Oh, and I was diagnosed as autistic (high-functioning) at the end of 2014. Which probably explains a lot

Huh. I'm curious but I don't want to pry.

How did that come about? And how old are you? These days that's the sort of thing which is usually identified during childhood in the states. Is it different in the UK?

Is the diagnosis a good thing for you?

Ask away; if I wasn't willing to talk about it with people I wouldn't have mentioned it. I decided as soon as I was diagnosed that it wasn't something I was going to hide, or feel embarrassed about.

Yeah, that's one thing with being older; I was born in 1967, and autism wasn't a thing back then. The consultant who diagnosed me said if I'd been born 20 years later alarm bells would have gone off straight away in infants school, but given the time...ehh, they just thought I was a weird kid, all I wanted to do at 3 was read books and be on my own making things (Lego, Airfix kits, whatever); I scored very high in everything academic but had no social skills whatsoever.

Definitely. Now I know why I am the way I am, and it's explained so much about my life to date. My whole life has basically been an unconscious coping mechanism, and at least now I know why things often seemed so hard or people so incomprehensible to me.

Welcome back Svart, Heresy has taken some hits in recent times, but the most dedicated remain. Glad to see another veteran returning.

I know how you feel. My own Aspergers makes people often baffling and barely understandable to me, even when i've been aware of it since childhood. It's good that you know now though, it makes things easier when you are aware of the reason things are different for you.

Glad to hear it. I know it's nothing to be embarrassed about but some people may be uncomfortable talking about it, so I wanted to be considerate.

And that makes sense. I have a family member who has Asperger's syndrome and is about 20 years old now. Also similarly high functioning and very academically able, but socially awkward. They picked up on the problem very early and were able to work on it and help cope.

Hopefully this brings you greater peace.

And as always, I'll be looking forward to your next stellar project.
