If I remember, she was interested in all things Russian and had actually taught herself to speak it?


So I heard, although I've no idea how successful she was with it. I remember once, though, when she said she was thinking of hurting herself, telling her that I thought having taught oneself a foreign language, especially one as complex as Russian, was very ambitious, and that it sounded like she was too full of life seriously to want a way out of it. I speak Russian, too, so I know what learning it entails. Learning that she had died was a shock.

I remember her. I'm shocked to hear that she passed away, what a terrible thing to happen to such a young life, and under those circumstances.

I know that she did have the basic numbers down. Actually have a recording of her reciting them to me on my computer.

I remember her, remember reading of her death and that of her boyfriend at the time(he killed himself prior to her suicide) and still think about her fairly often. She had things besides Aspergers that made her life a lot more difficult.

I never knew her, but I hope she's found peace.

I remember you well too and was quite glad to see you still around here.
I finally got my formal diagnosis last month which is one reason I returned :)

Ahh okay! I've pretty much moved on from WrongPlanet, but it's nice to see some old faces from way back when. I'm pretty much non-active on here, I'm only in this thread because I have email notifications set for it; figured I could be of help for those who want to know more about Sophie.
