The reason I was so irritated in this video was because right before filming I received a distressing e-mail. I’m not going to share the details of that message, but I will say that I was incredibly misunderstood by an adult who has barely met me. Now, to answer the “autistic world” question more clearly, what I was trying to say is exactly what is demonstrated by my frustration; that when I know I will be faced with a situation such as meeting a person for the first time, the encounter will probably not go as I planned even if I rehearse it a million times in my head. Many times I wind up failing to make the point that I rehearsed for so long, and this can cause major misunderstanding and later frustration. This disconnect between my mind and reality is the closest thing I can think of which relates to an “autistic world.” I hope that answers the question!
Also, here’s a really good explanation of Asperger’s as it presents itself in females. I came across it this week, and I wanted to share it: http://www.help4aspergers.com/pb/wp_a58d4f6a/images/img244154ad237783e339.JPG
