Thanks for all the information.

I did an internet search and the many of the criteria did look familiar, especially in the more informal descriptions. My husband recognized me in the descriptions as well. The overformal language and concern with precision in language, the social problems (I've been practicing smiling and greeting people), the rocking, the overstimulation, even what I call my "enthusiasms" were all described. It doesn't look like a bad thing though, just different.

I will definitely do more research on this and bring it up with my doctor next time I see him, if I have the courage. When you read the description of something, it's all too easy to think you have it. And there does seem to be some overlap with OCD and especially schizotypal personality disorder in the criteria.

Thanks again.
Dinah
