Susan Boyle has been diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome.
The Britain’s Got Talent contestant revealed her diagnosis during an interview with The Observer and has called it “a relief“.
“Some articles have said I have brain damage. It’s been something else,” she told the interviewer.
One year ago she decided to see a specialist. “I have always known that I have had an unfair label put upon me,” Boyle explained before revealing that the Scottish specialist discovered that her IQ was above average. “I have Asperger’s.”
Asperger’s, a form of Autism, mainly affects people’s social interaction and communication skills.
The talented singer also revealed that she’s not letting the disorder affect her. “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 greater understanding of who I am and why I do the things I do.”
God bless her.
Stay strong, Susan.
