    I deal with a 51 year old man who has autism.although he has worked at the same job for over 30 years. he cannot answer simple yes or no questions,without making me feel like i am getting on his nerves or bothering him.lack of eye contact,and many other signs i am just now learning about.I am in desperate need to talk to a real person. possibly a hotline? sincerely,HURTING

    Dawn, your feelings are about you, not about him. I discuss the physiology behind it.


    Because of the uncanny valley effect, how you feel as you get to know him may get worse before it gets better. Eventually it will get better, but the change that makes that happen is in you, not in him.
