Greetings!:p

I am a self-diagnosed teen residing in Canada. I've struggled with an restrictive eating disorder in the past and currently am learning to manage my anxiety in absence of those negative behaviors. I think both of these could have a direct correlation to the struggles I've endured as an Aspie/HFA individual without professional support. My special interests are primarily regarding media analysis (film and video game essays on YouTube can captivate me for hours!) & a fictional world I created when I was ten. I am also incredibly passionate about social justice activism and creative endeavors such as digital art and writing. My hope is that I can find a sense of community and solidarity with other people who have been/are going through similar experiences as I transition into adulthood undiagnosed and maybe make some friends along the way! <3

Welcome to the Forums! I hope you make new friends and enjoy your stay in the process! :)

I too am from Canada and am Self Diagnosed (Officially I have a Cognitive Delay, though that doesn't mean a whole lot to me, so PDD-NOS I find fits a little better despite it virtually being non-existent since That and Aspergers have now been assimilated into Level 1 Autism as per the DSM-V)

I love art as well! I'm more drawn to the actual process of creating, but I desperately want to acquire knowledge regarding the historical aspects :)

Hello fellow Canadian :) I think that the choice to abolish certain terms such as Aspergers and PDD-NOS in a clinical setting is good progress for making it more common knowledge of the spectrum itself but it's sort of tricky when so many people identify closely with these. I hope you can make peace with it as you continue your own journey <3

try a biography of Leonardo da Vinci or Toulouse-Lautrec I think with the last artist you will really only know about his personal problems
