I have Asperger's Syndrome.


Even saying it makes me feel relief.


I'm not weird.


I'm not strange.


I'm not different.


Well, I am different.


But I'm different for a reason.


My brain is wired up differently.


My brain is square when everybody else's is round.


My brain has three layers and everybody else has eight.


I get worried when I don't know what I'm doing.


I get worried around lots of people.


I get worried if things change.


I'm bad at telling how people feel.


I'm bad at reading people's faces.


I'm bad at a lot of social things.


But I'm good at things too.


I'm good at Maths.


I'm good at Music.


I'm good at knowing right from wrong.


I was unhappy before I knew about my Asperger's.


I'm not happy now. But I am relieved.


I'm an Aspie.


And I'm sure about things that I wasn't sure about before.

I recently got diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. These are my thoughts on it.

I wrote a little something on AS but since I'm no poet I just wrote what came to me in a story-like thing. Great description though

This is really great, and it's a wonderful description of AS. I felt exactly like this when I was let to know I had Asperger's Syndrome. This is just a wonderfully simple summary which is why I'm faving it. :)

You're not alone. Just remember that.
I get freaked out in large crowds. I take noise canceling headphones with me almost everywhere.
It took me three tries to say all this because I didn't know how to phrase it.
You have my support.

This is so moving. I have two friends with Asperger's Syndrome and both of them are fascinating, lovely people. I don't understand the stigma society has against people with Apserger's.

I think you should be very proud of this piece...and yourself. You have a lot of strength. :heart:

Thank you very much. I don't understand the stigma either. I think it's maybe because people self-diagnose and then use it as an excuse to be a jerk online. I don't feel strong, but thank you anyway :-)
Thanks again,
Julia

We're one of the only people that are able to think reasonably. Use it in your advantage. Also, you're going to get the feeling that you understand yourself much better over time. Be who you are, not who other people want you to be.

I got dx'd a couple of years ago, and the more I learn the more my life makes sense. I also feel more proud knowing my genetic heritage includes am unwavering respect for truth, justice, and compassion. I'm also beginning to learn a compassionate tolerance for NT's; for, to borrow a quote "they know not what they do" nor more importantly why they do it. I also believe most of the secondary mental issues that so many aspies have is a sane response to growing up in a society that is hardwired, from our perspective, to be insane.

I really agree. I have a ridiculous number of mental issues, as you'll see if you look at the rest of my artwork, and I'm pretty sure that most of them are from this crazy, crazy world that we live in.
