    How ever they say autism is caused, I say that I have been born with Asperger's syndrome, with my own set of sensory experiences and emotional sensitivities. Having suffered episodes of psychosis and bi-polar moods, I've been diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder. It's very likely that I'm schizoid too, so I say that I just have a schizoid personality, wading a bit in the waters of the mystic (and hopefully not to perpetually drown in them :openmouth:!). Schizoaffective disorder was once borne of psychosis for me but is basically mostly hypo-mania with some intermittent depression now.

    I'm 30 years old now, but now dependent on family for finances and transportation since my latest psychosis back in 2016. Still, it's a wonderful life especially with the internet, books, and e-book / software. Despite never being able to recall to satisfaction, I love reading and learning a lot, and posting here has become a bit of a new hobby because I feel like I can make a positive difference by participating here.

    I love reading about religion and spirituality in general, but with that I've had to pick and choose what to believe in and ended up being called to Christ (well, again, and again, and again to be honest, but maybe this time finally for good). My other reading interests are in psychology and reading about anatomy and physiology of the various organ systems and brain. I want to self-actualize best I can given my disability, and so I am quite interested in mind of matter kind of stuff too.

    Along with the Asperger's Syndrome, I've developed visual snow a lot more noticeably back in December (also in my variant known as visual tinnitus), and I think that in part has to do with my disability. But along with that, becoming a bit more hypo-manic and energized overall since then, I've almost become characteristic of having short-sleep syndrome, needing 3-5 hours per night every night (but my anti-psychotics, especially the stronger Olanzapine when needed, can fudge that a bit).

    Note: I can be really off-base in my posts sometimes, and I frequently find myself mis-communicating and having to edit my posts, usually not to satisfaction anyway. So please let me know if I don't make sense :p !
