In brief: Mild autism

There's no pill / cure so whether it's even worth diagnosing is moot.
Get help with social skills that others learn naturally. Choose a strength / endurance sport rather than a team / coordination sport. Your mind focuses amazingly; choose science / tech rather than comics / train schedules and you'll go far. If you're good with being single / along, you're very fortunate. Best wishes.
