Autism question

Q: Since having physical contact is so difficult, do you ever wish you could handle it, just to show affection to those you love?

A: I don’t actually have too much of a problem with touch.  I love hugging people and cuddling.  Some kinds of touch bothers me, like when Kaanas used to rub his thumb along the back of my hand while we were holding hands, but most of the time I am fine.  Everyone with autism is different, and what bothers one person may not bother another person.  For some people touch can be physically painful, for me some smells make me ill, it just depends on the person.
