introducing myself

  1. S

    New Here and Looking for Connections!

    Hi! I'm new here and want to meet other autistic people and hopefully make some friends. I don't really know anyone else who is autistic, and I'd like to change that! I'm 30 year old woman newly diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and I live in Illinois. I'm a librarian by training, but in...
  2. fern_77


    hi. my name is Fern and my pronouns are they/them. i'm seventeen. i'm a nonbinary trans person and a greyromantic ambiamorous lesbian (if you are unsure what any of those terms mean, feel free to ask me and i'll explain them ^w^). i was diagnosed with adhd when i was eight and the therapists...
  3. Leago

    Hey folks (:

    Hey! I go by Leago. I’m a teenager and got diagnosed with autism a while ago. I’m excited to be here and discuss things with you fellow Aspies! One of the beliefs I hold about my diagnosis is that it is not a disability. Controversial, I know, but I don’t want to keep being told that I am less...
  4. morax


    hello :) i use any name that starts with m, mostly "min" but i enjoy being called morax, meinki, or minerva as well. i do not use pronouns (im serious, not making fun of anyone), but they/them is ok if not using pronouns is difficult for you. i am 16, and i don't have an official asd diagnosis...
  5. DK’s_Ghost

    Not Remotely Shy - and I’m moving in.

    Hey everyone, I’m a bit of a forum addict and I’ve been hanging around elsewhere for years (not Reddit, though - that place is stressful). Having spent a little time here a few months ago, I decided I like you all (collectively) and that this is the most low-stress forum sites I’ve ever spent...
  6. Dionysus

    It's nice to meet you all.

    I'm Dionysus, but you can call me Dion. I'm a young adult (he/them) and my special interests are Voltron (all shows, except Voltron: The Third Dimension) and fun facts. I can happily say I know at least one thing about everything, so I'm a Jack of all trades. I draw and write, and I'm trying to...

    G'day there

    This is my first ever Forum that i created an account on and the idea that i might use this site still seems pretty alien to me. My whole life i've always been the odd one out, I mean I've never had no friends but I've never really cared for any of them... they were more like a necessity in...
  8. GeoAspieBabe


    Hi, I'm new to the site. I'm a woman with Asperger's. I live in the US. My interests include science, history, and geography. Feel free to ask me about any of these topics. I left another autism support site because I was tired of hearing about politics and people drawing me into political...
  9. Cailan Tangaroa


    I feel incredibly shy right now, although it’s a forum and I’m not personally meeting any of you. I have always felt like I didn’t belong anywhere. I am waiting for an official diagnosis, one friend of my mom who is a psychiatrist actually told us I was most likely on the spectrum but I guess...
  10. oike27


    My name is Ogechi and I was diagnosed with ASD pretty early after not being able to talk for five years. I love cooking, baking, writing fanfiction, reading, singing, coding, designing, fairy tales/folklore, and history. I've been questioning my sexuality for a few years now, and I would like...
  11. G

    Hello everyone.

    Hello there, I received word of this forum from another site and figured I would set up my account here. I do have plans for a thread later today, because today is a noteworthy date, but my activity on here will probably be slow for the time being. I'm a Catholic, having reverted to the Faith...
  12. ThatAlexDude


    Alex is the name, and as an Autist myself, what better way to make new loving, caring, and respecting pals than joining on this wonderful site?
  13. qw0


    basically, i think i have hfa. i stim (nail biting, pacing, rocking back and forth, repeating words/phrases i think are comforting/funny, etc) i have very poor execution dysfunction, trouble picking up social cues and im very socially awkward. i was once the "gifted child", but high school shows...

    New here

    Hello, I am new here, in addition this is my first time participating in an online forum. My goal is to make friends.
  16. I

    Um, Hello ?!

    I think, this is my first thread ever anywhere, so yeah. Kinda scared of this new situation... Anyways, I am here to introduce myself. I am a 17 y/o from Germany and only self-diagnosed (Probably Atypical Autism, maybe Aspergers). I only discovered that I may be on the spectrum a few months ago...
  17. Mars26


    Hello, I am 20 years old guy with asperger syndrome. I was diagnosed when I was in preschool. My parents are supportive but my father still doesn't accept that I have asperger. He constantly comparing me to people the same age as me. I also have supportive older sister. I had few close friends...

    New, figuring it out

    Hi all, I just joined, Mikey here. 21y.o grad student, just got diagnosed this past summer. Honestly, I've been avoiding any asd community stuff since the diagnosis but I figured I can't find the answers on my own. Anyone in the NYC/North NJ area?
  19. Emma03

    Introducing Me

    Hello, my name is Emma. I am 15 years old. I am currently in my freshman year of high school. I highly suspect that I am on the autism spectrum, but my parents are not agreeing to get me evaluated. As I do not think a diagnosis at this time will have a direct effect on my schooling, I have...
  20. TiaDefiant

    The new kid

    I decided to join as I haven't found many places I can talk about my Asperger's in a safe place. Most of the places I've seen are for parents of autistic kids, and I find those places a bit ableist as I get people correcting my experiences when they don't understand those experiences personally...
