Former Britain’s Got Talent sensation Susan Boyle has revealed that she is dealing with Asperger’s Syndrome. Who knew?
In a new interview with Britain’s Observer, she revealed that she saw a specialist a year ago and was told that she has Asperger’s along with an above average IQ. She was previously told that she suffered brain damage at birth which led to learning difficulties as a child.
She said, “I have always known that I have had an unfair label put upon me. Now that I have a clearer understanding of what’s wrong and I feel relieved and a bit more relaxed about myself.”
She went on to say, “I would say I have relationship difficulties, communicative difficulties, which lead to a lot of frustration. If people were a bit more patient, that would help. Asperger’s doesn’t define me. It’s a condition that I have to live with and work through, but I feel more relaxed about myself. People will have a much greater understanding of who I am and why I do the things I do.”
