    I get the being laughed at thing. I try so hard to do the whole small talk thing but autism makes me so bad at it. I see it as so pointless and when I try people can be horrible because I do it wrong. Or because I talk about ‘stupid’ things or ‘boring’ things. I personally would love to talk about cold war history, so you’re not alone! 🙂 It can be lonely but then I remember there are other bloggers out there like me, and I feel a little better.

      I think that being laughed at also shows just how ignorant the person is in question-and it use to make me so angry!

    I’m so sorry you’ve had to go through that, I think laughing at someone is one of the cruelest things you do can do over something they can’t help. This is a great post and really informative as I don’t know much about Aspergers x

      Yay, my aim was reached! (I intend to be informative 😀 )

    This was such a wonderful post, Lydia! You’ve managed to speak to both the highs and the lows of life as a person with Aspergers in one post, and share a bit of your unique perspective on living with ASD with people who might not otherwise know what it’s like to walk in your shoes. I hope there are people reading this who will think twice the next time they have the impulse to be cruel or exclude someone just because they’re not exhibiting neurotypical behaviors ❤️❤️.
