Many ways: Be sure of the diagnosis. You should be under the care of a doctor & therapist experienced in treating aspies. Take pride in your individuality. Talk to other aspies. See <http://aspergeradults.Ca/2010/02/is-self-help-effective-for-asperger-syndrome/> many aspies have unique abilities that can be capitalized on. Mostly love yourself.

Expect the best: Help facilitate success. You have to want more for your life. Many "aspies" can live full &fulfilling lives, given proper encouragement, opportunities and treatment. And there are new toys, treatments & experiences being developed all the time for such children. Adults also have more support & knowledgeable professional help available now than ever. Either way, there is much joy available to you.

Aspire rule! With some serious social skills training, and some smart choices, you have a considerable advantage over your unfocused peers.

Lots of pluses: Choose your focus. Tech, science and math win. Comics, superstition, and train schedules lose. If you can tolerate being single, it is a HUGE plus. Find a strength or fitness sport rather than a teamwork / coordination sport. Get guidance on how to talk to people. Aspies do best if they only say nice things. Welcome to the community of folks who are different but happy.
