    - you never know when to talk in a group conversation but you notice everybody else does.

    - you search a doctor based on which one makes appointments over e-mails.

    You know you’re on the spectrum ifa short trip to the grocery store results in a 3 hour nap.

    When you order or buy a pizza, but it really bugs you that the topping is not evenly and symmetrically distributed!

    You get overwhelmed just by talking with one person in real life for longer than a few minutes.

    You worry about how much time you spend over-analyzing things, so you over-analyze it.

    You are horrified when the server tops off your coffee because now they have destroyed the correct ratio of coffee, sugar and creamer.

    When you hear people talk about selfish behaviour like it's perfectly normal and you just boil up and want to shout "NO THAT'S REALLY HORRIBLE, STOP IT!!!!"

    When hearing the use of power tools outside your house sounds and feels less like people doing work... and more like the arrival of the apocalypse.

    (I had a tree fall today - thankfully no property damage - but the power tools are making me want to bury my head in the ground!)

    You can visualize every part of a vehicle functioning as you drive, and can feel what parts are being stressed or are broken. But you can't read people or feel their pain.

    You know your an aspie when the doorbell rings and you and your husband both look at one another, nod your heads and stay silent until the person goes away.

    You suspect clothing tags were designed specifically as torture devices.

    (Why else would the world's softest pajamas come with a tag that feels like a dagger in my neck sewn into the seam so that if I try to remove it the whole seam comes apart!?!?!:mad:
