Self-diagnosis  
I have a Szaszian distrust of psychiatric diagnoses, even the ones that can’t plausibly be applied to me. I consider myself to be on the “spectrum” that gets people labeled with autism/Asperger’s, ADHD, narcissism, libertarianism, and introversion, among others, because we live in our minds and deal with the world instead of living directly in the world like the neurotypicals. I used to think I was an Aspie, but now I’m convinced I’m much more of an ADDer.

There is a site called ADDitude that promises to pander to my kind. It is set up as click-one-after-another instead of one big page that I can comfortably move back and forth on, which, given my attention issues, makes me want to inflict grievous bodily harm upon them.
