Don't Underrestimate Us

I was diagnosed with Asperger's when I was five and practically given up. The docs said I would never ever function properly, or so I am told. Well, here am I, a senior in highschool and still making it. Every day is a struggle, but an adventure too and so far, I've overcome most hardships, with maybe a few figurative bruises and stickes more than others, but I did it. Going to college next year, and I might even get a place of my own in a year. Take that, doctors!

Good for you! :)

I'm an Aspie too although I was actually diagnosed at 11 with A.D.D/HD. When I was your age I managed to succeed in school, so can you.

Good on you. It's good to be positive.
