    Hey,

    Ok so i have a few friends with aspergus, as nice as they are it can be a tad frustrating so when i spend more than a few days with them, i start pulling my hair our lol, but they're lovely people and close friends.

    However, i have a friend who's dad, brother and grandad all have the syndrome, and recently it's clicked with me maybe he does aswell, but on a mild level.

    For example he doesn't understand shared enjoyments and achievements, banter and why people do certain things. More importantly he lacked emotional recipocity...an issue which eventually broke us up. I'm just wondering, as he's probably reading this..:p: those who have friends, brothers etc with autism or asperger syndrom, how you deal with your relatonships...?

    I have relations with it, but all of different spectrums of it. I didn't know anything about it until my uncle told me of his diagnosis, and now it makes a lot of sense. I'd like to think it explains the way my mum acted.

    But anyway, although it hasn't been proven yet, it's hypothesised that sometimes aspects of the disorder get passed on rather than the whole disease. So he might not have it...I don't know.

    It's a teeny bit harder with my uncle, but it doesnn't make much difference in my eyes, I'm living with himand we're fine

    Asperger's. When I read the title I was like WTF Asparagus? :rolleyes:

    My best friend's brother has autism so I know him quite well and have basically grown up with him. I've never felt frustrated, and I think he's a wonderful person. I don't think about it, he is who he is. :shifty:

    Well I can only say that my brother's got pretty severe autism and he's very different from a normal person. He doesn't talk that much and hes pretty cute coz his english is kinda broken (i think partially due to the fact my mom would speak broken english to him/punjabi mos tof hte time). but its awesome, i never have any problems anymore. when i was yunger wed fight over the TV and what he want he got so yeah but nowadays hes matured and im matured so like.. theres no problems really. aspurgers i guess is different in that sense. also hes my brother so its a different story XD

    My brother has Asperger's. You've just got to match their logic step for step or they fly off the handle. Our relationship's come a long way over the last few years- actually getting him to admit he disliked our parents as much as me was a massive step.

    Patience and logic. In gigantic dollops.

    I also have AS. I cannot socialise easily, and I get paranoid when I see that other people notice I am weird, so I just give up and rarely bother to talk to people nowadays.
