I think I have masked to much and it has been to my detriment. I did it because most of my life Aspergers was not known about so I was just "wrong". Even today there is a need to do it for survival.

Apparently Hitler was autistic and he was great at winning elections. Unfortunately he was a psychopath as well. Other politics people were thought to have been too, like Thomas Jefferson, and an English politician whom I can't recall right now. These are all argued by Michael Fitzgerald. It is har...
