Hi. Yeah, I know what you mean. It's a strange one. Usually many disablilties have nothing but hinderences on a person, I'm not saying Aspergous doesn't, however, it does mean that a person with this has a very high intelligence level, usually higher than average. We also have very very good memories, to the extent if you move a pen in a room full of stationary I'd be able to tell you which one and what postition it was orginally in. We also devolop obsessions, and tend to know a lot about them. Mine are obviously computers, which fortunately I've managed to develope this into a career, and my others are planes, cars, and choppers (Helicopters). We are very sensitive to change and don't usually like it either, which can sometimes prove to be a problem as you grow up, for instance leaving school, as the daily routine changes somewhat, which we like to keep to. Early devlopment such as speech is usually a problem, heck, I couldn't talk until the age of 4! It's usually a general rule for people with this condition, it's very hard to teach us something new, and is usually a long process, but once learned we're usually better at it than the next person. Other aspects of this condition is interpreting other peoples emotions and expressions, plus we find it very hard to build relationships as a general, as well as girlfriends, etc. I usually end up upsetting people simply because I can't interprit body language and expressions, I've overcome this problem to an extent, but I've had many fallouts and misunderstanding because of it, and still do now and then. A consultant explanied to my parents when I was 15 years old (I'm 17 now) that my mental development in the case of social and relations, is around 2 years younger than my actual age, but my inteligence level is 2 years advanced of my actual age. So basically I had the mind of a 13 year old but the intelligence level of an A level college student. In the past I used to be really widthdraw and quiet until about the age of 12ish, but now, I'm still very shy, but my social life is somewhat at a high at the minute I reckon, and I have many many friends. Anyway, that's about all I can say I think at the minute. Any questions, just ask away.
