Re: Anal ? Obsessive ?

You make an excellent point about some of the positives of being on the autism spectrum, and equally well, I appreciate how difficult it can be to attempt to adapt to working with other people who perhaps don’t have quite such an attention to small details. That’s an absolutely invaluable skill to have, but at the same time there has to be at least a small amount of trying to be less abrasive in terms of interpersonal communications and relationships, otherwise it really does make for an absolutely horrible working environment for everyone else (who, bear in mind, may also have very useful skills in other areas).

Yes, I have had extremely bad experiences with this, to the extent of having affected my mental wellbeing extremely badly.
