If you are sure you have Asperger syndrome you need to go and see your doctor and ask him to refer you to a clinical psychologist, preferably one who specialises in AS. It is possible to get a diagnosis of AS as an adult. I have a relative who we always thought was a bit eccentric, he was diagnosed as having AS at 69 years old. Is it worth getting a diagnosis when you have managed all these years without one? Also a diagnosis of AS will not change you in any way other than to give you a label. I wish you good luck.
