Hi Nikki,

I sympathize.

Fortunately, there are resources on the net that you can go to for more information. It would be nice if your dad was to show an interest in this as well, but it's also true that the more you can learn and understand about this syndrome, the better you will be able to deal with the effects.

Many NT people have found that simply by the fact that they now have a clearer idea of what they're dealing with, with their Aspie loved ones, things have changed some for the better. They have seen the real need to be more clear and specific in their verbal communications for instance.

And the realization that what has felt like rejection or being ignored for all these years, was not out of malice or indifference, has caused a huge weight to be lifted off the shoulders, and the hearts, of many lonely neurotypicals. Some begin to be able to believe perhaps for the first time, that maybe they are loved after all. It's just a matter of ... translation, two different worlds being able to communicate better.

I wish you the best of luck in your relationship with your father, and with other people of all kinds in your future life.
