Everything that I have read about autism describes me accurately. I have limited interests, repetitive behavior, and inability to communicate with most humans.
I work at improving my communication with people. The motivation for communicating with humans came after I knew that I was stuck with them. I do not like most humans because they make no sense. I am fine with most animals and human babies because they don’t speak English. Because I had to work my job, I had to learn to talk to people.
People say all kinds of things that they don’t mean. It is the polite thing to say “Hello”, “Goodbye”, “Thank” you, “You’re Welcome”, “How are you?”, “I am good”, etc.
Take the example: “How are you?”. What does this mean? I think of these three words. What question are they asking? Are they even asking me a question? What is the answer they want? I do not understand this at all.
If instead they are me a relevant questions such as “What is your name?”, “What is your favorite color?”, or “What music do you like?”. I can answer these questions. If you ask the right question, you will get an answer. You can help me communicate with you.
