Why is an Ativan injection used?

Hi. I have a question regarding medications that I can t find online. I was given Ativan injections when I was 3 months old by a hospital intern without my mother s knowledge or consent. My mother has told this led to me developing Aspberger s disorder not long afterwards. Is this true, or even possible? I m an identical twin and my sister never developed anyhting remoetly resembling autism or aspberger s.
