Any think else you would like to mention: Because i am autistic, i am easily overwhelmed by any kind of social interaction. There is a sort of strangeness about me that my friends have to get used to. I am an acquired taste. I also am very inept at using the computer, almost computer illiterate. I could not follow the instructions for this post, but i did want to participate.

Very pleased to know you here; my middle child age 28 is autistic but though she can read and write and do academics on about a 5th grade level, she is very low in most other aspects and needs help dressing and so on. She stims and has tantrums and is obsessed with the Nickelodeon channel and can tell you every single thing about it and about every show ever aired on that network, ha. I was raised Christian (Baptist) but am not religious now in holding to any one faith. I am however studying Buddhist thought right now and interested in its precepts, mostly due to my son. He was a Buddhist and since his death I am reading all the books he left behind.

I am very lucky that my autism left me with such i high level of fumctioning; my tantrums are more sophisticated and often go unnoticed. and i read well enough, but i think i understand at least a little how an autistic person And i know that trapped inside that strange brain is a person as valuable as anyone else.

I also remember Daniel and i sorrow that you have gone through so much. We will get to know each other better.
