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...

Happiness

I'm pretty convinced that happiness will always happen in fleeting, minuscule glimpses....that it shall never occupy a majority...that it is the perpetual swiftly moving cloud I race after to no avail.
Some things I can change...others I can not.....seems the latter grows larger day by day, occupying more and more of the ticking clock with fallen, heavy hands.
How long have I searched, empty caves and caverns deep, only to sense the growing abyss.
Fairness is like the muck that gets stuck in the crevices of your boot.
I throw up my hands and stand in the twister. Despair is the small creature beside me that keeps me warm.
Some things...I will not win, so I will no longer try. Resignation is a soft pillow, in a quiet room, with the door tightly shut.

  1. Fleeting glimpses....so very many have none at all. 'Happiness'....I'm not being a smart ass here Amy, but what is it anyway? Content, I love that word...content. Happiness DOES come and go. I think contentment lasts and endures all. "Accept the things we cannot change"....oh, such a heavy lesson. What would make you happy?
