I am an expecting mom and I have always come in high on these "nerd" tests and recently, as it became an official diagnosis, I took the Asperger's tests (online, not going to pay for a diagnosis as I'm already grown and don't need any follow up) and not surprisingly came in very high in the Asperger's / autistic spectrum symptoms. As a kid I was put in for testing at different times for autism, dyslexia, and ADD, but my mom never let them test me as she felt I was doing well enough without being diagnosed with anything.
Although I've always been unusual (and known it) I haven't had any major issues in life or rather, let's say, my life has not been fraught with more difficulties than anyone else's, so I figure, if I do have some "condition", who cares?
But I thought that there is a big chance that my kid will also be like me and then I'll really get to see what kind of issues I had as a kid. So I just thought I'd introduce myself before I started commenting / reading.
Thanks for being here!
