Please tell me what has changed. You liked me when I was just weird, you stuck by me when I was self- diagnosed. I really need you right now, believe me, it's harder for me than it is for you.
Sincerely, a girl recently diagnosed with Aspergers who sits alone at lunch now
Dear guy who thinks it's funny to mess with a special needs girl's heart,

Please stop thinking I'm an idiot and can't write or spell just because I take my notes in shorthand and use abbreviations. You talk fast and I need to shorten things to keep up.

Dear guys standing outside my dorm,
