Yes, the power of a teaching moment. That moment when you can let someone know that yes you've got Asperger's and bipolar and they are willing to listen to what you have to say. They come at unexpected moments, and must be grasped. They are painful, at times, but we must work through the pain and help others understand. It is only when people begin to grasp what Asperger's is, and makes us do that we begin to break down the barriers. The ones that writes me off as being "weird" or "odd" and not just differently wired.
Have you had teachable moments out there? What are they? I'd love to hear in comments examples of these. Thanks. :)
