Re: Asperger's Syndrome and anxiety

lots of info on the net about aspergers which is frequently misdiagnosed as social anxiety disorder
its a big help if an aspergers sufferer can find someone who will tell them what they are doing wrong and offer constructive advice on how to act during social situations
an example is to not take every question literally 'How are you?' doesnt require a detailed summary of your health, for example

sadly however, many psychologists,and therapists are strongly indoctrinated to never give advice to their patients at all, I suggest any aspergers sufferer seeking help should firstly establish whether the helper is prepared and trained to give advice
Life is not a dress rehearsal
