This post was written by a dear friend of mine, Samantha Craft. A fellow aspie. You will find this and many other wonderful writings in her blog http://aspergersgirls.wordpress.com. I am saddened that many of us have endured the same as is written in her post. Such an uncomfortable state it is to feel forced to be anything other than your true self just to satisfy those who know almost nothing about themselves. Thank you for our beautiful writings Sam.
