....Shorter fuse, social awkwardness, most likely others.
Around preschool age
Some doctors are quacks, but it's likely IMHO.
Dangerous pharmaceuticals up until 5 or 7 years of age
Perhaps something comedic


And hates hearing it called autism, seriously, major difference.

I was diagnosed a few years back but it turned out to be a false diagnosis. Getting 2 or 3 opinions can't hurt!

Age:15
What are your main symptoms:Talk to fast, Narrow range of interests, couldn't pick up social cues, and couldn't read body language. I've gotten a lot better at all of those except maybe talking fast. I still have a narrow range of interests, (have expanded a little bit more) but I can hold conversations about other peoples interests and subjects outside my range of interests.
What age were you diagnosed:7
What do you think of your diagnosis:At the time not much, looking back at it now, I think is was accurate.
What treatments have you been on:I'm very high functioning, to the point of you have to know me really well to notice my Aspergers traits. I have a shrink that I talk to for 30 minutes a month and take meds. I didn't really require much treatment after the first year of diagnosis as I made a lot of progress early after diagnosis and can function and interact with others fairly normally.
What are you looking to do as a career: I've considered being a Lawyer. But not really sure.

Age: 19
What are your main symptoms: Extremely literal, very narrow but intense interests, hypersensitivity to light, sounds, textures, and some tastes. I have a tendency to walk off mid-conversation when in a group of people. If the person I am talking to turns to talk to someone else, I walk away because I think they're done talking to me. So, yea, bad social cues. I also have dystonia said to be brought on my Aspergers. I have had quite a few catatonic episodes as well, but they stopped recently.
What age were you diagnosed: 11
What do you think of your diagnosis: I have no doubt that it is correct, having done quite a bit of research on it myself.
What treatments have you been on: I've been to social skills classes. I used to take 'Zoloft' but no longer take it. My social skills have gotten a lot better!
What are you looking to do as a career: Ironically, Psychology. I want to work with children with Autism, PTSD, and terminal illnesses like cancer.
