Do You As A Parent Think You Could Be On The Spectrum?

Do You As A Parent Think You Could Be On The Spectrum?

Since learning about Asperger's for my daughter I'm finding so often that I relate to so much of what I read. I've always just felt like an awkward person, even with people I'm close to like family.

I feel the same way... I was told I was bipolar... but the meds they gave me seemed to nto have "the right effect" so I haven't used meds. I am however ADHD. But I think my brother is Asperger now that I have learned all about it. It would explain a lot...

I used to think my son's diagnosis of ASD was completely from his dads side since his dad has asperges syndrome but the older my son has gotten I notice similarities between me and him.

I often wonder if I am on the spectrum. I remember asking crazy questions like my son, often repetitive ones, my anxiety heightens when things get thrown out of schedule, I use to flap my hands out of excitement. I get really nervous and anxious when I have a conversation with people. I had a hard time concentrating in school. I was bullied as a kid because I was not like the others. Not like this matters, but both my son and I are left-handed. How cool is that?
