Seconded with the first-hand experience. I'm a diagnosed aspie too, and even though I've come leaps and bounds with overcoming my own problems, I feel for and hugely support someone who is still struggling with the symptoms of the syndrome. Few people understand just how big of a deal it is for someone with asperger's to get up in front of a crowd and perform any act of public speaking; someone I know once described the anxiety an aspie feels in a situation like that is the equivalent of what most people feel during their driving exam. What seems like a tiny emotional burden is amplified tenfold for someone with the syndrome. Now imagine feeling that way every time you feel the slightest tinge of stress or anxiety – that’s basically the kind of problem I had to deal with during my childhood and teenage years, and what this guy was probably going through when he got up on stage.This guy has balls. Massive, rock-hard boulders, and he deserves kudos for doing what he did with the condition he struggles to overcome. Someone give him a cookie!
