Comments: I have been angry with my family, the world, my friends, my coworkers, until last year, through strange experiences, I found out that I have Aspergers Syndrome and so does my only younger brother and so did my mother who passed away about 5 years ago. By finding out I could finaly understand the dynamics in my life and be able to re-unite with my brother, my friends, and better cope with my coworkers, clients, etc. It was truly a revelation that opened the door to all the pain and confusion that I had experienced in my life. Thanks!
