Maybe I'm reading too much into things, but the more I read about PDD-NOS the more I believe I have it.
K and I have been reading the "100 Day Kit" from Autism Speaks. http://www.autismspeaks.org/community/family_services/100_day_kit.php
Within this document there's a page (Page 16 of the .pdf) that states the strengths. Scarily all but one I have (the artistic ability). Then there's the "Social Symptoms" (pg 13 of the .pdf) - OMG, that's me again.
I know there's a genetic link, and I wonder if my parents ever noticed? Maybe because I was blessed with a strong will and independence I was able to compensate for my short-comings?
How many others are out there that are undiagnoised, but are functioning members of society?
Maybe we are the norm, and those that were the norm are now the abnormality?
