just certain social deficits. There are probably not many people with AS though who absolutely need or want to be the social center of everything all the time though.

    I also don’t think everyone with AS is so into organizing everything. They may just organize certain things.

  21. kommissarw says:

    Its a Spectrum, not a Either OR.

    The Aspie Traits are also not accross the board equal severity.

    You got a girlfriend for example (me too btw), thats uncommon for aspeis due to the social difficulties we have. But that dont mean you not an Aspie.

    It took some convincing by my Shrink that prior to a date, your GF asks you how she looks, she dont want the truth, she wants to hear she looks great.

    The diagnostic criteria is crap, it excludes without reason those with Schizophrenia.

  22. Doribi117 says:

    I agree with this video (I am an actual diagnosed Aspie) I personally love to organize things by Alphabetical order.

  23. StarWF2 says:

    Let them claim that they have “it”. What does it matter?

    It is simply a name for a type of person. Interesting from an academic POV, but otherwise irrelevant.

    Or would you disagree with this?

  24. Kakarot21591 says:

    True, the medical model does have its faults because of misdiagnoses, but it does help psychiatrists talk about how best to deal with a problem. Every psychotherapy has its good parts and bad parts. That’s why good psychologists today take an eclectic approach, taking the best out of all of the therapies available.

  25. Leekduck says:

    Aspergers is autism, At some point or other you are right as in, they try to be freindly and have friends, But dont actualy know how to (Although they think they do), This just leads to alot of fustration when people get annoyed at them or shout at them for doing, what they thought, was bieng nice this leads to alot of fustration.

    They honestly dont care about what people think of them however, most of the time they dont even know
