Any reason to?: Nobody really knows what asperger's is, it's diagnosed by criteria that a mental health expert knows how to apply, there is no specific treatment, and these people (who enjoy many plusses) get the most benefit from being educated about other people, leaning to observe and interact more skillfully with others. With no magic bullet to cure, perhaps kindness and understanding's what are really needed.

Perhaps the most important thing that an Aspie can learn is that relationships are more important than being right. This may be good advice for all three of us. Best wishes.
