I just got a diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder ASD and ADHD at the age of 50. It has been difficult finding anyone who wants to communicate or connect seems like banging my head against a wall. I don't believe in giving up but feel I may be wired so differently I will never be able to bridge the gulf that lies between the world and myself. It feels like the majority finds no end in delight and humor reminding me they don't consider me part of the human race. Thank you for allowing me to vent. I will read the article you suggested.

I am sorry for what you have gone through in your own struggles an suffering at the hands of others or the world in general. I may not know what you have been through, and I would not lie and say that I did. That would dis-honor what you have been through. But I can empathize and say honestly I am sorry for what you have been through, and your losses.

Thank you for sharing!
