I was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome six years ago when I was forty seven years old. Asperger's syndrome is a lifelong condition which the medical experts say is a form of autism, but I don't agree with this conclusion.
Because of the condition, and my personal circumstances, I have found it very difficult to find a place for myself in the world. I've been lost and lonely all my life, and not had much money for long periods of time. Financially, things are much better now than they were before my diagnosis...but I'm still alone, bored, and unfulfilled.
