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...

Dealing with Grief

I've figured why I've been so depressed and lethargic...yeah, I'm grieving.
In therapy, it was just one waterfall after another. Clearing out old heart chakra debris.
I think I'm feeling so down with the latest revelations, loss of a semblance of childhood, being photographed and used and knowing that the only way to heal it is to accept it and go through it again, the loss of an old friend and a certain family member. Just lots.
I discussed the hazards of being my therapist with said therapist. She seems to comprehend the gravity and severity of starting therapy at this horrific junction with the sexually abused people and without any "light" fluff, parts that weren't seriously hurt. I'm actually incredibly calmed down since the appointment. Kinda miraculous the way that works.
Yeah, pretty sure she's the ideal therapist for us.
