Autism v. Aspergers

Once I took a test designed to determine my personal strengths where I chose betwen two options and if I couldn’t, it moved on.  I’d often thought besides left and right there should be an up for both and a down for neither.  When you have a forced choice, sometime you can’t choose because both options are equally attractive. Smetimes neither is attractive. Either case looks the same from the outside.

I used to think autism was a standoff between ADHD and OCD which I saw in my relatives. But someone with diminished but equal attentional or regulatory drives could have the same presentation, and that’s the autism that some people find tragic.
