Are you communicating to patients? Don’t. Please stop it. Unless of course, you’re a doctor giving treatment. And even then you might want to reconsider. Illness does not define us and seeing people as patients limit our ability to understand and to build meaningful relationships. Here’s a picture of a poster (one of many) posted near the local train station. An aspie – a girl with Asperger’s syndrome – is calling out for other youngsters with autism spectrum disorder to get together. And that single poster tells you so much about what it’s like living with Asperger’s. All the best wishes to the girl and her new friends.
