    Like you i have gone from bad to even worse then when i started life and things have regressed rather then dicreased. And in my case i KNOW it comes from my crappy life and the constant 24 /7 bombardment of negative stress levels thru the roof. Same here my friend :rolleyes:

    Also you cant judge youre self just yet. With youre age you need to give it many years more until you can do that assumption .

    I believe it is mild, moderate, and severe (those three are still being used today), They used to use words like childhood schizophrenia and use to confuse autism with schizophrenia back in the day, it wasn't until recently in the 1980s when the term Autism started to pick up.

    Me to, I am not good at things especially tests, while I am the best at subjects such as art, music, history, and geography.

    If you want to know about my autism, I am a moderate autistic (level 2). I used to be very severe, thankfully that went away with some intervention, the severe autism went away at around age 8 for me.

    That is the way it went for me also. It started changing when I was 8. Lots of intervention and probably also a developmental leap. I never mastered talking all that well, but I was a lot more responsive and interactive and learned to read and write well. To the point where I became above average in that area. And good at history and geography and science (except chemistry and mathematics).

    I had similar results when I took an IQ test.
