I haven't been diagnosed with that but I have been with other stuff.  I have ADD and dyslexia, some people think I must be stupid because of it.  If I get higher marks on a test or in a class people assume it's because the teachers take pity on me or try to make the class easier for me.  The only bonus I get is extra time to do work because it just takes longer for me to write, read and get my thoughts down on paper.  It just makes me mad when some people find out about it and then treat me completely different for it.
