Some people might think a diagnosis like this would be heartbreaking… but not Susan Boyle!
In fact, the diagnosis that came her way just last year of having Asperger's Syndrome (which is a developmental disorder that's a form of autism) has helped her in many ways, and she totally counts it as a blessing!
The Britain's Got Talent phenom said this:
"I was told I had brain damage. I always knew it was an unfair label. Now I have a clearer understanding of what's wrong and I feel relieved and a bit more relaxed about myself."
Which is F-A-B FAB!
We bet there's a little relief, for sure — especially when you can look at it as a "greater understanding" of yourself!
We're just so happy she's taking it in stride and using it as a positive force in her life! Inspiring!
