Hello @gingerw

I see that you posted the article from the Mighty about what autism feels like a couple of years ago. As I just read it today, I'm amazed at the complexities of living in an autistic world. Thank you for the insight!

As I've read the comments from @mamacita and @sirgalahad I'm touched by their feelings of hurt and embarrassment. Auties deserve a special word of praise for your accomplishments and your sensitive natures.

I appreciate the view of your world as you see it. It has made me a better person.

@hopeful33250 Teresa, blessings to you for understanding our hurdles. As auties, this quirk to our nature is manifested in so many different ways. Not everyone "gets" that. We can appear to be neurotypical to most of the population, most of the time; sometimes only another autie will recognize the small signs of discomfort. It's not easy to be neurodiverse in this loud, high pressure neurotypical world!
