Here's a free section for you to read. This is from Chapter 1, Section 3: What is Asperger's Syndrome.

Many people don’t know what the syndrome is, and over the past few years, so much resources have come
across about it. Yet we need to ask this question, as one point, to the people around us because this
is really the major point when dealing with social dilemmas or stigmatization.

Let’s start off by characterizing the syndrome. Asperger’s syndrome is stress, selfishness, extreme
sensitivity and stimulants, close-mindedness, excitement, pressure, and isolating. Would you want to
jump on a bull and go around in circles? I don’t think so! Do you want to see yourself biting a girl
in the arm and going crazy in this tense breakout? Nope! How about persistently occupying yourself to
the computer, no social chats, and then you end up harassing girls on your particular join of being
adapted to what girls do on their own and you yet to speak? Not the kind that us grownups want to see!

Kids, or people, that may be your age, would not necessarily understand you much, and that’s why they
need family intervention a lot, as well as you. But if you are old enough to speak out loud what you
are and what is it that’s making you feel not so adapted to everyone else, be my guest and speak up.
Nothing is going to stop you other than yourself.

The syndrome is no longer defined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, as
shown from this article on the National Post
(http://life.nationalpost.com/2012/12/04/aspergers-syndrome-to-be-dropped-from-mental-disorders-manual-dsm-v/)
published in October 2012. The new edition of the manual has been released one month before this
book was published [May 2013].

Regardless of the syndrome not being in the newest versions of DSM after the fourth, there isn’t a
single definition of it. Sure, people have different ways of expressing the definition, but sometimes
words don’t show the truth. They may not even be precise or coherent at all. If you, as an aspie, have
someone who says “permanent blues,” for example, you know that it is false because you don’t feel negative
forever. You will occasionally have times where you’ll feel cheerful and happy, and I can guarantee this.
Just take one step at a time and you’ll be there. They’re either making a false statement to discourage
you, or just to get attention.

On the contrary, let me give you my generalized description of the syndrome. It’s a mental disorder where
your senses are overpowered and you happen to express symptoms such as lack of speech, no care giving for
social or emotional purposes, anxiety, and some other symptoms that will be discussed in a moment.

As you progress through the book, you’ll learn on how to adapt yourself for more control over the troubles
instead of sticking with the facts and leaving you to do what you wish with no boundaries. Besides, at young
ages, we tend not to think the relative advantages of being aided by others; you’re looking at the
perspective of one who has been aided by rehab educators and is now revealing his latest project.

Bear with me on this project, and pretty soon you’ll say, “I need help with this,” or, “Oh! I get it!
Now it’s time to help people with the syndrome out.”

So, why don’t we start discussing the symptoms of the disorder and then later, discuss them in more detail?
The next section will give you a generalized idea of what the syndrome is about, and then in Chapter 2,
you’ll see the specifics. Here we go!


I'll be waiting for you in the immense world I've put together...
