Hi there.

Thanks for your comment.

I was sorry to see the effect my article had on many people who commented, who didn't have the experience growing up that you did. My intention wasn't to denigrate anyone and I know that there are many families where this problem does not crop up. I'm happy for the Aspergers / NT families that are healthy and whole.

The people on my mind as I wrote this article were people like yourself. And I had difficulties finding much written on this subject. That just made it more important to me to write about it. The problems for people in a situation like yours are very real and run very deep.

Information about this, to my mind, could only be a good thing for a group that got lost in the shuffle growing up and are still in the shadows at the present time.

I appreciate you writing.
