Hello, my name is Jake. Otherwise known here as ShadowLurker343, I am the founder of this Wiki.
Below is my story about when I got diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome and how it's affected my life.
This is going to be my story from start to finish,
I got diagnosed with Aspergers at the age of 12. At first, I was very happy about it. It answered a lot of my questions as to why I struggled so much with my life and social interactions. However, that happiness very quickly continued into something more sinister. I was denying I had Aspergers, trying my hardest to appear as 'normal' and it was making me very, very unhappy.
I very quickly got very unhappy and felt depressed because I was 'different' and couldn't communicate properly with any of my friends. Whenever I did, it was usually arguing with the occasional happiness.
At 17 years of age (present), I have gradually come to learn more about Aspergers and have learnt way to cope with my issues. However, this is not always the case and I of course end up arguing with fellow friends. (This of course happens daily) just not as much as it used to.
Today, I still continue to suffer with the difficulties that Aspergers faces. But, with help from family, friends and a college who cares, I'm slowly starting to improve with my social interactions. However, I will never improve completely.
I made this Wiki in hope that my experience can help others with the same problems and that other members of the community can all share their stories with us and give advice about what you done to be helped throughout your life.
Well, there it is. My story. I will be updating regularly.
