I was diagnosed with Asperger's just a few years before they eliminated it as being separate from others on the autism spectrum.
I think I was diagnosed with Aspergers the year they changed it or a year before they did. My mother had difficultly accepting the diagnosis so two years later she had me tested again. Guess what? ASD positive, HFA. More people seem to know what I'm talking about when I say Aspergers so If I tell anyone I say that I have Aspergers not ASD. So much stigma and ignorance in regards to ASD.
