I appreciate this greatly. It wasn't until I was in my mid-50s that I realized my mother had Asperger's. It changed my life. It made me realize that she has a disability, that she loved me as she could, but not in the way that built my strong ego and self esteem. But, it was the best she could do. It wasn't me. Realizing this has let me let go of anger and resentment, and has allowed me to develop an appreciation of who she is and has made us closer. She has had her own struggles to go through and though I wish I had been the cherished child of my fantasies, my suffering has been minimal compared to the lot of many people. I have come to appreciate those with asperger's as having unique insights, wisdom, and a really great sense of humor.
