It was the only way he felt he could be with other people.
    I know which one you're talking about -- I believe he was in England, but I forgot his name. I think a robot companion would be perfect for him.

But in the case of my daughter, and the other Asperger's people we've met through her support group, giving is tightly bound up with rejection because their autism prevents them from being able to accurately assess what another person wants, so even with the best and sweetest of motives, their attempts at 'giving' often end up with them being yelled at, judged or hated...

    I just wondered if that might have some resonance with you?
    I never intended this to be about me. I never brought up my own problems. I just stated my philosophical view that I think everyone is like this. So if this is going to be about me, then let's continue the discussion in my blog.

    Ladies seemed to like Alex Murphy (AKA Robocop), too!
