If you're going to tell me that I can and should get disability benefits....

by just claiming my Asperger's Syndrome, and even go so far as telling me that it would be stupid for me not to, than you're going to have to do something for me.  Provide me with evidence of someone with Asperger's Syndrome who is already getting disability benefits.  My requirements are only that this person must be living in Canada(I don't care where), he/she must actually have AS, NOT classic autism; they must also be able to speak in full sentences, and able to walk in a straight line; they must also be at or over 25 years of age.  I am making this challenge because I have just about had it with hearing, again and again, that I can and should get disability benefits, and that I am irresponsible for not trying, when the truth is, that I have tried, under pressure from my parents, more than once...I've tried three times, actually.  Each time, I've either been denied, or I've fallen through one of the many, many cracks that exist to screen out the scammers....except I'm no scammer.  Oh yeah, and I just found out that lots of other people, with Asperger's Syndrome, who are around my age and older, also have trouble getting help.  So really, my reality is, that even though I have trouble finding a job that I can actually DO, let alone support myself with, I still cannot get any kind of financial assistance or benefits.
