That's my point. It didn't exist but I was displaying all the symptoms of asperger at the time. So I was born with asperger. I just wasn't diagnosed with it until I was an adult. Autism isn't generally something you would get as an adult. It's something that you were born with. That's why when they make the diagnoses they read and study behavior that was displayed as a child.
