ADD (absolutely no "H", unless it stands for HYPOactive).
Tourette Syndrome (tics are mild)
Obsessive Compulsive Behaviors (presumably associated with TS).

I think you've got her pegged. She's only 17 and may grow up someday. Until then, write her off. I have snotty cousins myself, and I haven't seen them for as long as you've been alive. It's just not worth the hassle.

Hey Kingdom of Rats, thanks for that update. I've been a little out of circulation lately.

Diet doesn't do it for me except that losing weight decreases the area of skin susceptible to my kind of psoriasis. But my type is rare. Weight reduction may help those of us who have psoriatic arthritis, especially in weight bearing structures such as the spine, hips and knees. But as for specific ...

I know we're not supposed to have imagination but I like to make up odd-sounding names for my fictional characters. I have one right now that I repeat over and over in my head, and it's as funny now as it was the the moment I created it. I'm sure most NT's would find all this tiresome.

Over the counter hydrocortisone creams work for me. They don't totally get rid of the psoriasis, but control it well enough. Of course, you can't use these for long periods of time because they thin the skin. I have inverse psoriasis (in skin folds), and I find that keeping it clean and dry minimize...

I have a great long term memory, especially for subjects I'm interested in. My working memory--analogous to a computer's RAM--is horrendous. For instance, I can't do simple math in my head. As for the TV remote example--I can identify.

>>It is more appropriate for a young girl with AS, at least in elementary school, to get buy. That is because shyness, willingness to learn, being a "goody-two-shoes", and lack of interest in physical activities are acceptable for young girls.<< Boys also tend to "act out" more--which is just psycho...

Don't know if anyone has mentioned it, but Tony Attwood, in his Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome, claims that it is quite common for girls with AS to become interested in reading and writing fiction.

I used to write lots of fiction as a child and still do to this day.

Yes, that's what I was trying to say, Danielismyname--all the bolded text in your post. You say it much more clearly than I did.

But I will check out that link, DeepBlueLake. Interesting stuff. I guess you can tell this is a special interest of mine.

I've just skimmed the replies here, so please forgive any repetition. (What's that? We thrive on repetition?) Many years ago, I presented myself to a psychologist as a possible sociopath after reading a magazine article on the subject. I felt that I regarded others as objects and was worried that th...

Yes, to answer the OP's question. My job involves a lot of repetition, which also requires attention to detail. I'm in a scientific field, so it helps to have a good sense of logic and the ability to think outside the box. Like a previous poster, I can solve complex problems, but my solution is usua...

Ana, Augusten's name is a pen name. His real name is Christopher Robison (if I remember correctly).

The Robsion book is good.

Attwood's "Complete Guide..." is a must read.

KingdomofRats, I've always wondered about your name, and I always liked it. Interesting to know where it comes from.
