    Hi

    I don't really know what to put here but I've had asperger's my whole life more or less, it I'd diagnosed as mild but that's horse crap to me because all it did was create more problems so I just use asperger's, more problems as, parents thought I would be functioning fine but nope not really, I finished high school last year. Currently on a gap year, oh I'm 18, currently trying to workout my life and what I want do/become. For me I've always been able to fake talking to people but keeping those friends proves to be harder then it looks aye.

    That is all, this is what came to mind at the moment so it's just a mumbled mess but hey I'm a messy person.

    Welcome Bigjay!
    I know what you're saying. I'm 62 and lived my life with Asperger's but didn't know it until I was in
    my 50's.
    Just knew I was weird and highly anxious. Not social either.

    New Zealand was where I always wanted to live!
    Never achieved that goal. But, I must say you are in a beautiful country. :rolleyes:
