Symptoms:
  1. I can sometimes hear very quite distant things or see them when others struggle or can’t.
  2. I excel at maths, non-fictional writing and spelling but I struggle with most other classes
  3. It’s quite easy for me to get sensory overload (when it’s too loud or something like that and you get very angry and overwhelmed)
  4. I have an obsession with my mental and physical health and capabilities
  5. I have severe difficulty with concentration
  6. I have severe difficulty with memory
  7. I act impulsively a lot
  8. I only have interest in video games, war history and vehicles. These interest are quite intense and they are the only things I can concentrate and remember with
  9. I have very little sexual drive
  10. I dream of having a romantic relationship, but I can’t get one
  11. I don’t have any close friends
  12. In most situations I have a “inferiority complex”
  13. I have a lot of trouble staying still, always moving feet or hands
  14. I do and say things repetitively
  15. I have poor social knowledge, such as not understanding body language
  16. In situations where I could be bothered or care I have to make things perfect and organised
  17. I always miss the bigger picture, and I notice a lot of detail
  18. Tolerance of mistreatment
I think my symptoms are more similar to personality disorders then any other category so I posted here

What I think are possible diagnoses:
Autism, ADHD/ADD, Schizoid, Avoidant

Thanks in advance for replies. This is the help I need

We are unable to diagnose on this forum your best off going to see your doctor and he /she can refer you to someone who is qualified to diagnose you
