Re: confused yet hopeful - is it autism?
My son has Aspergers, high functioning. After he was diagnosed my husband and I think that he, my husband, is touched with a bit of it also. Has trouble in crowds, all the noise can at times be just to much. At times his thinking is very rigid and concrete. Whats the word..you need to say exactly what you mean, no beating around the bush with him...doesn't take subtle hints, have to be direct...there are numerous things. So yes, your boyfriend may be touched with a bit of Aspergers...but doesn't everyone have quirks that make us all different and different ways of looking at things. If we were all the same it would make life a bit boring.
