Thanks; that makes more sense now. Brutal? I prefer direct; it gets more honest answers.

I have no idea what illness you're suffering from.

Brutal pretty much means direct or honest in my country

Someone close to me who is on the spectrum told me that he cannot connect with what someone else is experiencing unless he has experienced the same exact thing. He cannot imagine what it feels like to lose your aunt even though he lost his uncle, for example because an uncle is not an aunt and he cannot draw from his experience. But he loves, so if you're in pain, he feels great compassion, even though he can't necessarily relate to your pain.
