Autism Quote Number 4

So I’m going to start this post by referring to the American sitcom, The Big Bang Theory. Which used to be one of my favourite shows… until someone pointed out to me that the character Dr Sheldon Cooper was a classic autistic. Which, of course, I had always kind of *known*, but hadn’t really connected the dots between this man, and my son.

And when I did, I didn’t find the show all that funny any more.

Here’s today’s quote. (Again, from the ‘Always Unique, Totally Intelligent, Sometimes Mysterious’ Facebook community):

  1. I *love* Sheldon.
    Maybe it’s taken some of the humour out of it for you, but what I love about Sheldon is that he’s utterly unapologetic for being the way he is – he accepts himself, as he is, 100%. When I watch the show, I wish I could be more like him in that way.

  2. Hi P&E! Yes, that unashamed approach to life is a good thought – I hadn’t considered that. Thanks!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
