    Default Any ADULTS here with Aspergers?

    Who were diagnosed much later in life?

    Dd will soon be seeing a peas psyc for assessment and I've been doing a lot of research &.. I seem to tick all the boxes.

    I was looking over a trait list & there was a little light bulb moment when I though 'wow.. Maybe that's what my problem is' lol (long, not so funny history of anxiety)

    So yes, just curious, I heard it can run in family's but that was from a completely unreliable source.

    Not me, my younger brother. He was diagnosed when around 10 I think.

    Just wanted to say I don't believe it runs in the family. No-one else on either side of the family has it. Wonder where the person who told you that got it from??

    I don't know I didn't ask it was a passing comment when chatting about DD that's why I'm curious. I just saw the other thread about ADHD, maybe it's normal to question yourself/almost like find a reason/blame for your child's condition

    Not diagnosed, but yep I tick all the boxes too.

    My eldest is 2nd year uni studying psychology and she is certain that it applies to me. (She says her counsellor says she that even though she has always lived in Australia, she had similar problems to an immigrant child because she didn't learn all the little nuances at home.)

    Yes it can run in families.... I have read several books and it seems quite common for this to happen

    I know my mum and dad tried to find the 'link' just so they could go ''ah-ha! That explains it'' They realised pretty quickly though that that isn't how it happens.

    Also, there's no need for blame My brother is awesome because of who he is, Asperges included. I couldn't imagine him any different and I think he's perfect

    I Believe we are all on the spectrum somewhere, Conflicting reports about running in families, however I also have a friend who's husband, his brothers and her son are all diagnosed.

    I haven't been formally diagnosed but I tick all the boxes (have a psych degree and actually talked it over with one of my professors)

    I would also say that my dad and mum both have tendencies but no where near as strong as mine, and my siblings are all fine
