    Hi everyone, my name is Kara. I was diagnosed with Asperger's when I was pretty young but I am still finding out new things about it every day. Just the other day I found out that a lack of imagination is common in people with ASD—I just thought everyone wasn't very creative, for some reason. I decided to join to find out more about myself, about my condition, and to meet new people like me. :)

    Welcome, Kara!

    Although a lack of imagination may be common in autistic people, I feel as though I have a surplus of imagination! My imagination is very vivid and feels like a movie in my head.

    I am not sure its one way or another. Or in other words it is not a defining feature of HFA. Some have described themselves the way you do and others say they are very imaginative.
