I was struggling, but stuff like this wasn’t on the agenda when I was at school. Really it was a way of saying, ‘I can’t do this and I don’t know why'.”

If there were a cure for Asperger’s, I don’t know if I’d want it. Humanity has prospered because of people with autistic traits. Without them, we wouldn’t have put man on the Moon or be running software programs. If we wiped out all the autistic people on the planet, I don’t know how much longer the human race would last."
