You're different: Working chemistry problems is more fun than a rock concert. No people-sense; even reading faces takes learning & conscious effort. Parties and team sports play baffle you. Coordination skills come hard. The most successful aspies -- and i've known a few -- apply their mental focus to something useful, learn to say only nice things & become useful, well-liked & even "fascinating.".
