Is there a cure?
I am aware that there is treatment for Aspergers Syndrome, though I've had therapy and drugs in the past, which have not helped.
But I would be interested in finding out whether there are cures, because I would rather be like other NT people and get on with life more or less than to carry on suffering like this with this condition and its cause (s) and effects.
Of course, the ultimate cure for all ailments is suicide. I don't think that the panacea of knowledge will help here, but how would I go about doing that and post-poning the suicide?
If there was a cure I would take it and I think I am not alone in that.
And treatment? Drugs, talking therapies? They don't work for everyone and, according to clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson, may make things worse. I think it did in my case.
One other option, or another possible way to get a cure, is to individualise the condition and that means draw the vitality out of the condition, by denying that I have it, and going back to the diagnostic clinician and telling them that they got it wrong, and then excise the whole condition and go about as before just thinking that I am stupid. So where would that leave me? Is it possible to yank myself out of it in this way? Is thinking that I'm stupid and therefore "need to buck up my ideas and possibly bend over to receive a good old rocket up.." better than thinking I have a neurological condition that needs to be addressed, but cannot be addressed?
