Sky81 is on a distinguished road
Funny thing about the not talking issue.....I apparantly didn't talk at all until I was four, and then I started reciting one of my childrens books word for word, one night before my mom even opened it to read it to me.....my dad wasn't concerend because he didn't talk until he was about the same age.....once I started talking it came out in paragraphs....and, like my dad, I was a precosious reader....so I could read before I started kindergarden...maybe even before I began talking....not sure...

So whatever runs on my dad's side of the family I have some of it no doubt....although it's not comforting that he spent half of his twenties in institutions and his uncle and father both commited suicide......even my cousins on his side were affected....a few of them had learning disabilities and I know two take ADHD meds......and my dear little sister is BPI, and just recently stabilized......

I was kinda hoping that when I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder that everything would make sense.....it did explain the spending sprees, reckless driving, and made me make some overall bad decsions....and it explained how I could go days without sleep in college.....and it explained the funks.....

But it didn't explain everyting......like why I have the attention span of a ferret on meth....all the time.....

Do you plan to do more searching? Not everybody is like me, of course, but I practically worship information. When it came to my "disorder soup" I think I researched so much that I came dangerously close to reaching the end of the www.

We can always see what the Autistic Spectrum section here in Co-Ex has to say about it. Or I might be able to get one of my Aspie buddies to write me something up...he likes to do that type of thing and he likes to help. I really need to drag him in here one day.
