"Hi, my name is (deleted for privacy) and I'm a Neurotypical. In fact most of my friends are NT's. My family has only quite recently become aware of my condition. But fortunately they support me in this."

Finding out you are an NT never is easy. But luckily there are those who know what it is like. With whom you can share thoughts and ideas on how to cope with this situation and how to handle its common symptoms.
In an effort to support those who are NT, have an NT relative or know an NT this community has been founded. Feel free to exchange thoughts and anecdotes. If you have helpful hints or tips on how to get the most out of your predicament post them here.

And remember: you are not alone.

Re: Just another slight to the Autistic community

Actually this community was formed for exactly the opposite reason: to take the behavior of neurotypicals, "those not on the spectrum", and in a jestful manner look at how it's wrong or not working for others. Followed by how it could be improved to the betterment of both those on and off the spectrum.
I am honestly sorry if this wasn't clear and thus has offended you. I hope you believe me when I tell you this certainly wasn't the intention of this opening entry. And I also have to admit that the lack of actual entries does not help to clarify the original intent. I therefore apologize for any grief or agony this may have caused you.

I am of the belief that it is not only a matter of those on the spectrum to "fit in" (if they are willing to in the first place, they will always have that choice) but that it is even more up to "neurotypicals" to be open and understanding. So that it'd be easier for those that want to "fit in" to actually fit in. And for those that don't want to "fit in" and live their lives the way they want to, to be able to do that. Without being hindered by the rest of society. And someone has to point that out to "neurotypicals".

If you have any more information, on how you felt a different message came across and how this could be corrected and improved, I will be more than glad to hear your recommendations.

Just replying, sincerely yours.
