so I’m a little confused with my diagnosis. I though I was diagnosed with autism and aspergers, is this possible or is it just aspergers lol
Asperger's is autism, Jason. It's just the name usually given to people at the high-functioning (hate that term) end. Some people might say 'Oh, Asperger's - that's not really autism, though, is it.' Yes it is.

yep, it's just a different name. The way diagnosis is heading, particularity in the US, no-one will be diagnosed as Aspergers in the future, it will all be autism.
My recent diagnosis was as Aspergers, with a qualifying paragraph that cited it was also a diagnosis of autism.
Oh ok and I also don’t like “high functioning” as I doesn’t really reflect what u might be like, ie I’m affected badly socially so as a result I would say I don’t function at all really lol
Mine said Adult Autistic Spectrum Condition (Asperger's).
I was puzzled as to why they needed to put 'adult'. Suggests 'adult onset' to me!
