If there was a pill that when taken would permanently cure you of your aspergers and make you a normal NT person would you take it? (and i know the idea of aspergers being treated like a disease is ridiculous but just curious to hear what others have to say)

I'm not Aspie though my 10 y/o is, as is my husband. If either of them took a pill then they wouldn't be them ... I love them for their non NT traits - not in spite of them. I'm hoping to help both of them to love themselves for the same reasons. They're special.

I have spent my life learning to accept me as I am... a cure? Naw... I don't need to start over. I am ok the way I am. Who's to say I would like myself if I was cured lol. I am honest.. loyal to a fault... determined and artistic... Would I be those things if cured? As I can't see myself as any way but how I am now.. I am gonna say no to any cure :)

hmmm, why is there always this ideal of making people "better"? So basically no I don't want a cure there is nothing wrong with me, just a label others put on me.

No way. I don't see why you would want a cure for something that makes you what you are, even if it is different.

No thanks. I'd rather be myself and celebrate my autism and all the kinks that come along with it.
