Am I on the spectrum? Does it matter if I am?

I recently spent a while babysitting for a pre-teen girl with Asperger's. I found her behavior to be eerily reminiscent of myself at that age, with the key difference being that I have never had an Asperger's diagnosis. I *do* have a diagnosis of chronic anxiety and ADHD.
As an adult, I still struggle sometimes with things that feel like they should be basic life skills by now. If it weren't for that, I wouldn't particularly feel the need to seek out a professional opinion in re: Asperger's, but I'm curious about whether there are coping strategies taught to people on the spectrum that might be useful to me. Does anyone know whether that's the case? Is it worth finding out whether my hunch is correct?
