|Susan Boyle Susan Boyle said she could now "better understand" |
herself after the diagnosis
Scottish singer Susan Boyle has revealed she has been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome.
The star, who shot to fame after appearing on Britain's Got Talent in 2009, had spent years believing she suffered slight brain damage at birth.
In an interview with The Observer newspaper she told of her relief at finally getting a "clearer understanding" of her condition.
But she vowed: "It will not make any difference to my life."
Asperger's is a form of autism which typically means people with the condition struggle with their emotions and have difficulty in social situations, often unable to pick up on non-verbal cues.
Boyle, 52, revealed she was misdiagnosed after complications at birth. (...)
