[QUOTE=tomahawk2;19444572]Asperger's is a "get out of jail free" syndrome, like ADHD. It is just an excuse for weird antisocial kids, claiming they have asperger's so they don't have to be responsible for why they're afraid to talk to girls. Since Asperger's is treated symptomatically, it is almost impossible to tell whether you do have the syndrome or not. People like Ulillillia (google him) have Asperger's, not you.[/QUOTE] Uhhh.... no. I have a friend who was diagnosed with asperger's who is way more social than I am. I took the test and got 17, which, according to wikipedia, was about average for the control group.
hey, cheer up. your an aspi. its awesome, now you have a reason to tell ppl to leave you alone ^^ "yeah yeah i know bad spelling."

I think all these "syndromes" are bullshit. It's just the way a person is, we are all different. Not everyone likes being around humans. I am antisocial too, mostly because where I live all teens are either drunk or are gang kids. I don't find it fun or anything. I have 3 good friends, and that's it. And I understand op, I prefer doing stuff alone too, because if you want something done right, you must do it yourself.

[QUOTE=johanz;19444813]I think all these "syndromes" are bullshit.[/QUOTE] You are seriously mistaken, aspergers is not just some little issue about not wanting to socialize . People like myself with aspergers are [b]not able[/b] to socialize with others very well, among other things.
I think I will ask my parents about it on skype or whatever and see if they can ask the doctors surgery that I go to. Maybe I can get tested one weekend.

[QUOTE=Gprimeisback;19444840]Where were you diagnosed?[/QUOTE] I really can't remember what the place was, however there was several people there who specialize in mental health problems. I went there twice for about 2 hours each time, at the end I was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome. There is however no real treatment for it, you just got to live with it as best as you can.

[QUOTE=Dr Magnusson;19444994]Congratulations, you don't have aspergers![/QUOTE] You realise the last 4 answers you gave actually would indicate aspergers rather than argue against a diagnosis? Or rather would be caused by aspergers rather than them being the cause of the problems.
Why exactly wouldn't you get tested for Asperger's Syndrome?

I think I might have this and if anyone mocks it, they can go fuck them selves.
[QUOTE=Dr Magnusson;19445077]You're an antisocial nerd, man the fuck up and stop blaming a disorder you don't have.[/QUOTE] I think you missed the part when I said I was serious about getting tested, oh and the bit where I said that I wouldn't claim to have aspergers until medically diagnosed. Unless you are one of the idiots who think aspergers and ADHD etc don't exist. In which case I challenge you to meet someone with those conditions, I met a kid with ADHD and from then on I was 100% sure that it was a real condition, and just by the fact that it is medically recognised, I also believe aspergers exists. If I get tested and I prove positive I will come back here and rub your face in the fact that you were wrong and made a stupid generalisation.

I'm not saying ADHD or Aspergers doesn't exist, I'm just saying that the more likely explanation for you lack of social skills stems from lack of social interaction, not a disorder.
Can you really get real results by answering some questions? How do doctors diagnose?
I once took an online test just out of interest, despite never even considering that I have aspergers. Apparently I'm normal as fuck, so cool shit. Way too many people on the internet seem to claim to have aspergers, it's pretty much like a bandwagon now. Unless the internet is the only safe place for the humble race of aspergians. That said, if you actually do think you have aspergers and feel you should get tested, I don't see why not. It'll either confirm your suspicions or, worst case scenario, it'll show that you're antisocial or introverted or some bullshit.
Aspergers is just a way for people to give up responsibility for a social life. And it's a great excuse if something isn't going well in your life. In short: Socialize, communicate, GO OUTSIDE.

It would be illogical to simply say that I don't have it. It is logical to not assume either way which is what I'm doing, but obviously I believe that me having is is a reasonable possibility. Does your belief that I don't have aspergers mean I don't have it?
Well 5 out of those 6 things fits me. Does that mean I have Aspergers? :aaa: And I got 24 in the test. I had trouble answering some questions though, because there were no middleground between yes and no.
dont sweat the assburgers man, just wipe them out in the shower

I have some form of autistic disorder too, probably aspergers I dunno but one of the giveaways is that I subconsciously move my arms during conversation, especially with those I don't know well. Also I don't pick up on any body language or anything like that but unlike you, I can make myself do group work and do pretty well at it using my hyper focus (lol!). Group work is actually a pretty essential thing in a computer science degree (I'm studying the same) despite what you think, you need to be able to co-ordinate with other people in order to work and operate in the real world like if you wanted to work in a IT/Computer Science based profession when you leave there is no way you are gonna be stuck on your own writing a massive program on your own, it is done in teams. Teamwork can actually make things a whole lot easier.
Go get tested, look up your local doctors office or phyciatrists in the phone book, shouldn't be that hard.
I have suspected asburgers, but we've been waiting for a digonsis since I was 10 (I'm 15 now). Apparently it's harder to diagnose when your older.
