Autism and Empathy: Faking it or Making it?

The cat dragged something concise in for once.

Cannabis for Autism Actually, I think I'm wrong to say MDMA 'gives empathy', it's not that simple.

It makes autistic people feel properly interested in other people and stops autistic people looking strange. This combination of effects has the result of the autistic person experiencing something very close to 'a normal social situation with another person' and so an autistic person can learn about real interaction in a real setting. Something that cannot happen with no drugs or in a therapy setting.

When I say psychosis temporarily cures autism, I'm not joking. FULL ON empathy!
