I hope you don't mind if I ask another question. Both of you mentioned toe walking. I have always walked on my tippy toes when allowed to walk naturally. And if I am in shoes that force my heel down, there is a very noticeable bounce to my walk. You would not believe the size of my calves. I got teased no end about these things, and I remember that someone (a doctor) once told my mother that it was a sign of a problem. Is that what toe walking is, or is there a special meaning to it?
I have visited several internet sites and read "Pretending to be Normal" by Liane Holliday Willey, but neither mentions toe walking. I also glanced at a rather scholarly text that mentioned the overlap in criteria between the schizoid and schizotypal personality disorder and Asperger's. If I read correctly, they look to family history, which in my case would lean towards schizotypal since I have at least one aunt and two cousins with a firm diagnosis of schizophrenia.
I really appreciate that the two of you, and Caroline, have been sharing your experiences. I'm sure that many of us have been educated about the syndrome.
