Adults with Aspergers and High-Functioning Autism


==> I am 43 now i have a male adult child with aspergers and a teenage male child with it as well , we are carbon copies pretty much, when I started to try to learn more I started putting the pieces together, it has been a challenge for years for me and i have gone through melt down after melt down when I was working in the career i chose. I have been trying for over a year to get diagnosed and its been one road block after another, i think I have appeared more normal because my wife has done so many things for me over the last 17 years it appears like I am able to function on my own, but I have so many challenges it is overwhelming. Hopefully i will get my answer soon. 
==> Though being on the spectrum has been challenging for me it has also literally saved my life. I'm gay and came of age in the mid 70's, years before anyone had known of AIDS. I am very socially inhibited. But if I were more socially normal in meeting guys and doing the things sexually that many of the guys were at that time I would have certainly contracted AIDS just as many of them did. So, there is always another, more positive way to consider what being on the spectrum has brought to my life.

Wife's Letter to Aspergers Husband

Here is an awesome letter from a wife to her husband with Asperger's. I hope Danielle and her husband have found the happiness they deserve. This is an example of what a difference it is for loving NT spouses to gain insight into Asperger's. It's like opening a window in a dim room. Suddenly everything makes sense, and the sunlight can get in.
