Could you tell me a little about Asperger's and how it works? I have a cousin (he's 33) who I'm not really close to but I'm very fond of. He is always doing things that just PO most people (hence the reason we're not close) like saying things that he KNOWS will tick them off. One great example is that he called me and told me he planned to wear white to my wedding since it was his birthday. When I told him I wasn't ok with that, he kept harping on the subject (calling, emailing, texting, etc) until I told him I didn’t care what he wore. Then he didn’t come to the wedding (no call no show)
My aunt (his mother) is always saying that the reason he does some of the things he does/says is because he has Asperger’s and it makes him say/do things that are inappropriate or annoying but he can’t help himself.
To be honest, I never accepted that as a good reason for his actions/comments because he hasn’t been like this for his whole life nor has he been officially diagnosed with anything.
