It depends on the severity of it how hard it can be. I have mild Asperger's myself, and while my teenage years were extremely difficult, in my adult life I've managed to control most of it, appear "normal" to most people, and generally have it easy. However, my son by contrast has a much deeper case, he's currently classified as Pervasive Developmental Disorder (Not Otherwise Specified) (PDD-NOS), and he's having trouble learning to speak, socialize, or imagine. He's three now, and he's been in therapy since he was two, and he's getting better, but I don't forsee his life reaching the same quality of life I've been able to achieve, and it makes me sad.Seriously though, coming from first-hand experience, kudos to that guy for getting in front of that crowd and asking that question! I find it hard to speak in front of 5 people, let alone a few thousand!
