Lifeline you are wrong.

My brother is 14 and has aspbergers. Sure, he is a little awkward sometimes, but not much more than any teenager. He had issues when he was younger mostly dealing with anxiety, but he has gotten better with age and therapy. He is on medication, but he is on less as he ages. Children with aspbergers do usually have “sensitive” stomachs and may have allergies or intolerances. But aspbergers is a type of high functioning autism and will not affect a person’s life negatively if the right steps are taken-my litle brother is proof!

I am a college student with Asperger syndrome. Until about my senior year in High School, I wasn’t very accepted. Middle school was the worst. People of a different race treated me the worst. The smartest students were the nicest. I was bullied. I didn’t really have any friends. People took advantage of me.
