    Asperger's

    I was diagnosed with SAD not too long ago but my mother is positive I have Aspergers.

    I'm seeing a therapist for the first time Friday, and I guess she'll clear it up. But I was wanting to know if the two are commonly confused when being diagnosed.

    Thank yo

    People with Aspergers also suffer from social situations.

    SAD is highly comorbid with Autism spectrum disorders. Autism involves social deficits that can easily lead to social anxiety. A good doctor won't confuse them if they do a thorough assessment though.

    Did you find out if its ASD or just SAD? My older son is borderline ASD, but his official diagnoses are sensory processing disorder (SPD) and anxiety. He had about 5 years in a social skills group at a psychologist's office. He's really come a long way, but he still struggles with anxiety and bouts of low self-esteem/depression.
    The therapist is now saying anxiete and possible bipolar, with SPD.

    Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that comes and goes in a seasonal pattern. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a condition that affects social interaction, communication, interests and behaviour.
