Aspergers and Anxiety

Aspergers and Anxiety

Adults with Asperger Syndrome (AS) are individuals who do not have an intellectual impairment but often face co-occurring conditions such as anxiety, depression, psychosocial and functional issues.

Often they hear that they are lazy, overreacting, just don’t want to try, that they are shy or that they need a push. But in actuality they are unable to do something, are too stressed, are on the verge of a panic attack or their anxiety will not let their body do something right now.
