Thank you for sharing your experience. There was no “autism awareness” when we were younger and sometimes I see people out and about in the world and there’s something about their mannerisms or carraige that makes me feel like they might be one of “us”…fuctional, acclimated…but forged by fire and hiding in plain sight. Like a little tribe. I really appreciate you taking the time to respond. It makes my heart happy. :)
