In one episode, Otto gets a pill (or injection) which makes him more intelligent for a few minutes. He then freaks out and realises he has wasted his whole life.
I saw this episode a few years ago, and I laughed.

But as I have grown older and matured (too late 😢) I have realised that I wasted most of my life in an autistic bubble. I was totally obsessed with my specialist subject.

So opportunities passed me by and I f@@@ed a lot of things up and didn't realise.

Has anyone else had a similar experience?

I'm 42, and I reckon that the level of emotional maturity I have now is what a neuro typical person would have when they were 20.

I had some similar experiences, some aspects of it anyway, I don’t think I messed up my whole life, but there are some major things which I could have done much better.
