He shares how he uses it as a coping mechanism to help get through overwhelming social situations. The make believe world can be a great coping mechanism. It can also be troubling if too much time is spent inside it.When Travis makes a friend they become like a mother in his mind. The friend is a special interest. He has to try and balance that with the reality of the real world.Travis also explains the relationship between lying and the make believe world of Autism. Sometimes things that are true in the make believe world will not be true in the real world. What is truth in the make believe world may be a lie in the real world.Its important to have a healthy balance between the real world and the make believe world. Even more important to understand how the make believe world works.This is one of the most moving accounts of growing up with Undiagnosed AS that I have read.

If you have a friend or family member who is different from what you or society expects, this story offers a birds-eye view of what it might feel like to be in their skin. Maripat Jordan Robison
