The Open-Minded Autism Researcher

I had a cool experience last night. It helped me think in a new way about my illness. I am still mulling it over. I will write some more ideas soon. The experience was a meeting at my home with a neuro-scientist who researches autism. He lives far from me so we have e-mailed but never met in person. He asks me a lot of hard questions about my thinking processing, my visual perceptions, my ability to control my body, and so on.

Overcoming autism means we people with the ability to describe it from the inside out to people doing important research is only right. It is sort of an intense experience to hear about new theories about what they think may be wrong in my brain, but I'm thrilled to meet an open-minded thinker.
