Most people don't even know what autism or Asperger's is, so why would they ever ask us?

[quote="DevilKisses"]No, but strangers often ask me if I'm okay. Most people that find out about my diagnosis say that I don't seem autistic. I've always felt very happy whenever people said that. Even a psychiatrist said that I don't look autistic.[/quote]
How do a person "look autistic"?

I have gotten that a couple times.

My best friend said she didn't mention that she thought I had AS because she thought I might have been offended by her asking. I wouldn't have. I really wish she had said something back then. I didn't know about aspergers back then and would have liked to know that there may be a reason for my weirdness. :lol:
