I've not got this and have little experience with it, so hopefully the article this links to pushes no one's buttons.

Actually, I can relate. When I'm into it, I'm really good at research and finding things that other people might not have even thought to look for. This was a serious disadvantage when I had panic disorder and thought I could exclude conditions I was worried I might have through logic and research.

Michelle Dawson has some writing regarding her treatment as an autistic woman (such as losing her job at the post office just for being autistic) at autistics.org (http://archive.autistics.org/library/).
