    I have Asperger's, so it's a physical disability, but it DOES disable me, in that it stops me doing things that I want to do, because of things like anxiety, fear, self-doubt, lack of confidence, feeling 'out of it' socially, etc.   I misunderstand an awful lot of things. I am always analysing things, which drives me crazy, but I can't help myself. I examine things upside down, side-to side, from all angles, and all perspectives, etc. Sometimes I wish I had blinkers on, so that I could only see one point of view, because that would be simpler! I don't always sleep too well, as my brain doesn't seem to want to switch off at night.  I cry easily. I have had inappropriate relationships, which didn't seem bad at the time, but I know NOW.

    Hi Carrie, I think my son has Asperger's although sadly he has never been diagnosed, because he was good at other things like school, so his struggles were never identified by the school or his teachers. I feel bad about that. Some of what you struggle with, are also my son's struggles, now looking back, but with the right foundations in place he is managing to live an independent life, but can sometimes get caught out when stress sets in. He can also be impulsive, which I believe is the main symptom of the condition.
