Aspergers used to plague my life, now it is just an obstacle with some days worse than others.
Relationships are near impossible to form. Knowing what to say, how to pick up vibes, and how to overall interact with people is incredibly difficult and a challenge every confrontation of the day. Plus, social anxiety seems to go hand in hand with Aspergers. Worried about saying the wrong things or doing something stupid.
My Aspergers is much better than most peoples which that is a blessing in itself, but it is still a challenge. I never had an actual girlfriend. I did FINALLY lose my virginity at age 20 to another virgin which was critical, but it took a lot of sweat, tears, and agony in the process which was almost to the point of having to sell my soul to get that. A lot of near death experiences, me going in and out of hospitals after overdosing, having to drink down charcoal and throw it back up to absorb the meds I OD'd on, and spending some time in the ICU.
When people can just get sex and attract a girl and get dates like it was a snap of the fingers. I had to be almost like Jesus Christ and walk on water before I ever got a girl.

You compare Aspergers to cancer? That's very stupid. Cancer kills you, Aspergers doesn't.
I have aspergers and my life is damn good. Well, maybe because my case isn't as bad as others like you said for yourself... I have had no problems with my love-life, as I've had two girlfriends before. You just got to get used to handling intimacy. Social anxiety yes, that used to be a problem for me, I had difficulty making new friends and approaching people for the first time. But after some time of getting used to with certain people, you begin to feel more comfortable.
I agree, having aspergers makes life difficult. But don't ever compare that with a fatal disease. If you think about it, you could have been born with something MUCH worse.0
