Thanks, everyone. I appreciate the comments. It’s reassuring.

What Wgreen says – exchange is compromised – that makes sense.. So maybe there will always be some feelings of alienation and of being an outsider?

If I knew that’s how it is, for sure, that it’s my brain wiring, and not that I’m inherently a freak or inadequate, it would be easier to cope with.

How to compensate for it when I have to, I don’t know.

Usually for an event I have to psych myself up well in advance, review things I might have to say or remember.. I am not good at thinking on my feet.

I avoid crowds, but if I want to take a class or participate in a club, it gets very difficult.

It would be nice to be able to just BE without feeling guilty.
