### Re: help me

Hmm
By the way, Shouldn't you move this thread to another section such as "Dark Discuusions at Cafe Infinity"
This thread over here is a bit misleading( though logically correct)

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

### Re: help me

OK but why Introductions?

I have a fundemental and paradoxical question(maybe it is a catch-22):
Isn't beleiving "I am crazy" a craziness itself?

### Re: help me

Then, might I ask that whether the inclination to become crazy and to want to become crazy is a craziness?

### Re: help me

Earlier I used to tell AlokaSarkar that I am an abnormal person, one day she became very serious and told me not to tell such "negative" things.
I never told her that anymore
But, nowadays she tells it herself

There has been a lot of things I have done to prove my insanity , not only to her but also to him who drew this avatar and even Nky

### Re: help me

Oh! No, I didn't get #82 clearly

Sometimes I think that only I am very much Normal and everyone else is crazy and that is why I seem to be relatively crazy in terms of other people

### Re: help me

I read that book and found that the protagonist and me have a lot of similarities
and now
I believe that I've got Asperger's Syndrome.

Oh...interesting.  Why do you think you have aspergers out of curiosity?

### Re: help me

I heard about that novel called "The Curious Incident of the Dog in Night Time" from my father when I was around 7
The nature of the protagonist intrigued me

Then I read the full novel for the first time when I was 10 but I didn't understand everything
I read the book again around 10 months ago and found more similarities between the protagonist and me and then found that That is called The Asperger's syndrome

There are a number of things which I do or which I have done and I think that theory about me fits in the most

I don't quite understand what your trying to say, but I wouldn't quite call that aspergers unless I'm misunderstanding.  Would you mind being more specific on what you think aspergers is, because at the moment, I'm more inclined to agree with bobbym...

I can not stress enough about the dangers of self diagnosis.

Let's say you are correct, so what. What am I supposed to do? Should I not talk to you? Treat you like a monster? Would that really change your life if you had such a mild form of autism?
