Please, please, do NOT refer to autism or Asperber's as a "mental
illness." There's absolutely nothing wrong with these people's
brains; they merely see the world in different ways, and they are not a danger
or potential threat to themselves or anyone else. Read about Temple
Grandin, or ask any mom like me who has a high-functioning autistic son.
I'm not looking for ways to cure him; he doesn't need curing. Only
understanding. Just like Sheldon.
Nobody Is Perfect. Normal is, is what normal does.
