Teen Chat Comment from Sophia

name = Sophia
Aspies_Teen_Chat_comments = Hi, I'm sixteen and I just sorta stumbled onto this site. I didn't really ever think this could exist, but I guess I just wanted to know if there are really other people like me. Until a couple of years ago, I always just assumed I was just awkward or messed up somehow, 'til I found a list of criteria for asperger's online and they almost all fit me. I asked my mom, and she explained that I had been diagnosed as a kid, but they didn't tell me -- still not sure why. I'm what doctors call borderline/  high functioning, which I guess means I can hide it fairly well, but it's still definitely there. So, anyway, my interests are writing, books, film, ethics, politics/ social justice, psychology (obviously), and history. I do karate and academic team, so I can knock you out while reciting random facts. I like to think I'm a pretty good writer, particularly poetry. In general, I display above-average capacities in logical reasoning, vocabulary, etc, (Can I talk like a psychologist here and have no one think it's weird?) but I struggle with all the usual aspie stuff: social interaction, eye contact, reading cues, physical contact, and the like. I'm not really sure how this works but if you want to talk, hit me up!

  1. Hi sophia.I think I have AS but never checked. I like running and reading the "ocassional" book. I guess I am curious about psychology even though I never researched about it. Contact me at maikoo12@gmail.com if want to talk.
