If possible, try to find a remote job working for a government, city, county, state or federal - they have quotas for disabled employees and they are all supposed to be trying to increase the percentage of remote workers where possible. Also Government jobs are generally less demanding on deadlines - although there is more accountability for time spent usually. In addition, they have better attitudes with working around disabilities (mostly).

As far as the high IQ you mentioned, I had a similar problem. When I was working as a professor at university (I held the Chair of Computing for a time), I had a lot of intellectual equals and generally kept within that "sphere" for friendship. Once I left to "get a real job" I lost touch with a lot of them and found it hard to socialise with "regular" people as I found them slow and/or dimwitted in general (and often overly obsessed with sports). Dancing with them was fine but conversations were really hard work!

Luckily I ended up marrying an ex-cheerleader who also was a genius! Happily ever after, so far - although she had a accident and suffered major brain damage it didn't reduce her IQ, just slowed her down a bit and causes memory drop-outs now and then.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
