    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I am 42 years old and finding out I might have Aspergers. Many symptoms that I read about I had or am currently encountering them. I seem to fall more into the Social Anxiety Disorder, but some of Aspergers symptoms does apply to me as well. Are there any other people in my age group that had found out they have or might have this syndrome in their 40's? what steps were taken next? testing? interviews? meds? anything of what might be next for me would be appreciated.

    My son and I have Asperger's. My goal is to share our gifts from this, rather than being discouraged about how we "don't fit in".
