    I want to thank everyone on here for helping me. I may not have made many posts, but the few I did have gotten me finally diagnosed.
    It’s validating to know that it’s not that I’m not trying to make friends, I’m not just antisocial. I spent a lot of time tortured by my mothers words, (although she doesn’t know it) her questioning why I don’t hang out with my friends spontaneously on the weekend and why talking over the phone is so difficult and why a loud room of people is triggering but a loud concert is fine.

    Of course it’s not an excuse, but now that I have a better look at my brain and how I work I can formulate a better plan to work at my social skills and improve.

    Thanks to all for supporting me and helping me find the tools to get where I am today. I’m happy to finally be able to change my status.

    I swear l deal with this everyday. I don't have a compulsive need to have a zillion friends, it's not that important to me. I want to read, write and stuff.

    Hope you don't beat yourself up about little to zero friends. You are just wired differently, but you are still okay. Anyways, welcome to the site.

    I think if the panic attacks stop I might understand what you are feeling today
