i already asked this but never got an awnser
are there any articles designed for people with aspergers rather than ones that insult us i would love some tips
Hey girl, I'm sorry ou feel insulted, our goal was to inform people, not insult them. Right now, we don't have any articles designed for people with aspergers, but there are probably sites out there on the internet that can help you. There are tons of articles on GL, though, so even if we don't have something specifically geared for you, you might find good advice. xoxo

I know how much Asperger's can affect you. My eight year old boy cousin was diagnosed when he was five years old.. he has problems with making friends and temper tantrums. He is a very sweet little boy though, always cracks you up or tells you some lame joke that's only funny when he says it. He is a very special child, and he is always so happy. He coped the best when my grandma passed onn and we were very proud of him. Sure, he has a disability, but he has something genuine inside of him- and that's what we love about him.

my older sister has aspergers to a lot of people think its a big joke and that she makes it up
she was diagnosed with it in the 6th grade and its not super noticable but its thare its like a mild form of autism it makes her stubborn and antisocial and cling to the past a lot it is hard to deal with but if u work hard and include ur sibling in stuff they will be happier
trust me i kno

My sisters friend had to be Life Lined to a hospital last night and she's been fasting and praying and worrying about her because she might have not made it through the night but she did but is still worrying that she might pass away! She is really stressed out and dreary! Please answer fast! She looks like she's hurting herself!

My BFF has a lil bro with asperger syndrome (more like a half brother) just hang in there!
by naturallywonderful on 4/6/2010 2:43:57 PM
whoever wrote this in i know exactly how you feel, i have two brothers and they are identical twins who are 13 and they have aspergers and adhd, i try to get along with them so much, i want to beable to have a relationship with them but its really difficult :/ we just found out about them having it this past 3 years and because of how bad some situations have been one of my brothers lives with my dad (whom also has aspergers). Ive tried to find out whats been going on with my brothers for the past who knows how many years and now that i know, im trying as much as possible to get along with it (although its not working... and i feel that almost all hope is gone for me..) You still have a chance, get along with him and treasure him, finding out about his aspergers when hes younger helps alot, it puts less stress on you and your family and also you can try to help with it earlier in life.

Well, make sure he isn't king of the household. That will just fuel his innappropriate behavior. How would I know? My mom. You will need patience and endurance. Never give up! I'm on your side <3

by macilynn24 on 1/27/2010 6:18:35 PM
I know how you feel! My older brother who is 16 got diagnosed with it about a year ago. He is a super genius, not very social, and sticks with certain hobbies for a long time. Everyone made fun of him because he never talked but its not that he didnt want to talk to them, he just didnt know how. People with Aspergers think a lot differently than other people and so no one exactly can understand what they go through. Since he was getting bullied and made fun of, he couldnt handle it anymore and had a breakdown. The puplic school he went too couldnt meet up to the educational needs of his and the bullying never stopped so the school now has to pay for him to go to a special school that does support his needs. He is doing amazing now and I love him so much. If you girls ever need anyone to talk to, you can comment on my profile <3

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!

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

I have asperger's too. it's not a big deal for me. i am just more awkward than most girls and i talk out loud to myself like a maniac.
by bugsbunny2009 on 1/20/2010 5:59:33 PM
Hey. My little sis was diagnosed with Asperger's when she was two. When she was little, it was really obvious. She began talking later than most kids and walking and all that fun stuff. When she was six, her condition began to improve and her helper was able to leave us forever. Well, today's her eleventh birthday and until recently, she didn't know about the diagnosis. She is just like any other boy or girl in the fifth grade. I really hope the same happens with your brother.
MOD: I swear no boys like me because I'm flat chested. They treat me like a little kid! I'm not; I'm 14 and have already gone through everything puberty related except getting boobs. It's so annoying. I swear boys are shallower than girls.

by purple_stars on 1/19/2010 10:55:14 PM
oh my gosh, I read the promo for this article and clicked on it immediatly. My bro also has aspergers. Although he seems to have a milder case than your bro, he can be really funny sometimes. The whole having problems with interacting with others sometimes makes my brother say really inapropriate things that my family can't help but laugh at. People with aspergers a lot of the time go on to be really out there geniouses. So keep a look out! My bro spells at a college level and is in 5th while I'm in 6th grade and probably spelled a bunch of things wrong in the comment. Keep your head up and clue your friends in. They'll have a better apreciation for you and they might interact with your brother better than you, just because they know what he's going through and they don't live with him.

If you love your brother that's all that matters. If he has behavior problems you should try to teach him from his mistakes. It's not a bad thing that your brother has asperger syndrome.

Luckily, we live in a small town, where everybody knows him and everyone thinks he's a cool dude. he is as happy as can be. I love my little bro, i'll do anything for him.
