Living with my Aspie Sibling

Hi,

My brother is an undiagnosed Aspie. His doctor once asked him, when my brother was seeing him for a completely different reason, if he had ever been screened for Aspergers. My brother was very offended.

A very good friend of my brother's recently told him he suspected my brother was a high-functioning aspie. (His friend reads a lot!) That's when my brother finally realized 2 people couldn't be totally wrong. At the very least, they were seeing something he wasn't.

Anyway, I say all this as a means of introduction. I love my brother very much but sometimes communicating is a very touchy issue.

I hope the support group here is a thriving one and hope we can all connect online soon.
