Looks like another unlikable person is ready to self-diagnose himself with Aspergers to scapegoat his rotten personality.

And the beat goes on.

I knew I had depression when I lady came to me school and listed all the symptoms. Then I was diagnosed it by a Phyc. Could be right.

Oh yes. By my estimates around 90% of people who say they have Asperger Syndrome online are faking it.

What are your estimates for people who are schizotypal?

And another judgmental asshole makes his terrible personality obvious.

I have lived with someone who has Aspergers. I work with someone who has Aspergers. And I am absolutely offended by the way others treat these people.

In regards to my coworker, so far, people have referred to her as inbred, and have painted her as a bad person for her shortcomings at work. The simple fact is she is not as functional, end of story, and there's nothing wrong with it. That's just how she is. But yet people are terrible to her.

Utah has the highest autism rate in the country the last time I checked, and what is so insulting is that people here are absolutely nonaccepting of it, plus they absolutely refuse to understand. I hate society in Utah in general, and one of the big reasons why is how almost everyone else who isn't personally affected by a mental problem chastises someone who is because the affected person is not as functional as they are. The other big reason is the LDS church and how they probably contribute to the autism statistic because of their mentally harmful systematic brainwashing, which I personally have gone through myself.

A little acceptance goes a long ways.

Lol, I should have realized I'd get responses like this. I'll have you know I am a likeable person, I am just terrified of social encounters, have trouble making eye contact, etc. I've actually been told by a lot of people that they don't think I'm awkward, which means that while I'm talking to a person, nervous as fuck, I'm putting up a good act ^-^

But seriously, my habits match up with a lot of the symptoms. I thought it was interesting, but no, I'm not trying to "scapegoat my rotten personality".

Take a pill for it. If you might have IPD and RLS too take pills for those as well!

i am some kind of socially awkward guy, and in the past i was diagnosed with a light form of Asperger, but it isn't a problem anymore, but some years ago i had the tendency to get depressed and isolated, but then i have become more social and no more depressed (mostly because i wasn't good at school and mates continued to call me retard), after i failed exams i strangely awaked myself and i decided to retry, i began to study and stuff like that and i passed, now i tend to be more happy and social... probably because i take good votes and this makes me happy and more social because im not depressed.
TL DR
got depressed and antisocial,diagnosed with aspi, failed exams , awaken myself, retried and passed, became more happy and social

But really dude Aspergers is a serious mental disability and I don't think it's something doctorseasily diagnose, so you shouldn't really go around saying you think you have Aspergers because you're socially awkward. It sounds pretty ignorant. My girlfriend's brother has aspergers and it causes obstacles which he has to overcome everyday of this life.

No, you just heard somewhere that aspergers people get a free pass in day-to-day life and you're using some vague traits to get yourself such a pass because you're too much of a fuckup to improve yourself.

If you truly believe that you could be suffering from Asperger's Syndrome, I would recommend you visit a psychiatrist or professional in child/teen therapy - and also consider the possibility of receiving treatment for the condition. More than likely, you will be issued selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) which is primarily used to combat demotivation and depression, but can also help with social skills; although, there are no specific drugs attributed to Asperger's Syndrome due to the high variability of symptoms from person to person.

However, to self-diagnose yourself with a disorder is ignorant and foolish. Judging by the short description of your indicators, I would say that you lack the major effects common in AS cases. These include, but are not limited to:

1) The inability to recognize subtle speech cues such as pitch, tone, and accent (what I call "sarcasm deafness").
2) Difficulty or inability to feel or understand empathy.
3) Prone to one-sided conversations.
4) Partially or entirely "blind" to non-verbal communication - specifically body language.
5) Delayed motor skills/development (in severe cases).

Asperger's Syndrome is not synonymous with Depression or Anxiety disorders - though these may occur simultaneously. It is absolutely not the "fear of social interaction". Quite simply, it is the psychological inhibition of engaging in it. Your language does not indicate to me that you suffer from anything remotely close to AS; but again, you should see a professional regarding this issue before diagnosing yourself based on a wikipedia article.

I don't think you're an asshole for ripping on him (even though I should), I think you're an asshole for acting like you know shit about him or his life.

Don't worry. Over 20% of the population meet the diagnostic criteria for the autism spectrum.
