Re: My brother has Aspergers and has just had a Psychotic Episode
I would be shocked if he is really Aspy. Most Aspbergers kids behave pretty normally, but they have some quirky behaviors. They are smart, smile, laugh and are funny and do everything everyone else does.
However, if they are behaving in a high functioning way, it is probably due to lots of love and OT, possibly some meds and special supplements. No narcotics. also, Aspies may need help in class, and some psychology visits to explain what is going on. but for the most part, nowadays an Aspy can fool most people and just seem dorky or quirky.
many of our scientists and musicians, artists are Asperger.
Seriously, I would listen to the others on this thread who have said bipolar. I know that if a bipolar person is misdiagnosed it can be tragic.
