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...

Original Ideas...GroundBreaking, Fantastico or Colossal Mistake

I can definitely be called a creative thinker. I frequently come up with ideas that are completely outside the box. My problem is...I lack the judgement to tell if they are productive or pipe dreams, positives or terrible negatives. In my head, all my ideas are fresh, innovative, already at fruition and 100% possible and positive.
Then "reality" comes along and oft slams me to the wall. What I think is good very often can be perceived negatively or, quite frankly, be incredibly stupid.
I cannot tell the difference. This is where I would love my own personal advisory board composed of people who are knowledgeable, sane and won't laugh at me, but dish out practical advice. Hmmm, I guess I'd have to like, share my ideas outside of my head for that to become reality. That would involve confidants and chatting. So, probably not.
I soooo wish I knew. I pray for someway to tell the difference. Having made so many costly, grandiose mistakes, my only sure bet is to not do anything at all.
A short post, but a true post...that greatly impacts my everyday life
