So what did you think when you actually received the diagnosis? Can you remember what you thought?
Well, relief! I thought that is it! When I first went over to the clinical psychologist he asked me a list of diagnostic questions. And [snaps fingers] somebody understands what I mean. Yes I do constantly misread people. I have got a habit, a long history of misreading people. Not knowing quite what people’s motives are, unless it is very obvious, if it is absolutely blindingly obvious.
You are doing research. You are a researcher. I am not. This is the roles, the roles are very clear. You know. It is when the roles… at work, at work and this person is a manager or this person is the pit boss or whatever you know, this person is the designer, but it just gets vague, because it is not clearly defined. But I, yes when I had to go back again the second time to see the clinical psychologist and he said, “Yes, you have certainly got Asperger's. In my opinion you have got Asperger syndrome.” Ho! at last. Somebody bloody understands, you know, and it just fitted into place.
