Hey, I know exactly how you feel. My little sister is six and she Asperger's along with ADHD. We adopted her when she was two, and she was always... well, I wouldn't say different, because I've got no idea how a "normal" little sister acts. If I had to describe it, I'd say she acts like my three year old little brother. My mom puts it this way; emotionally, she's three, inttelectually, she's seven or eight. She was abused and molested before she came to us, so that just adds to the mess. She used to act really crazy and wild when she got wound up, but since we've started her on medication for her ADHD, she's been WAY better. Still innapropriate at times, though... Anyway, I totally get your situation. Bye!

My brother has Asperger's syndrome. He's 23, and it's been really hard for him school-wise and socially. I love him so much and we're so close, but it definitely took a while. When I was younger, I just didn't understand that he needs different things than I do and he just doesn't think the same way I do. He's had a lot of trouble in school but now he's working towards an Associate's Degree in computer programming and I am so proud of him! He's been through a lot with this, and I have so much respect for him. The most important thing you can do is just be there for him. Spend some time with him and get to know him really well. My brother and I had some rough patches, but once I got to know him better, we became super-close.

You can be a great example for your brother!
Here is a poem I love that inspires me to get up and be the best I can be!
Dare to Be
When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.
When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.
When times are tough, dare to be tougher.
When love hurts you, dare to love again.
When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.
When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
Dare to be the best you can –
At all times, Dare to be!

Oh like that dude from Degrassi.
Sorry, I love learning about diseases. (I have an obsession)
So sorry about the syndrome your brother's dealing with though.

Yeah my 15 year old brother has that too, but it is not that bad. He doesn't really understand some things like emotions and socializing, but i love him, and it isnt sad at all it's who he is. It has also made him a super genius, not joking he is the smartest person i know! There's no need to worry, he is just as lovable as my youger brother. <3
