I have autism with a hint of ADD. I get flattered if someone says I'm "special", but I think it's something that I wouldn't let go to my head. I mean, you are free to believe that you can be a sweet person with a unusually special talent, but boasting and showing off doesn't neccesarily make you seem special.
You use your "gift" as an excuse to treat people like crap. Just because you have a disability, doesn't make you better, or any different. And if you treat people terribly, don't expect them to be nice to you because you have some form of autisim or aspergers.
My friend has an ADH type of Autism . She is same age as me . We are really a good friend , but she always been bullied by other kid . She is left handed too . But don't underestimate her .
