Prepare to enter the wild and wooly world of an adult with Aspergers Syndrome, a form of autism characterized by intellignce, quirks, social difficulties and downright strange and oddish behaviours.

People with Aspergers generally are high functioning in everyday life but have great difficulty connecting with others due to the inability to read faces, body language and subtle verbal clues. They also tend to take words literally and have a hard time multi-tasking.

Oversensitivity to touch (clothing has to be soft and often the tags removed), light (do not leave home without the sunglasses), sound (loud noises and noisey places are avoided), taste (many Aspies have quite a limited diet and are frequently very picky eaters) and smells makes the everyday existence more of a challenge.

Fasten your seatbelts and come on in...

Utah

Nota fan of Utah. As soon as I crossed the state line, it felt as if doors were shutting and I'd entered a place of great secrets and judgement. Odd, considering I know a few kind and wonderful people that live there.
Instead of the long, straight roads of Wyoming, there were twists, turns and uncertainty around each bend. It felt unpleasant. My mood changed dramatically for the better once I hit Idaho.
Idaho feels like a warm smile and open arms.
