Yeah. I don't really have any mental disorders but I never really had that many friends so shows that bring me nostalgic like TTTE is away to escape the world.

Actually that isn't what DDT6 said; what he said was that being overly social is not a disorder.

I am lost then...

*EDIT Then why is not being social a disorder?

How very insensitive of you, Luc. I'm just appalled.

I don't have Autism/Aspergers, but I do have mild forms of depression and anxiety disorders, and I find TTTE to be one of the few truly "uplifting" things in my life (on the rare occasions I can watch it...), so I can relate. Thomas and Friends is an excellent way to escape, to learn, to just enjoy.

Going to have to agree with Toz here; that was some insensitive things you said luc.

It's not just a matter of being social; Asperger's is also a matter of how the brain is wired and how we perceive the world.

I'm not autistic or anything, either, but the series still holds a place in my heart (even if I don't particularly care for collecting distorted-looking merchandise). To me, this series is pretty much on the same pedestal and any piece of critically acclaimed animation. (regardless of target audience).

Interesting. For me, I guess you could say something similar. I loved thomas very much, and I think I was still watching him well into fifth grade, perhaps even middle school
