Strong independent black dragon
One thing I hate about having autism is that its hard when I am communicating with someone who is suffering. I really struggle to find the words to express my empathy/sympathy and grief for someone, and it sometimes seems like I don't care about them, when really I do. I wish I could be a therapist to those in need, but the most I can muster when someone is in tears is "I'm sorry" or "I'm here" or "It will be okay" which is usually not enough, and I feel bad about that. I would give them a hug, because that would help me express my feelings, but that's not usually an option. I usually feel like people assume I am empty and uncaring, when in reality I want to cry with them, but my brain won't function in a way that can let me.
