It took 43 years to find that I had Aspergers. A former doctor said that I had it. It started to make sense but there were still many problems in my life at that time. I sure hated this blasted social world. Going from one service to another. The main problem was copping it from the neurotypicals in this world. It was very painful to go there. I have being there to experience it first hand. I have worked as a clerk, accounts payable clerk, data entry clerk, despatch clerk & promotions officer. That’s my work history as brief as I can describe it. Achieve a lot without even knowing that I had Aspergers. I have had other diagnoses for more than a decade.It was being a schizo at first then it was an anxiety disorder leading to Aspergers. Thank god for that. I am alive to have the right label. I know the pitfalls too well & the advantages are present too. I am more than aware of Aspergers & self aware too. There have being many times that I didn’t even know who I was. Life does go on for me. I am in mid life now & still have a lot to experience in the future. I call my life at present a work in progress.
