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...

Fun Lyme disease facts

Seriously...you have got to be kidding me!
In 2009, the last year of completed statistics, in my home state of Michigan, according to the CDC, there were...81... Reported cases of Lyme disease...in the Entire State!
The odds of getting the disease is 1 in 18,100
If I had removed bad boy tick within the first twenty four hours, I'd probably not have the disease.
70-80 % of affected individuals, have a tell-tale bullseye rash. I fell in to the 30% with no rash.
I think I should start buying lottery tickets.
Sometimes...all afternoon, really, I think You are Fucking Kidding Me!
