I came across this story today and thought it would make a good starter for an autism thread.
"Laura James, 47, is a successful journalist and author. She’s a wife to Tim and mother to four adult children. She likes fashion, cats and writing. She’s eloquent and quick-witted.
She also has autism.
She was surprised when the idea was first suggested to her back in 2015 by a friendly nurse during a hospital stay in London."
Her story is presented in the link I provided. I wonder how many are in the spectrum without realizing and I wonder how important it is for them to know. I suppose the degree to which it affects their life.
