Dude, applying the symptoms to yourself is not an indication you have aspergers. It's a cry for help. I would practically have to write an essay about my life's experiences, but I think my posting history says a lot about this. Long story short, when I sought after answers, I got a generic one like "your depressed". From a licensed psychologist no less. MY awkwardness didn't come from severe disabilities. It didn't come willfully. It sure as hell didn't come from unintelligent design. It was from going to school, being smartened up, having a few of life's kicks in the rear teaching me some life lessons, and then realizing that in the presence of stupid people? Your going to ****ing HATE life. Unfortunately, when one animal appears differently from a pack of others, it's viewed as sick. Then it's separated. But that sickness is not necessarily a downgrade. So, as the TB OT motto goes, "buck up and deal with life. Someone has it worse. Now back to work!"
