Could be asperges syndrome. This is something that is easy to diagnose. It 
takes just 5 min. at the right doctor.

Dont worry about it though. It doesnt matter really if you are autistic or 
not. What matters is that you have a life you are happy with and that you 
find a balance in your soul where you can rest comfortable within yourself. 
It doesnt matter at all if your best friend is your mom or if you have a 
hundred friends. Dont let society dictate who you should be. Take charge of 
your own life and choose your own path forward. Be happy with what you have 
and forget everything about "the grass being greener on the other side" 
because those thoughts will make you miserable.

The biggest problem for me before i had this diagnosed was that i felt 
different and i didnt know why. I felt strange and different and i didnt 
understand why nobody liked me. When i was diagnosed with asperges syndrome i 
suddently knew why. I have used this knowledge as a kind of therapy if you 
will. It has helped me to get a better social life because i could suddently 
direct my work for a better social life. There is no cure, there is no 
treatment. This is not even a sickness. Having asperges syndrome only helps 
you to tell you who you are and where your place in the universe is. It is 
not something you have, it is simething you are.
