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...

Art is my Life

Well, arting, creating, finding and caring for Younglink and Partner, in addition to passionate gardening, lawn care with a minor in friendly socialization.

The aforementioned have been my constant source of pleasure and joy.

I've befriended a hot glue gun...we be going steady for hours on end. However, there have been a number of "incidents" in which we were much too close. Here's the thing about hot glue guns.....if you have a some point, it will bark. Using a hot glue gun, one will get burned. Last night, I was using the hot glue gun the dumbwrong way. Some nasty burns have taught me to use it, the smart way. That, plus I need a new aloe plant. I went out and bought some healing burn cream, as I realize that it be a requirement to have it on hand...pun intended.

Anyway, my life is at a happy plateau....just wanted to :)
