I have to remember that for as much as my son's behavior can be insanely irritating, no, make that enrageing, it is likely that mine makes him feel simularly.
He needs to remember that, too. He often feels that he is the only one inconvenienced by his AS, having to be so confused at times, and needing to tolerate the sentimentality of NT's. But, I am equally inconveneiced. I just am not sure he realizes this.
I have found one way that he and I connect easily is through humor. We both enjoy watching funny TV programs, or he shows me the most amazing videos and such that he has found on the internet.
Just by chance, do you enjoy humor?
Have you ever seen these groups of video? Some of them are hysterically funny.
Google "five second films".
Warning: they are really, really wierd short films, and yes, they are only five seconds long each.
You might have some trouble with the very brief English but listen many times and you will understand.
