Anyone else on Earth have both of these besides me?

It has to be the ultimate double-whammy. Plus there's the frustrating reality that if I ever get over the dp/dr, the Asperger's will still be there, f---ing up relations between myself and others.

I can manage okay with message posts (I think). But only rarely have I dared to venture into the chatroom (where everybody's talking to each other in real time. That can be complicated).

Is this an experience anyone else can relate to?

Hi enigma

I would never venture into the chat room myself as I even have a hard time here on the message board carrying on a conversational style of writing. I hope people here won't think I am a snob or don't care about what they have to say because I do care very much what other people here think particularly when in response to something I may have posted. but i just find it difficult to organize my thoughts into a conversational style of writing. The dialectic process of communication is something I am not too good at as i feel I often tend to think more in images which is hard to translate into words.

I am not too familiar with aspergers other than it is some form autism. So I can't say much about that.

Good luck to you though

I have both. I'm self-diagnosed AS, though, and my shrink believes I have it, but she's not one to give a diagnosis because she doesn't have a PHD, but I'm positive I'm an aspie.

I've also noticed that aspies tend to get DP a lot easier than NTs.

Unlike many people with Aperger's, I don't think of having it as a disadvantage (even though it is in some cases), I just believed I'm wired differently, and there's nothing I can do about it, so I might as well embrace it. I don't see it as a disorder or a disease, I just see it as a different kind of person. That's all.

And yes, I hate chatrooms with almighty firey passion.

Maybe because we're more anxiety prone? (I've often thought about this).

Course being a chick, I guess you can probably get away with it a lot better than a guy can (practically all the married Aspergians [term I prefer] I've heard of are women.) If I was to trade the Asperger's in for a second head, I think I'd be 1000X more marriageable.

Fascinating to know that there is another, however. Thank you for sharing.

...get away with what? I don't get it...

The social awkwardness that goes along with AS.
I don't if that's true...I can't really see a difference when it comes to a guy being socially awkward and a girl being socially awkward.

*shrug* I think it's a matter of opinion.

Speaking for myself, I've never minded if a girl was socially awkward (and if some other guy did mind, that would strike me as being very picky). Maybe it is just my opinion, I dunno.

BTW, visited the site you provided the link to. Looks like the best Aspie site I've ever seen, so I went ahead and registered while I was there. Thanks for cluing me into that. Really appreciate it.

Anytime. I'll guess I'll be seeing you around there :)

Definitely stick to the forum would be my advice. I have only just plucked up the courage to post this (my second ever post in 9 months). i just went into the chatroom for the first time and no one was talking bout anything even vaguely related to DP. I just felt left out. They were all boys too!
