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!

Heyy, I broke up with my boyfriend awhile ago, but my big brothers still bother me about him! Like, if I tell my bros to go away when I'm using the computer instead of hovering and reading my stuff, they'll say stuff like, "Why, are you chatting with Jack? (thats not his real name but i dont want to reveal it to the world)" I obviously don't like him anymore, and they really get on my nerves!! Please & thank you for your help!!


Hey chickie,

Instead of getting mad or annoyed at them when they do this to you, try talking to them about it out of the blue sometime.  Let them know that you're over the relationship but you still don't want to constantly hear his name brought up in conversation.  Tell them very clearly that you aren't going to get back together with him and you don't like him, so they should stop teasing about it.  Try joking with them that, when you find another crush or BF, they are welcome to talk about him all the time, but be mature and just let them know that it's time to let Jack go.  If that doesn't help, try letting mom and dad in on the problem.  Don't go to them first - you don't wanna be a tattletale - but they might be able to control it a bit better.

Great job for loving him. my brother was diagnosed with it too. but only a slight case cause he has other issues too. and sometimes hes so out of control that it makes me mad. we fight alot but we love eachother alot its a love hate reationship its difficult but i love my bro so much

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.

by jenanne1100 on 2/28/2010 9:20:44 PM


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 Miss Me1023 on 2/28/2010 6:13:54 PM


My friend has trouble in school and is akward in social situations. her mom thinks she has a disability and she is going to get tested. if she is diagnosed with something, how can i make her feel better,and support you without being akward?

Hey girl! Just let her know you are there for her whenever she needs to talk. And leave it at that. Your friend will know and if she needs to talk she'll know you are there for her.

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 Smile <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

by colorCute4 on 1/20/2010 6:58:01 PM


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.

Awww. My Brother Is like that He Is Not Yet Diagnosed. It is very hard - you can't play games with them because they won't understand - you cant move house because he'll get upset. It is soo sad.. You often wonder how they will grow up like...

i feel your pain.... my dad has aspergers syndrome, it's really sad, because they can't really understand emotions or express them. Hamg on there,it might even bring you closer!

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. Smile 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.

by annabean97 on 1/19/2010 10:40:49 PM


hey mod,
I don't feel really close to any of my friends. I don't really have a 'best friend' or a friend that I'm really close to at all! We all hang out at school but out of school we rarely talk on the phone/computer and we rarely ever go out together! I really want to make memories so my friends and I can look back and have good things to talk about us being young when we're older but I'm afraid that I'll end up loosing all of my friends because I'm not that close. What can I do? please please please help!


Hey babes, I am glad you see the importance of having some close friends. They are priceless. The first step is planning stuff that brings all of you together. If you get into the habit of making memories your friends will catch on and appreciate it.  Take a lot of pictures and make scrapbooks for everyone.  xo JANA

alright so me and my bgf has been super close for about six months. me and my boyfriend have been together almost three months. is it wrong to kiss my bgf on the cheek? should i just not do that? or is it totally normal? please and thank you (:


Hey babes, yeah I dont think you should be kissing him, even if its friendly. I only kiss my guy friends on the cheek if they give me a birthday present or when they arrive to meet me somewhere. That is just the polite thing to do. But other than that I dont kiss them because that would be more of a personl/relationship move. xo JANA

