I think I finially know what I have. Ever since I can remember, even as a child, I would get these obsessions with stupid stuff like I had a facination with shoes, then it was my hair, then it was babies, I can't even remember all the stuff, but I would get so obsessed about whatever it was I was "on to" that that was all I could think about at the time. I have never been social and I never understand jokes and people think I am "weird" because of the things I like. I was a nerd in school (no friends really). People just said I was dumb because I had no humor and I was weird. This was very hard on me because I didn't know why I liked the things I did and I coudn't help it. I thought maybe I had o.C.D. But I didn't really wash all the time or check things over and over. Then, I saw a program on t.V. About aspergers and it fit me to a tee. If anyone has this, please let me know so I can figgure out if I should go see a phycyatrist and get tested. Thanks a lot.

maybe talking to a docotor would be a good idea?
