When I googled the terms “suicide” and “asperger’s”, I was surprised at how frequently the subject seemed to be treated with confusion – why would a person with Asperger’s feel driven to suicide? To me, the answer to this is obvious. The need to bond with others is a basic human need. The very definition of Asperger’s is to have trouble fulfilling that need. So why is it surprising that someone with these difficulties might fall into despair? Quoted from the link.
