    Yes you can cure yourself to a degree, By studying psychology and social skills intensely for a couple of years I finally cured myself. It cannot be cured by means of medicine, only by comprehending social skills and destroying fear.

    You cannot cure Asperger syndrome to the degree of abandoning your means of learning, in that you will always want to learn independently and indepth naturally. This will constantly be latent.

    Be aware that this is my belief and there is a stark divide in psychology whether it can be cured or not. Therefore you will meet people who agree it can be cured, or people who refute this notion.
    You haven't cured yourself. You've just learnt to adapt.

    The people in the OP who cured themselves definitely did not do this. Neither does the NAS recommend this approach.

    What particular psychology and social skills resources did you use? There are thousands out there and nobody really knows which are effective and which are useless or even harmful. Most are American.

    While genetic factors are believed to contribute to the development of Asperger syndrome, no related genes have been confirmed. It is unclear whether certain gene variations that are being studied in other autism spectrum disorders will play a role in Asperger syndrome. It appears likely that a combination of genetic variations and environmental factors influence the development of this complex condition.
