In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary Autism in Love, Lenny, who constantly struggles to accept that autism will always be part of who he is, tells the filmmaker he wishes he wasn't autistic. "I wish I could've been a normal person," he says. "I would rather be a normal man than an autistic man with a million dollars."
