Sometime ago my wife came across a magazine article concerning children & autism. The more she read, the more she realized the symptoms seemed to be describing me.
Of course I was certain I couldn’t be autistic, but then the very first symptom she pointed out was difficulty making eye contact.
Hey wait a minute, I thought. Actually, I have that problem…and I’ve had it my entire life.
I’ve never known why.
So, I started my own investigation via online research.
I even took a few online psychological tests, all of which pointed to a strong possibility/likelihood that I was indeed, an aspie.
Then, after spending a few years as a self-diagnosed aspie, I finally, at the age of 59, was formally diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome .i
Fifty-nine years. Unaware there was a name for this.
