Re: aspergers

My brother also has this, but he is 30. He went through a serious rough patch because he refused to go to therapy and stopped taking anti-depressants (he has a really hard time expressing his feelings and depressed and suicidal). Now since going to therapy regularly and going to group meetings he is able to live on his own, has a girlfriend and has a job. I think going to group meetings and talking to others with it has helped him a lot. Everyone in the family has a better understanding, too. But he is off of the anti-depressants, too now! He is living much better. Therapy and group meetings are huge! I don't like meds and they made him act just not himself.
