Maybe they thought it was none of their business. I get bruised a lot (sensitive skin, rambunctious kids, clumsiness) and I get annoyed with the questions and the pointed looks and the whispers.
I like Janine, but, I think they would be better with a polysyllabic, combination-type name, like Julianna, Jessiella, Janietta, or something. Seems more their style.
I want shenanigans!

First, the good news: autistics absolutely are all there mentally. All that stuff about withdrawing and being stolen---completely not true. Basically, what Kristine said. She's right.
