    Please tell Jack that he is not alone. There is a 56 year old woman that doesn’t understand the rules either. I don’t fit in and I irritate a lot of people. I can’t stop moving so I cook and bake a lot. Tell Jack he’s not the only one and tell him thank you for sharing.

      Thank you for sharing your experience! It breaks my heart that the world’s social rules exclude so many amazing individuals. Nobody should be made to feel that they irritate people just because their neurology is different. Our rules must change. Social rules must become more flexible and compassionate. I am sorry for the way you have been treated. My daughter is 14 and already has reported similar things. I will continue to advocate tor her and help her learn to advocate for positive changes in our society’s approach to neurodiverse individuals. You are not broken. You do not need to be changed. Our society’s approach to social rules is what is broken and this approach needs to be changed.

    Jack, I have an 11 yr old son named Nicholas who would probably love to discuss soda with someone who loves it as much as he does at this time. You’re not alone😊. Merry Christmas, Cariello’s!
