    I was tested this past week for Aspergers and have more tests next week, one test says 40 and another says 33, took IQs and testers were dumb founded as I seem more dumb than founded. I just feel like am slipping, losing reality, losing what spent lifetime of watching people to see how I can to act. Then kick in bi-polar who hears tones when I am studying charting. I still have some feelings and pray I don't lose them. Just drifting in life.

  4. 2006. Excellent year and era. Completely different world then. o_O -- Everything changed...after the 2008/09 market crisis.

    That era felt like a colorful birthday cake. -- While modern times, after that crisis, has felt like a neutral, cold, slab of metal.

    You might have Assburning instead, from to much Starbucks to early in the morning.

    After all these years? Why bother? I enjoy trading because no need to socialize and no one bother me when I trade.

    There so much more I have battles within myself and although my father was very abusive, perhaps I placed unwarranted blame on always needing to be the best in anything I had my sights on. Much much more but now I know there are other Aspies.

    I never enjoyed trading, but enjoy developing systems & stats and all on automation.
