During pregnancy there was something wrong with the protein content, it was too high. The doctors wanted my mom to have her baby immediately but she refused to their advices and wanted to have a normal birth. But my birth was not quite normal, I had to be put out by a special device, a vacuum extractor. I still have a damage on my head from this.

Although I recognize autistic traits in my family history, I also had a difficult birth. I became tangled in my cord and was delivered by an emergency C-section. I was then placed in an incubator. I believe that the genetics in my family along with my birth issues caused my Asperger's.

Is it wrong to be optimistic about something so traumatic as my birth? :?
