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

Unfortunately, I think it's still a pretty common belief that people with Autism lack empathy. Once something becomes common belief, it's so difficult to stop the rumors from circulating and get people to accept the truth.

I'm also highly sensitive to other people's emotions and absorb them. I recently read something that listed the traits of an empath and realized that I have most of those traits. Many of the traits sound like symptoms of ADHD and possibly Autism. I don't think I'm on the Autism spectrum, but I have wondered at times.
