I was diagnosed with AS sometime in the late 90s between the ages of 12 and 14 (not sure when). I had problems with depression, teasing, wanting to be normal, etc. It wasn't until my Junior year of high school that i began to research AS for myself (my parents and doctors didn't do a very good job of explaining it to me). I slowly crept out of depression (its been about two years since i last felt depressed). I realized i wasn't alone. I began to accept myself for who I am and who God made me to be. So for me personally, if they find a cure, I will NEVER take it. I love who i am. God made me this way for a reason, why mess up his plan. I was wondering what other Aspies thought. If you are Aspie, would you want to be cured?
