I was diagnosed with Asperger's as 12 year old and ever since then, I have refused to accept that I have it. I'm constantly being told that because I have one or two symptoms of it, I should just go along with it and disclose it to Universities and Prospective Employers, as legally they have to have some people who have disabilities on their books but it makes me feel uneasy.

Any tips? I know that I have Dyslexia, I had an assessment done when I was about 5 or 6 through my primary school, but I don't believe that I have Asperger's. I've seen people who have got it and I'm nothing like them in severity or in symptoms.
