This is not a pity-party. Sorry, with KLMNO's horrible tragedy...I am in no way feeling badly for myself. I just have a question. As most of you know, I have many neurological soft signs (not sure what that means, actually). I also have many autistic, mostly Aspie-like traits. It is so hard for me to fit in and I don't feel I fit in here either, mostly do to how hard it is for me to express myself in any way other than more clinical and I'm afraid I sound cold sometimes. Do I? I really don't mean to. I care about all of you with all my heart, yet I feel like my postings aren't as warm and caring as most of yours. I also have such a hard time connecting with people (probably because of this). Do you feel I fit in on the board? Sometimes I read over my posts and wonder if I give enough emotion in my answers...that maybe I shouldn't stay because I don't fit in. Again, this is not a pity party. All my life I've been very clinical, very literal and I can't seem to help it. Although I've never gotten an Asperger's diagnosis, many neuropsychs have said I am close to being one. If I come across too cold, I will try to do better. Sometimes though I'm not sure if I'm doing better. Know what I mean?? Id' love to meet you all one day, but am afraid I'd come across as too shy and that my discomfort in a crowd would be obvious. I hope I expressed how deeply I feel for KLMNO. She is so much on my mind...I want her to know that. And I appreciate all of you so much and want you to know. Thanks for answering.
