Well my cousin has Asperger syndrome and that isn't very nice. He's 15-years old and he has beaten his own mother/my aunt a couple of times, and it wasn't very easy for her to commit her son. Asperger syndrome is not a very nice condition but thankfully it can be controlled with medication & therapy. My cousin has now had therapy for about a year and he actually seems like he's a totally different person now.

Here's some info on Asperger syndrome:

right. There are several types of borderline. What I refer to here is magic thinking, rituals during the day, screaming. Ive been living with one for 5 yrs now. Just wanted to share ideas and suggestions with someone who has a similar experience.

I was recently in the local health center and it was not fun nor did it help.

Well Darkmb I'd like you to try and live with someone who is constantly screaming and switching water on and off thousands of times every other hour and then switching lights on and off like crazy because he believes that is the way he can make the world love him. He goes to bed at 340 am every night because he can't help it. He sleeps with a hammer under his bed and locks his door everytime. Thats just 2 or 3 %.

MOVE OUT! That's my advice, 2 or 3% of the time is 2/3% too much.
