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...

Lichen Sclerosis

If lichen sclerosis was a disease that caused a mans penis to shrink, rare or not, there would be massive funding and teams of doctors working to find a cure. But because it affects women, there is no funding, studies or research.
Lichen sclerosis has no cure and no known cause. It is a helpless, frustrating, cruel and painful disease. Start talking about it.
