i recognize autistic symptoms in all sorts of places:
- an advice column letter in which the woman describes her trying brother in law, who monopolized conversations on his pet topics and wouldn't engage on other topics at all.
- a novel in which one of the the characters sure sounds to me like someone with autism.
- people describing their undiagnosed kid to me.
Today i came across an old post of mine
and realized it showed Max doing a very autistic type thing: climbing inside something, having something touching all around.
