I'm restarting my autobiography because I want to make it happy and funny rather than looking like a cry for help.
In all honesty, my first attempt of writing an autobiography did look like a suicide note covering 15 A4 Pages.
I'm hoping someone can give some inspiration...
One part of this I explain how a person with a form of autism can be like a computer in trying to go through so many processes at once and that you can't replace a person with autism if they are slow to respond like you can with a PC.

A good thing about Asperger's syndrome is that you have special talents. For instance, my special talent is drawing and coming up with stories.

Is this specifically Asperger's or can this be said for those on the spectrum?
I better explain... Y'see, whenever I've seen an autobiography of someone with autism, it turns out that 90% of them are Aspies.
No offense but should the books be titled as Asperger's rather than Autism.
I'm a HFA so not everything does apply from Aspies to HFAs and I'm rather specifying on Autism rather than Asperger's.

Maybe honesty. Most people with Autism don't do much lying. Even though that's sometimes problematic it's a beautiful quality.

I did have this down already but thank you for suggesting.
Also put that not everyone is 100% similar even if they do have a few similarities.

Yeah, this is why I had trouble coming up with anything, because there's no quality 100% of people with Autism share.

The experts don't agree on any difference between high functioning autism and aspergers and in many research and clinical settings they are considered the same thing.

That's true, that's why Aspergers is being eliminated as a diagnosis and everyone will just be considered on the spectrum.

Should have done this years ago... would be easier to make a diagnosis and even the undiagnosed would have had a diagnosis.

I dont have attention to detail
but I have relentless passion and drive instead.
Its really hard to put the emotions into words when everything is so extremely intense.

Thanks.
I'm not blaming anyone or anything but if you can think of all the negative things about being on the spectrum and the posts even supply that fact. Then with all due respect you can think of some positive things as well.

I think the reason it's hard to find things positive about the whole spectrum is that the spectrum is defined by a collection of difficulties showing up together in sufficient numbers to be considered a problem. It's like saying, what's good about all NT's, there's really nothing that fits. Even defining the spectrum through negatives is more of an art form than a science because the problems vary so much between individuals.
