Patient Comments: Autism - Experience

Please describe your experience with autism.

Comment from: alex86, 25-34 Male (Patient) Published: January 23

I think the most annoying aspect of this type of issue is the lack of social contacts that someone with autism can experience. I can remember at times having established strong bonded relationships with a few people my own age, and unfortunately you don't hear from them again, maybe the worst thing is that you don't have a clue why they aren't willing to keep in touch with you.
