Interesting find. I scored a 32 on that!

What's strange is that the high school psychologist thought I had Asperger's. The counselors/therapists at college disagreed and stated that it is more a mix of OCD/ADHD, some PTSD, and maybe NVLD, that has caused my social and academic difficulties alike.

Elementary and middle school teachers, by the way, just though I was hyper or lazy (or both at once!) and oblivious to social situations. In kindergarten, counselors came in, evaluated me, and basically said I had ADHD (though not in a formal manner). I got occupational therapy for a few years (but never medication), but that got cut off due to budget cuts.
