I'm 17 and I believe I have aspergers. I want to keep this short, so believe me when I say I good reasons to suspect so. I'd like to discuss the benefits and drawbacks of being diagnosed with this condition. It's worth mentioning that I think I can make it on my own at this point, as I've spent a lifetime coping and learning social skills. It sounds like a diagnosis would make life easier, but my concerns are that it'll automatically exclude me from certain professions, jobs etc.. That it may make it difficult to acquire insurance, that I could be seen as a liability. Thoughts, opinions, and advice are appreciated.
