Do you guys (and girls) find aspergers to be more of a gift or more of a curse in your daily life?

Neither. No one gave it to me, so it's not a gift. But it's not a curse for me either. It just exists.

I don't know whether it's a gift or a curse.. I don't know any different, so it's just "normal" to me.

somtimes i HATE being like this with a passion...

but then there ARE advantages... i cannot deny that.

if i was given the chance to be 'cured' but eliminate both the good and the bad, i would turn it down... i shudder at the fact of becoming so mentaly limited after being like this... and for what? superficial friends and a 'normal' life? too many NT's moan about that kind of life for me to want it....

but if i could have the best of both.....

Both.

I think it depends a lot on the circumstances (sociocultural environment, family, luck, and so on) . Depending on those an Aspie can become either Einstein or commit suicide (two poles of a continuum). The more the bright side is enhanced (in a socially valuable manner) the better (and viceversa).

As for myself, right now (finally, after years of struggling) I'm "just" a girlfriend away from being 100 % ok [but I know that will NOT be easy, since she would have to be a (very) weird one]. Hoping is free though :wink:

I see it as a curse sometimes.

Haha OK. Well, in that case, it is a curse. I don't think God would ever give me a gift. 8)
