That's very sad to hear.

I met David years ago, as we attended a group called ELAS, in Edinburgh. In 2008, we went to Dumfries. David and I ascended the hill Criffel together, near Galloway. 

In 2009, we went to England. I remember David saying he was a fan of model trains. He would have gotten on well with my mate, Frank, as he collects them too.

I used to see David around Dunfermline mostly in the library, where there were some computers for people to access the Internet.  There was an article about him, his Asperger's syndrome and his interest in model trains in the local paper, more that ten years ago.  

I had suspected that I had Asperger's syndrome but as he was the only person that I was aware of with Asperger's syndrome, I compared myself with his presentation to the world (some of which is in the links above) and concluded that I had only slight Asperger's syndrome, if at all.  I got my diagnosis quite a few years later.

Unfortunately, after I received my diagnosis I never spoke to him about Asperger's syndrome, I regret that now.  I only found out about his passing when I did an Internet search, after I realised that I hadn't seen him about town for a long time.

I've stayed away from Number 6 in Edinburgh for years, as I had major legal issues with two women who used to be my support workers. I cannot be bothered explaining everything. My life is a mess now. I have no social life to talk of. All my life, I've felt like a loner, who people laugh at. Now I cannot even be a film extra in anything, due to people saying things just to be nasty. But I got my diagnosis of PDD-NOS way back in 2007.
