what symptoms do you have?

Ask Your Own Autism Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I scored high on the Cambridge assessment, and have had life-long problems interacting with people. I offend frequently and have very different priorities in discussion than most. I get frustrated or angry when I address exactly what people say or write, and am criticized for being nit-picky.My belief is that we should think first, say what we mean, and where we have disagreement, follow rules for rational analysis or decision-making. I regard it as rude (almost immoral) not to think clearly before I communicate.I feel insulted when people feel entitled to blame me for taking their exact words to mean what they plainly say.This causes a lot of conflict and suffering for me and my family. I observe overwhelming majority of people do not share these beliefs.

have you considered counseling for this?

Asperger's individuals tend to also lack the ability to see other's point of view

It sounds like you might be able to work on that

I am considering this. An initial assessment seems a reasonable first step.Since I am in Patagonian Chile, seeking online assessment and counseling if appropriate seems a good route.With focused effort and time, I do seem to be able to understand why other's take particular views, but this is of little help after another is offended, sometimes to the point of what a commenter described as "spreading poison".
Autism Expert: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 5 months ago

I think part of your problem is you keep describing it as "other's views". That seems to disregard the fact that others might see your views as "others views". This type of concrete thinking is typical of aspergers but it also the kind of concrete thinking that you need to overcome

I do tend to disregard that.How / where might I obtain assessment testing and if appropriate: counseling online, given my current location?
Autism Expert: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 5 months ago
There are many online counseling sites. Have you researched it?
Ask Your Own Autism Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No, I thought I should speak with a subject matter expert in the field to advise on whether I should seek help and if so: what goals are appropriate and selection criteria to identify a good service.It seems like counseling is indicated. Can you help with goals and how I might rate possible providers?
Autism Expert: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 5 months ago

There are other sites that provide this service

We are not allowed by JA to recommend competing sites though.

I'm sorry

Can you tell me anything about how to set counseling goals?
Autism Expert: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 5 months ago

I think you will need to judge that based on your personal interactions with other

Objective reviews of how relationships are going, etc

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
