    Hey... wanted to add that I now know that I have Asperger's as well as my sister, mother, and three more relatives on my mother's side! Funny thing is, all the affected are women, and ASD is supposed to affect primarily males. I don't think I've met more than two girls with ASD... Somehow the genes in my mother's family dictate the women to be susceptible, there are few boys born into the family, and those that are do not have any disorder (besides tending to be alcoholics). I'll be hunted down for studies at some point xD
    We're all high-functioning enough to live on our own, so the diagnosis doesn't come easy. It's only when you wonder about how we are socially and how we react to stimuli that you hear "ASPERGER'S" big and loud. We tend to suck at school and do best by ourselves, though if we want to fit in we can be "fake" easily with a little smile and high-pitched giggle at anything someone says. My parents took me out of school in first grade when the staff said I must be dyslexic due to failing in reading/writing. I just didn't work well in a group setting. So my mother bought me a bunch of books and I schooled myself. By the time I had to go to high school to get a higher education, the eval showed that I was college-level in reading and writing, but below average in math. I hate fractions, and it took me a long time to figure out what variables were. I'm above-average in trigonometry though :P
