I grew up a very odd child, was adopted close to birth with little family history known. Was obsessed with trains, both model and real ones since I was just a toddler. I struggled with math in school, despite my parents being told I had a very high IQ. I was bullied, beat up on an almost daily basis in public school thru my middle and high school years, yet still I went undiagnosed. I switched to a pvt church school in my 11th grade year and graduated from there. After schooling I bounced from job to job, what I would later call a meltdown ended most of my jobs. I met my future wife online and we married a year or so later. I struggled with our relationship for several years, lots of violent outbursts and fighting(meltdowns). We sought help from a therapist, who is licensed to diagnose ASD disorders. Under the DSM 4, I was given the Asperger Syndrome dx, once it upgraded to the 5th edition of the DSM, she classed me as ASD level 1 but told me I can place down nearly to a level 2 on my bad days. After my dx and some time to accept it. I started reading and learning how to better cope. I now use a weighted blanket year round so I can sleep thru the night instead of waking up almost every hour. A good solid 6-8 hours sleep is very important to me being able to make it thru the day. I wear a bracelet that says that I am autistic after a nearly 10 min shut down in a store were I couldn't talk and barely could move. My wife now knows the signs that I am nearing my limit and can help me out of the situation or get me someplace to calm down. My violent meltdowns are mostly a thing of the past. I now know when to walk away and while I will have a mini meltdown, they do not turn violent with objects being thrown or others being hit. I accept myself for who I am, instead of being disgusted at the misfit that I was. Mike
 
I was diagnosed with level 2 autism. I suffer the most from social impairments, sensory issues, executive functioning problems. My I'm the only Aspie in my family, we don't really get along very well. I need my space from them as they are toxic to me most of the time. I finnished my GED, then started community college after that. I worker as a framer and contractor. I live alone in my trailer, the trailer is a 1979 Avon that I'm currently renovating. I'm not sure what else to say... I also have a dog named Emily that lives with me so I guess I'm not totally alone. LOL
