I am 67, so this wasn't even recognised when I was atschool, although my parents were called in and told that I "Didn't socialise." I was hopeless at games (dyspraxia).;
I loved running the A-level botany shelf and identifying plants, and have had other rather obsessional interests - identifying breeds of dog, identifying hymn tune names and my interest in rats. I have never had a date and had difficulties in relationships in both my nursing and my computer career. I find change very hard to cope with.
I have long suspected mild, high-functioning Asperger's and have recently come under the care of a psychiatrist, who feels this is quite likely.
Are there any others out there?
