| | My twin brother has asperger's syndrome and i don't.
My twin brother has had aspergers syndrome for most of his life, and me being his twin sister does not. We are now going into the 10th grade, and im trying to research the syndrome and try too understand it more in order to help my brother. Seeing him get picked on and bullied for the last 10 school years has really affected the both of us. HE was nown as the "Crazy kid" and I was known as the "Crazy kids sister" My brother doesnt have any friends so when he meets somebody that can come close to being a friend, he becomes attached.
He is super polite to people; teachers, strangers.. it doesnt matter, butwhen he gets mad or upset he is a completely different person.
He is a very distant person from his family, he stays in his room everyday and only comes out to eat or use the restroom. I believe video games are the only thing in this world that makeshim feel normal.
I have tried to hang out with him, but because he only likes to talk about video games, things got really boring.
it is really difficult to understand him, and it seems really difficult or him to understand me, so we both just get frustrated and end up not talking.
is there a book i can read, or website i can go to, to try and help me understand him and his condition better?
is it my fault he is so distant?
can anybody help and give me any kind of advice?
