I was struggling emotionally and solicited the help of an ex-coworker. Instead of responding in a respectful manner, he berated me. I was in a difficult situation and had ongoing health issues. I reached out believing he would surely help or offer advice, but I misjudged who he was as a person and his response was unexpected.
That was emotionally difficult for me although, I was not publicly humiliated the way Andrew that autistic man was but because of my experience, I could empathize.
