I'm working on a new Asperger's Syndrome community. I wanted to get a forum going and there doesn't seem to be any in depth aspie forums so I'm like why not? Anyways, I'll tell you the name of it right after I grab the domains for it, just in case people try to take it lol.

Anyways, who'd be up for joining it and helping it get going and all? I'm thinking of asking some of the asperger organizations around my city to pass the word along for it and see what kind of notice it gets that way. Any ideas on that?

Personally I think Asperger's is currently being over diagnosed in people who really don't have it. Or it's at least now common enough to be considered normal, but it's still most likely the latter. The blame there mainly goes to the doctor's who aren't really doing their jobs anymore. Also the medication ad's always focus only on the common symptoms that any normal person would have.

Autism, bipolar mania and depression are all majorly over diagnosed I think and I am tired of it. Everyone is a bit stupid at times, everyone is a bit angry at times and everyone is a bit sad at times. That shouldn't be cause enough to say "Oh, you got this disease/condition or this one. Oh here's a pill for it as well."

I somewhat agree with you Fire2box. I'm not going to try and explain it as I'm horrible at it, but I do think it's a legitimate diagnosis. I was diagnosed in high school, 11th grade to be exact. The most that stands out to me is me not really being able to understand social cues and all that well, which is true, I can't. It's very hard for me to pick up on when people are upset with me or something. It might or might not be related to Asperger's Syndrome, but just my opinion. I know it's being to common now and they're probably just saying someone has it even if they don't.

But aside from that, it's an open niche and I want to try my luck at it and see what I can do with it.

I was diagnosed at a young age. Before it became the 'it' diagnosis. And I try my hardest to disassociate it with autism, since many people still don't understand the spectrum. Either way, I keep it to myself, or where I can be anonymous. Still, I'm not sure what I would do in a place like that forum. I may check around about it though.

I was diagnosed when I was probably 4, because I was a huge asshole child with no friends, who was unable to socialize or do socially acceptable things. I still hate my parents for making my early school life such massive shit.

I'm working on a new Asperger's Syndrome community.

For the first time in a year I can comment on this topic without having to not mention an ongoing survey that included a question on it!

As it turns out, 5% of AB/DLs report having been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome.

I'll be running some numbers to look for a causal relationship, and to see if Aspie AB/DLs are that much different. Unfortunately, there is a lot of data to analyze, so it might take a while.

I think posting your community here in the open would be a bad idea. Odds are this thread would rocket up to being the first hit on google which would probably not be good for you.

I've never thought of that -_-. Stupid me. So, I'm guessing that this was a good niche then.

Isn't there a site for Aspergers already called Wrong Planet.com?
I should add there was a poll topic there about fetishes and four were listed. Somebody replied saying "you forgot to mention diapers."

WrongPlanet is for all types of Autism disorders if I recall correctly. This one is just about Asperger's and Technology.

Well, if you believe what you read online... about a tenth of the internet will be wanting to join your community. You should have a huge userbase.

I think that was me. I didn't know you were a member there too, who are you there?

I was diagnosed in 1997, back then AS was still something new in the USA and in the DSM and not many people knew about it but today more people do and more doctors. But back in the 1980's doctors thought I was autistic. They were seeing the AS traits and AS is on the autism spectrum. There are still people today who have never heard of it and still doctors who are clueless about it. I would say those are most likely the older ones because that word wasn't around when they went to school to be a doctor.

5 percent is a small number. I don't know if it's being over diagnosed or not or it just seems like it is because it stands out more. I believe it's under diagnosed in adults though because most doctors and specialists only do kids and it's harder for adults to get diagnosed and the fact they don't always have the money for the testing and diagnoses. So many are left undiagnosed. Some even feel gypped because they are finding out they have it but it wasn't known then they were children so it might have made a big difference for them growing up if it was known they had it. They would have been understood more and gotten the help they needed than struggling and people assuming they are lazy or being a smart ass or being a jerk, thinking they are rude, etc. I made this observation being in the autism community and seeing posts made by them and how hard they are struggling to find a doctor that does AS and seeing a website showing a list of doctors from each state and city that specializes in it for adults. I think the reason why more kids are being diagnosed is because more people are aware of it and more doctors do kids with it by specializing it and doing the diagnoses. I don't know if it's being over diagnosed. I don't hear much about it except online because the internet brings things together. I see parents coming to wrongplanet saying their child has it or is newly diagnosed or are suspecting their kid has it. And the fact aspies are everywhere so to say it's over diagnosed or not real just because it seems like lot of people have it, we'll mind as well say it about other disabilities people say they have. Lot of people have disabilities and one of my online friends said she learned in her class that every 1 in 4 Americans has some sort of mental illness.
Heck I hear lot of people saying they have dyslexia so does that mean it's over diagnosed or not real? Seemed like lot of kids in my high school had it and not all of them were in special ed so I figured that's how well they have learned to cope and they got the help they needed when they were little, now they do fine on their own with reading and writing while some others still needed extra help because of their dyslexia.

I don't think I've been on wrongplanet in over a year. not sure if I should mention my username there since it's the same one I have for my youtube and originaltrilogy.com sites.

I also agree that Asperger's is way overdiagnosed. I strongly believe that it is a REAL disorder, but like ADD/ADHD, professionals just keep throwing labels at people to make them happy. I deeply upsets me, because Asperger's was once an esoteric (for lack of a better word) community, but now everybody and their mother supposedly has Asperger's...

To the OP: Sure, I'll join.
