Can you see it in my eyes - that I have Asperger´s syndrome?

I am thinking and thinking. And thinking.
Ever since my childhood, I have been living without a «filter»; something to sort out impressions in a hierarchical order. For me this is completely natural, because I do not know of any other ways to live. As a child, I felt that most of other children and adults behaved very different from me, having totally different interests or lacking the desires similar to what I had. I was alone. But being alone is not the same as being lonely. I existed in my own world, but found a lot of euphoria in a few, but powerful interests. 

Having had the Tourette´s syndrome diagnose for years, it took me 38 years to get the additional Asperger´s syndrome diagnose, after someone came up with the idea that Asperger´s syndrome could be the reason to all my inexplicable episodes through the years. Asperger´s syndrome is a relatively new diagnose, and I can imagine a number of "outsiders" and artists throught the years might have had it, too. But Asperger´s syndrome is not an illness; it is a syndrome within the autism spectrum. It has its good sides, too.
