So after my very stressful event I exhibited much more obvious symptoms of aspergers. I kind of feel like it wasn't aspergers then as it had a cause and it was later in life. But your saying aspergers can be made worse by a stressful event, because I really do display the symptoms now? Now it could be that I actually did display aspergers symptoms early on I'm just not qualified enough to spot them though.

That is correct --you can manifest the symptoms over time due to the stressful events in life. You should see a psychologist experienced in asperger's diagnosis for proper evaluation.
