I think having Asperger’s Syndrome makes me a kind and decent human being, and as my mum says “you wouldn’t be you”. I can feel overwhelming empathy for people with hidden disabilities like myself, or even physical disabilities. One of the symptoms of Asperger’s is that sufferer’s have a particular interest, and can be obsessive about it. But that can be a good thing because say for instance, somebody who might know a lot about train timetables or computers could really excel in a job doing what they love. Yes it can make me feel very vulnerable at times, but I agree with my mum I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t have it.
