I realized after the last few posts I did which garnered comments, that this medium isn't much different from my face to face interactions, in that I have a hard time reciprocating. This isn't 100%, I sometimes do have back and forth conversations with people, but usually I don't.
This is social pragmatic language, and I was recently assessed as having weakness in this area.
When the Autism Women's Network posted my profile mid-September, as part of their Pepsi Refresh campaign (go vote for them!) I got a lot of comments and I didn't respond to any of them. I feel bad about that. But I was overwhelmed. Sometimes when I do respond I feel like my responses are like.. cardboard? Dry and awkwardly bent.
