Hi doctor,

I do not conduct well in social situations. I have two friends. I have difficulty in seeing them without alcohol as I am anxious about it. When I am willing to communicate with my partner, I prefer to send messages even when he is next to me. I become overwhelmed when I stay in a social situation. I hate meeting new people. I often meet rude or sarcastic people. I do not understand the sarcasm of others. Can I have Asperger syndrome?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

You are an introvert personality and you have a less likely chance to have Asperger syndrome. In this condition, there is difficulty in communicating with new persons. You may like to live alone at home rather than going to parties. You may like your own time rather than spending time with friends or social gatherings. You have a small friend circle with limited friends. Due to your introverted nature, you may lack confidence and suffer from an inferiority complex.

You need to accept yourself and work on how you can improve yourself. You should try to follow healthy guidelines to build your confidence. You should do exercise daily for 30 to 45 minutes daily. You can do meditation for 20 minutes daily and just sit in a place in a comfortable position and try to concentrate on having normal breathing. Do not stop or force yourself to stop your thoughts.

Take home-cooked foods and avoid taking junk foods. You should drink plenty of water. Spend some quality time with friends and family daily. Try to spend some time with your creative hobbies like reading books, writing journals, painting, drawing, learning new skills or language or musical instruments. Have enough sleep for seven to eight hours daily. Avoid taking tobacco or alcohol or any substance abuse. Live your life and do not spend it. Be bold and confident.
