I recently encountered an old classmate of mine who is also autistic. However, his condition is far worse than mine. Just like when I was younger, he had no control over his motor functions and had no social skills. Fortunately, I noticed that he has gained much better control over his autism since high school. He still has a long way to go, but so far his improvement is noticeable. I am pleased with how far he has come and it is a pleasure to meet a kindred spirit.
