    Hello. I'm self-diagnosed, and perhaps incorrectly, but Asperger's (according to the DSM-IV, anyway) fits me very well.

    Hello, I have been absent for a long time, in part because of this problem which is getting worse all the time. I cannot deal with computers, internet, email, etc. It is information overload and too much to sift through. Just looking at it paralyzes me. In the case of email, everyone is...
