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...

Processing the past ten years...

So, this behavior of the past ten years...this cruel, treating me like a subhuman far beneath her and never worthy of being anywhere near equal her...this..treating me as if I had no needs and was just a fixture on the couch, and had no say in anything, didn't ever deserve a kind word or compliment...all this behavior of hers..had to be subconscious right? I mean, no one would knowingly, consciously treat another human being like that, right? I don't understand how anyone could be cruel...so it must be some mental defect or serious oversight? Are some people really that mean, cold and calculating? Is that possible? Am I simply too naive and kind that I find it impossible to fathom that one human would knowingly treat another human that poorly?
My health insurance came through today! Hope it doesn't take me long to find the right therapist. This is one of the first items up for discussion cause part of me feels....disgusted, confused, perplexed, hurt? That this denigrating behavior continued for as many years as it did.
