Another Aspie, the Nerd syndrome.

When my son was diagnosed with Autism, we looked into related conditions in the rest of the family and we finally realised why I had so much trouble relating to people all my life. I have Asperger syndrome.

So what aspie things do I do? I have poor social skills, I get obsessed with special interests, I'm clumsy, I take things very literally, I don't get non-verbal communication and I lack empathy.

It's not all bad, I'm pretty good at things I put my mind to. I'm very good at Math and Computers, which is probably why my occupation as a programmer is so suitable. I'm also very analytical, and good at solving problems.
