Yeah, real life. Best teacher in the world.


A little painful and embarrassing sometimes, but it works like nobody's business. :oops:

Yes, I have had enough of that which I why I am seeking help elsewhere.

So if anyone knows of any therapist or group that does social skills training in Maryland- Baltimore area I would be grateful for the info. Is there an AS support group in Maryland (I know about the one is DC but it is far).

Thanks

Look for occupational therapists in your area. They can be greatly helpful.

Very good point, for some reason in my early 20s I got really obsessed with sales training, even though the idea of a sales job didn't appeal to me. It wasn't until much later that I realized I was subconsciously teaching myself etiquette.
