    Thanks for sharing your story, Mike. A lot of what you have said and experienced has some parallels with my life as well. Going to college and university was not easy for me and my work suffered badly. Although I persevered and got my degree, I didn’t attend my graduation ceremony. I felt like I didn’t deserve it. Throughout my time in Uni, I didn’t engage with tutors, I didn’t embrace student life and I didn’t ask for help when I needed it.
    I am a very analytical person but it took a long time to realize that there was something not quite “right” with me. I knew that I struggled sometimes with social interactions. I shrugged this off as me being introverted but it was only when I watched a program on channel 4 about autism that revealed I could have Aspergers. This explains so many things in my life and I now can put a name to it.
