Aspergers

One issue is that Asperger's hasn't been widely tested for until recently (90's). So many 25+ year olds may have been diagnosed as having ADD or similar and be treated accordingly, or they have adapted themselves in such a way that their actual Asperger's traits have become minimized (in other words: learned to live with it). To have a proper diagnosis as an adult is difficult because of these reasons. If you need more info, check out http://www.nas.org.uk/.

As for the badge, etc., there's a T-shirt "I've got Asperger's; What's your problem?" out there Otherwise, use your imagination. Aspies are good at that

I've always suspected I might suffer from mild Asperger's Syndrome; not enough to affect my life significantly though.

This is useful:

Just curious, does anyone have this? I wonder if I do, and if so if there is a badge or sticker or big hat I can get?
