Re: Empathy: I believe People with ASD -DO- HAVE EMPATHY

are people still saying people with autism lack emotion or physical empathy?

wow, i hate when people talk about things they have no idea about

i know people with autism (and adhd for that matter) have trouble seeing another persons perspective, which is a part of empathy, but we all have emotions (adhd and autism, im sure there are others without)

im not autistic, but i also get overwhelmed by others emotions, ive seen different writings about it (emotional contagion issues, poor boundaries, porous boundaries )

i at times have trouble telling if the emotion is the other persons, or my own , it has lead me to avoid emotions in general, and situations that evoke them
