Growing up I was alway a little awkward. Never been a shy one by any means but something about me just didn't mesh with most people. I thought I has aspergers for a long time but lately since I got to college and been focused on my hustle I really came out of my shell. 


I have truly ascended.

The most prevalent mental ilness on this site is probably autism spectrum disorder. Aspergers can frequently be misdiagnosed as NPD and even schizophrenia.

If you looksmax hard enough and delude yourself(like ER and SR) you could end up with NPD or schizophrenia, both of which are preferable to autism.

I didn't outgrow them, they just changed. 

I used to have a massive obsession with the things I was interested in (flags, Warhammer and dinosaurs  at the time), now I just get insane anxiety and terror when any possibly relationship/sexual situation comes up

Tell me the secret srs

I left my hick ass home town and got my own shit popping. I guess I never really had my own thing going until I got started with music. Now everything just seems to flow since most o my interactions are based on that. I think I got tense when I didn't have something to prove myself with and that's what came across as autistic

Schizophrenia would definitely be worse than aspergers imo. NPD maybe not, my guess is goodlooking people will be mistaken for NPD over aspergers due to Halo Effect.

It may be worse but is not nearly as repulsive as having autism.

I have got better and better and better until now at age 30, I can almost pass for a confident normietypical in many situations.

It took until my mid-20s to achieve it, though. I believe I "could have" ascended much earlier, had I just started learning back then. It really just takes one or two wrong choices or chance events to put you on the wrong course, developmentally speaking.


Good for you, OP, ascending so young.

ER still had zero friends, shit tier social skills, limited independent living skills (could not hold a job, pay the bills, etc), and was still extremely rigid.  He still had autism.  There's a certain flavor of autism that has a ton of NPD characteristics in addition to ASD because the person starts to perseverate about themselves and then uses their piss poor social skills to recruit attention regarding their achievements/traits constantly.  Autism creates a type of NPD that is uniquely severe and obnoxious.  

HFA is much better to have than schizophrenia as schizophrenia is much more frequently entirely disabling.
