I might seem a little different to you. This is because I have Aspergers Syndrome. It is named after Dr. Hans Asperger who first noticed the traits in children. Having Aspergers does not mean I am stupid. I am very intelligent, but I don't understand people. I don't know why people say things they don't mean. For example, they say come to my house any time, and when I go to their house they say why have you come at this time? Sometimes people think I am rude. I don't mean to be rude. Being rude is not good. My mother said there are only good people and the bad people in the world and I am a good person...
