Re: Can children with mild Autism grow up to be normal adults?

I'm a 19-year-old Aspie who is about to start her sophomore year of college next week. I'm quite proud of myself that I was able to survive my freshman year. There was a time when I was seriously considering dropping out for a year to get my OCD (and what I didn't know was Asperger's) under control. Thank God I got my own room and was put on Lamictal. That and having my chemistry class were the only things that saved me. It's hard. Many days are struggles, but I only have a moderate case without severe social deficits, so there are many Aspies out there who are much worse off than I am.
