I am not shy about answering questions having to do with the neuro-biological disorder known as Autism (this includes the scope of all autism diagnoses, including Asperger's or other terms people use like "low" or "high" functioning). I am a person diagnosed with autistic disorder. I have been a guest on panels in order to educate the public about living with autism. I can give you my opinion about anything you may wonder, either to dispose of myths or stigmas surrounding this "difference", or just to give another perspective or idea. I plan to approach this post with the idea that you are helping me out and not just the other way around. Sometimes I like to be a part of what's going on, though it is often difficult for me, because I say awkward things or rub people the wrong way. At least on this thread we all know the situation up front.
