It's been a while since I have talked to them last about it, but I still really want to get a diagnosis. What should I do? Should I even bring it up again?
    It doesn't matter if you have it or not. It's not like something would be significantly different if you had the diagnosis.

    No
    No it is not an excuse for anything

    Ludwig said it correctly, nobody is going to care if you have aspergers or not. Your potential is not defined by your condition.

    See this is exactly what this syndrome does. I might be wrong, but I don't think he meant it the way you guys are taking it. It's extremely hard to explain things right. Please don't be rude

    It seems people are leaning way to close to extremes here.

    Having Aspberger's Syndrome certainly doesn't give you a free pass be unpleasant to other people. But it doesn't mean you shouldn't expect some basic consideration from other people either.

    I guess I want to change the subject. I'm just.. I'm bipolar. But recently I've been having issues dealing with it--moreso than usual. People are noticing (the ones that don't know) and I really want to avoid that. I just.. have no clue what to do.

    I'm no expert on the subject, but I would imagine you can't really help your mood changes if you're diagnosed with bipolarity. Via remissions, I guess you could try to diminish the symptoms but there isn't much you can do, and it would obviously be best to talk to a professional about it. I would probably recommend going to a support group session. You'd meet other people dealing with the same thing as you, you could get answers and maybe get more comfortable with being bipolar.

    As a person actually diagnosed, I am going to say it doesn't mean anything besides you don't have that innate human conscious telling you that you should be nice, you can just choose. It really isn't an excuse for anything besides a little bit of antisocialness, and emotional distance. That is at least as far as being an adult with the disability goes.

    I, actually, have Aspergers as well. Do you wanna know how much it's affected my life?

    I'm 22 years old, living perfectly well on my own, graduated from college, and with a close circle of friends and coworkers that would never even guess I have anything wrong mentally.

    Aspergers is just another one of those mental diseases they named for the sake of people having an excuse. I'm aware that mine is a more mild case, yes, but I've met plenty of people with more heavy cases, and I can tell you now that the only time it's ever an excuse is for people already looking for one.

    A little bit of antisocialness and emotional distance doesn't even require an excuse.

    Asperger's mostly effects people as a kid doesn't really do that much as an adult. There are things there but most people will write them of as unplesent, anti-social, ect. Asperger's just have a different way of thinking and function then the norm.

    My family beats on me a lot for it. I had a funeral this weekend and it was really awkward, I really never understood why people get so worked up about death.

    Neither did I tbh (which made pet deaths in my family even more awkward). The idea that people can get so worked up over something that WILL happen to everyone once has always stumped me.

    I guess, it would be a lot more difficult for me to lose my best friends, and a 72 year old family member where death was soon imminent anyways.

    About 5 months ago I was in a relationship while talking to a previous ex. It was chill, they were friends and knew about each other.
    But, I was getting nudes and having secret rendezvous with my ex. Then out of the blue she decided to become super Christian like her family and told me that I was manipulating her and we couldn't be friends. She hasn't talked to me and I haven't talked to her since.

    Now I'm kinda wanting to start over with her, as friends. Then maybe become something more in the next few years? We're both about to go off to college, both 18 y/o seniors.

    I need some advice on how to approach this situation.

    If you believe in Jesus Christ put this in your profile and don't just ignore this, because in the Bible it says, ‘If you deny me, I will deny you in front of my Father in the gates of Heaven.’

    No offense, but this kind of sounds like one of those times where you should just forget about it. This already sounds confusing and full of drama. I don't think things would go well if you continued to try and pursue a relationship with this person.

    That's what I've been trying to do. But it's turning out harder to ignore her than it is to deal with her emotional side
