Amy Bishop seems to have trouble with reading and responding to conversational cues, and is said to struggle generally in social situations, plus have some absolute-type opinions.
I’m not saying it’s an excuse, but I want people to understand what NLD is and how we can help ourselves and each other deal with it in positive ways. Otherwise, I fear that homicide or more commonly suicide, and even more commonly non-lethal self-harm, is more likely in people with these disorders. Had a specialist not helped me, I don’t know what my future would have been like. I could be homeless, selling drugs, a prostitute, et cetera.
I’m definitely following the Bishop proceedings. I’m very sad about the families, students, and university.
