Re: I have just been diagnosed with Aspergers :(?
There is wonderful hope for folks diagnosed with AS who are willing to learn about themselves and accept themselves and accept NT's as they are too. Find a life skills coach (rather than a regular counselor) who understands about AS. Check out Jessica Kingsley Publishers (on line) for resources for your age group. A good book is: The Journal of Best Practices A Memoir of Marriage, Asperger Syndrome, and One Man's Quest to Be a Better Husband It is written by David Finch. If that book does not work for you, try others, and find other people with AS that are your own age.. Some really great people out there. Good Luck and keep working at this and you will be ok.. and a gift to the world in your own unique way.
