In brief: ASD

Asperger's syndrome falls into autistic spectrum disorder. It does not have language and cognitive delays.
There are more social interaction problems, cognitive behavior therapy can help you.

In brief: A non-disease?

Asperger's is being dropped as a diagnosis among most mainstream physicians.
The focused mind's a gift if wisely used. The real question is whether you can learn to do something that's harder for you than most other people -- read other folks, relate to them, interact more easily and naturally. This can be taught by today's methods -- and who wants a diagnosis of a mental illness?
