    aspergers, ADD, and OCD

    My brother has all of the above disorders. The problem is he absolutely refuses to even consider that he has anything but ADD. He is so obsessed with videotaping he will have people take his camera and tape him doing the most mundane stuff like helping someone move a pingpong table out of their basement. He is very argumentative and inflexible and has issues with authority. He now has an issue with the courts and I don't know how he can be helped if he won't allow these disorders to be considered. He is just functional enough to be his worst enemy and is challenging to spend time with at the least. I am wondering if there are others out there who will not admit their diagnoses. My brother is convinced we all have the problem except him, and he thinks people would think he is mentally retarded if he had AS, or mentally ill if he had OCD. We don't know what to do to help him. Any advice would be very appreciated .
