Aspergers and OCD

Yeah, according to a lot of research, a psychologist, and pretty much everyone I know, I have very mild cases of both OCD and Aspergers.  I've suspected something similar for a while, 'cause I know a decent amount about both of them, and this is stuff I have:


Everything has to be in a perfect schedule in a perfect order in a perfect way.  Every night I have to do the exact same things in the exact same order before I go to bed. My stuffed bunny has to be on the left, stuffed elephant on the right, and the blankie right down the middle of the elephant. Always.

A couple years ago, this was something that was really bothering me: whenever I encountered a semi-long word, I had to break it down into how many ways it could be divided into different sections and syllables, then sing-song say it each way, then count again and repeat it, and so on and so forth.  It really bothered me, 'cause it interfered with my reading.


I absolutely. Hate. Being touched.  Even by my own family--if one of them touches me, I cringe.  I can't help it.

I have an obsession with stuffed animals that most teenage girls have long given up.

I don't automatically pick up on social norms like most people--they have to be spelled out to me.

While I use it all the time, I have a very difficult time identifying sarcasm or when someone's making a joke.
