Shrugs, Not Hugs

Bio: I was diagnosed with moderate/severe Asperger's Syndrome at the age of 23. I'm like most people. But some things people find easy, like socializing and friendships, require a lot of effort. On the bright side there are things I can do easily which a lot of "normal" people have to try really hard to do. Not being diagnosed when I should have been created some sizeable problems in my life so with this blog I hope to: - Raise awareness of Asperger's Syndrome & other autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs) - Stress the importance of seeking a diagnosis as early as possible - Answer questions for people seeking a diagnosis for themselves or a family member/friend - Engage with commonly held assumptions about ASDs - Discover and discuss the ways in which Asperger's Syndrome affects my life
