Hi all. I apologise if you’re a follower and received several different versions of this post. It’s the first time I’ve tried to add an image and it took me a few attempts to work it out.
For all of those who aren’t professionally diagnosed with aspergers but are wondering if they are, there is a good quiz floating around on the internet. It’s obviously not something that can be compared to a real professional diagnosis, but it may give you an idea of if it might be worth asking for a referral to be tested.
It can be found at: http://www.rdos.net/eng/Aspie-quiz.php
This is my result:
Your neurodiverse (Aspie) score: 163 of 200
Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 63 of 200
You are very likely neurodiverse (Aspie)
I think my results are probably quite normal for a female on the spectrum. I have a spike on the neurotypical side for socialising and attachments. I genuinely love being around people – sometimes. And when it comes to people in my life that I am attached to, I have good attachments with them.
A lot of women with aspergers seem to be very similar. We have the interest in being around other people, we just need frequent breaks and alone time to recover. And we form close bonds with those that we allow into our personal worlds.
Anyway, this is only a short post tonight. I’m very proud of the fact that I’ve made it to a month of blogging and have achieved my goal of a post a day. I’ve had a great day at work, followed by a glorious five hour nap this afternoon while John looked after the girls. I also got back some of the results of the scans I had a few days ago. One interesting finding is that I have an unhealed very old fracture in my hand. It’s interesting because it’s the one thing that doesn’t hurt. And I also have unusual nerves in my wrist – one of my nerves if bifurcated (divided). It doesn’t mean anything bad, but it’s just uncommon (1-3% of people). It just may cause problems if I end up needing surgery in it.
Unfortunately the other scans I had done weren’t uploaded online so I’ll have to wait until I can see the specialists for the results. I hate waiting for results of things, but I guess I’ll have to be patient.
Thank you to my readers who have stuck around for a whole month of my waffling.
