Example text

I can converse with neurotypical people for several hours without too much difficulty. If I have to talk for much longer than this, I find that I get tired mentally. I know the signs for this now, and I try to find an excuse to leave the conversation or the group. I can identify with the following extract from an online magazine article: At one end of the spectrum are people who retreat into their own world…at the other are those with ‘high-functioning autism’ who, though they lack some degree of intuition about what others are thinking, can often figure things out through logical analysis, a ‘human-hacking’ process not unlike the efforts of Mr.

Perhaps this too, has put some people off me. I might go for a drive alone or go shopping alone, or even on holiday alone, and I am not worried travelling alone in the car to far away places. So what might have helped? Another way I have met people is through specialized interest groups. Again these are people that I have more distant friendships with as I don’t tend to see them that often, perhaps monthly at meetings, but it could be more or less often depending on what it is I am doing. No matter what hobby you have there are probably others with similar interests who will meet up to discuss their hobbies, or on the internet chat rooms.

Ross, P. E. (2006) ‘When Engineers’ Genes Collide. IEEE Spectrum Online. org/oct0614665. Accessed 27 February 2007. L. Pottage Introduction by Luke Beardon There is so much that could be noted about this powerful chapter; however, I think it is best to let it speak for itself. A superb account of what is, frighteningly and sadly, not a unique experience. No one can make up for the lost years of misunderstanding and of the subsequent loneliness before a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome and, believe me, being misunderstood has caused me much heartache and despair, the side effects being an addiction to food and to a lesser degree an addiction to alcohol.