by GabbyRocks1010 on 1/19/2010 9:21:06 PM


Mod Mod Mod!!!!!
i got myself into a real pickle! so im in 8th grade and there is a freshman boy on my bus named allen who is my BFF's brother. so one day i (jokingly) asked him out. he said no way and i said good because i don't want to go out with you either! the next morning he got on the bus and said, "hey girlfriend" so jokingly said, "hey boyfriend" back to him. well it went on for a while and then he started saving me seats and such. then one day out of no wear he starts bragging to people on the bus that we are in a "serious" relationship. he said that we had kissed and had sex and all kinds of stuff that him and i have never done! he took everything i said and twisted my words to make it sound gross and perverted! it really got on my nerves and was giving me a bad rep, so me and my friends came up with a plan to get him off my back. we made up a fake boyfriend for me named "Tommy". We brought up my "boyfriend" the next day on the bus. allen completely ignored the comments. we realized it wouldn't work. but we decided to still say i had a bf just in case we could use it later. well today at lunch my BFF accidentally made a loud comment about my "boyfriend' at lunch and all the boys heard. so they started teasing me about it. my friends told me just ignore them and that i had to pretend i actually had a bf. so i did. now i have all this drama buzzing around me and half of it is fake. heres my questions: 1.should i tell people that i broke up with "tommy" so they will get off my back, or should i just come out and say he was fake? 2. how do i get allen to stop with all the perverted stuff?
thx soooooooo much mod!
-Liz <3


Hi doll, the RIGHT thing to do would be to come clean but kids are going to tease you about it. I would just not say anything and people will forget about it. If you pretend you have a boyfriend you will make the hole even bigger and you will be even more stressed. xo JANA

MODERATOR!!!!!!!!! Thanks Megan! When I told my Mom this, she said the same thing! lol

by bombergirl97 on 1/19/2010 8:40:54 PM


MODERATOR!!!!! I have two questions. 1. I feel like I'm the only mature person in my class! All of the rest of my classmates are rude and mean! Most of the 5th graders (I'm in sixth grade) want to hang out with me. They always say that I'm more nice and more mature than the rest of the sixth graders. There's always horseplay, smack talk, cussing, and bad grades. I never do that. Why do you think I feel this way?
2. I got highlights on Saturday. There's this VERY rude girl in my class that said,"you got higlights and you're only 12!!!!" in a VERY rude voice and a mean look on her face. It sorta sounded like I didn't deserve them. Before this, she said that if I color my hair, she'll get mad. What should I do?

Hey babe! Try not to let that girl who commented about your hair bother you. To be honest, she's probably just jealous of you! That's what it sounds like!  They may be immature now, but they'll catch up eventually. For now, hang with the people who are the nicest and most genuine. Ignore the others!

by livelaughlove4eva23 on 1/19/2010 7:43:11 PM


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.

by jfkjfk123 on 1/19/2010 7:20:12 PM


So sorry, girlie! I would be devastated if this happened to my bro.


by jonasNtwilight3 on 1/19/2010 7:17:04 PM


Well, Aspergers is a high-functioning form of autism so it could be worse Smile But yeah I have a sister w/ special needs so I know how much it sucks too.

by chic chick on 1/19/2010 7:04:13 PM


Alright, so I've been best best friends with this guy for years now. he's seen me at my worst, been there for me through tough times, and is always on my side. He's always been protective of me, and has always stood up for me, even when i don't deserve it. After a particularly tough break up, he came over and played his guitar for me to make me feel better. He's never liked any of my boyfriends and now I know why. He has feelings for me. Problem is.. i don't feel that way about him. I've been with someone for about a month, and he's great and i really love him. What do i do bout my bgf... I want him in my life still but i feel selfish keeping him around when its hurting him! i love him but not the way he loves me... help!!!

Hey babe! It's good you realize that keeping him around is hurting him.  Try to give him some space, continue to be friends with him, but make sure you're spending more time with your bf than your best guy friend.  Have you read Twilight? this is similar to Bella's initial dilemma with Jacob.

For some reason my profile is moderating...why? I created it a while ago so it's modding for that reason...I haven't been rude or started fights at all on this sight. All I did was change my icon but I do that a lot and it never moderates from it. Do you know why it's modding?? Thank you SO much (:


Hey girl!

One of the editors probably has the answer to that so if you want, you can contact them by clicking on the link. Your profile should be done moderating in about 2-3 days anyways and after that you'll be good! Liz R.

I know what you're going through, my little brother has Down Syndrome. He has had it his whole life, so we've learned what helps him. 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.
