I'm certain I have this

This forum is absolutely dead, so I figured I would just make a post here, I've never been formally diagnosed, but had this my whole life (currently 20)... but I have severely restricted interests, some asociality, a rich inner fantasy life (i.e. I have friends but I prefer socialize through imagination), and occasional self-stimming behaviours.

My son is older than most of the kids you write about. He's lived on his own for about 6 years, ...
