I am 48 male and just had couples therapist due to communication issues between myself and my wife. I never felt she understood me because I never show empathy. She labelled me a sociopath but I have conscience. She labelled me a narcissist but I am not entitled or self absorbed. Turns out I have high functioning Asperger’s!!! Wow. Everything in my life makes total sense now! Huge relief. We can now communicate far better. We both understand me and our relationship has improved over night!! :) I am very intelligent so how come it took so long!! How is it my mother and the medical community not figure this out with my development issues as a young child. I always knew I was different but never knew the why? Can anyone else here relate?
