Thinking In Pictures by Temple Grandin

Temple Grandin and I are both very similar to one another.  We both have Asperger Syndrome and are unable to drive. I on the other hand, still attend high school and don't have a diploma. Temple, however has a degree in animal science from the University of Illinois.   Some times after a long day, my mind can't seem to relax and so what ends up happening is, I have videos replay inside my head over and over again.  Temple, uses pictures in order to reach solutions to problems. There are many pros and cons about having Asperger Syndrome. Some of the pros are that you get a lot of help in school. But some of the cons are that you can't operate a motorize vehicle because of the lack of the reaction capabilities.  I'm not saying that there aren't people with Asperger Syndrome who drive, but what I am saying is that it's a risk that I don't feel comfortable taking especially at this stage in my life.
