Asperger's Syndrome

I just read up a bit on Asperger's Syndrome, and one of the symptoms is a persistent interest in certain topics like say, mathematics!!

Visit my website http://www.geocities.com/asperger_sg and try out the diagnostic tests and see if you have AS!

Re: Asperger's Syndrome

Good collection, wcy.

But what's in a name? We are all a collection of skills: social, intellectual, physical. Perhaps there should be a syndrome for people who are excessively social, and lacking intellectual focus?

In the Wikipedia it is called a "A gift and a curse", what are your feelings about it?

Re: Asperger's Syndrome

The world is full of normal people, why not be exceptional?

And don't believe people when they say how you should be ... you are in charge of how you are.
