Brother with Asperger's, advice please

Hey everybody, has anyone had experience with Aspergic people and can help me?


Here's the issue, it's quite difficult, and I'd like some advice with it:


My brother's in his mid-thirties, never been employed, has no friends, lives at home with my mother & grandmother and spends his days reading, walking in nature or watching opera.

Benefits of Diagnosis

I have suffered from selective eating throughout my life (40 years), and promised my wife that I would disclose this to my GP to ascertain if I should be taking any dietary supplements.

I was somewhat shocked to be quizzed about autism traits and was referred to an adult autism clinic for which I am still waiting on an appointment.

I have since undertaken several screening tests online which indicate that some of my peculiar ...

Group conversations

I was diagnosed with Aspergers when I was almost 16, which is kinda late I guess, and it wasn't really that much of a surprise except in the beginning because I had always felt different in some way but could never really figure out why. For years I noticed that my friends and classmates could easily talk to each other, talk to strangers, ask for help and talk in front of the class, while I ...

Is this woman real or not?

I messaged a woman on a dating site. My very first message was fine, but, after she responded, my next message was a big rant complaining about another woman that rejected me the previous day, and then a long rant how no woman ever gives me a chance. She said "hey I am giving you a chance". Anyway, to make long story short, we became official within a day. IF THATS TRUE that looks great: ...

How Can I Live Harmoniously With My Aspie Husband?

I really need for my husband and I to make changes before it's too late.
He's very fussy about small details, how can I cope with this? He's always trying to 'educate me' on better ways of doing things.

Can anyone give some advice on how to live harmoniously?

What can ...
