Is an adult with Asperger syndrome sitting in your waiting room?
This developmental disorder affects children and adults and can present challenges to providing medical care.
IT IS NOT A DISORDER.
It is a different state of mind, leading to communication disturbances with those who are not blessed with the freedom of mind it gives. We don’t like looking in your eyes because we see the lie. We see the neurotypical playing their games. We see the ape mind staring back at us, through the human eyes. It’s uncomfortable.
Stop making this a disorder, stop treating it as if we are incompetent. It’s you who are incompetent to handle the apebrain inside pulling your strings. We don’t want to be like you, slaves to a anachronistic primal brain which outlived its usefulness.
The anxiety we feel is caused by the high stimulation of the environment you created, full of bright lights, loud music and endlessly nattering people. Sure we like to talk, but not about what auntie Bridget did.
For fuck sake. Stop already.
