I wish it was true. Because, when Iíve been diagnosed nine years ago, Iíve been automatically labelled as an intellectual deficient. Iíve been placed in a ďspecialĒ school where other kids has AS, too. The others kids hated me because I didnít ďfitĒ with mostly AS comportments. Even, many specialists wouldnít notice that I have Aspergerís Syndrome when they first meet me. Itís only when they get to know me better that they will notice some AS comportments. Contrary to someone who has AS at a high level, I donít have tics, I donít talk excessively about the same subject (ex.: airplanes or transistors) and I perfectly understand sarcasm and irony, which I master well, too. In fact, Iíve always been wondering if I was misdiagnosed, that I could have something else than AS. I still find it hard to believe that I really have AS. Thatís kind of unfair, to me.
