      Hello & welcome.
      "Euclid was right...?"
      Most people did not trust him.
      He always seemed to be working some angle or another...! ;)

    Diagnosis Status:
    Not Sure
    I found out that I have a lot in common with people with Aspergers/ASD from watching videos online. I have a benign brain tumor and intractable epilepsy. I've had extensive neuropsychological testing, and know that I have information processing deficits. Unfortunately the testing was entirely cognitive. I've never had a psychosocial evaluation. I may not meet the full diagnostic criteria for ASD, but I have many autistic traits, and my social functioning is severely impaired.

    That said, I think there are many things that are dysfunctional about "normal" behavior. I also see that society is becoming increasingly intolerant of differences as it becomes more and more impersonal. IMO, we seem to think that we are always becoming more "tolerant" and "inclusive", when the opposite is in fact the case. By treating people as members of a category or group, or looking at them as a collection of readily identifiable qualities, we see them less as individual human beings. By doing so we become ignorant of what each person has to offer.
