A neurological disorder that makes social interaction extremely difficult, like something as simple as starting a conversation with someone you barely know. The cause for it is still unknown, but researchers are still trying to figure out the cause for this form of autism
. Those who have Aspergers Syndrome
are often labeled as odd or eccentric
, because we are used to being in our own world. Since we're usually outcasts in large groups of people, we go towards our interests, in which we are very brilliant at.
Symptoms vary depending on how mild or severe one's case is. People with this condition usually have trouble fitting in, are often the victims of bullying (throughout high school), and happen to have narrow interests on things in which they are very passionate about. For example, they will have a fairly good amount of information concerning movies, trains, geography, puzzles, etc. It'll almost be like they know every single detail about their interest to the point where they have almost a professor or encyclopedia equivalent knowledge about that subject that they know so much about.
If you have it (which I do), have no fear. Although we may be bad at keeping friends and maintaining a conversation, we're gifted in many things that we enjoy the most. Never let this condition get you down, because you are special and have a very bright future to live for.
