    society when you have other ways of thinking and behaving.  Unfortunately, it's often the mainstream who wants you to fit in, rather than the other way around.  

    Regardless of that irritating tendency of the masses, hang in there and be yourself, Homer.

      aren't in my lexicon.

      Any time I've tried to use the freedom we supposedly have, I'm almost immediately shut down.

      This sort of thing isn't really new and I'm not the first person this has happened to. The only thing I hate is that, knowing the country in which we live, I know I won't be the last.

      I write a series called 'My Life as an Aspie', documenting my experiences before and after my A.S. diagnosis as a way to help fellow Aspies and parents of Aspies and spread awareness. If I help just one person by doing this, then I've served a purpose.
