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...

The One Friend Theory

All an Aspie needs is one good trusted friend. I've had brief outbursts of friendships, that seem to disintegrate after 4-5 months. It's been well over a year, at this point. The only adult I speak with for more than a few minutes is my therapist. It's easily been over a month since I've had a non family, non therapist, face to face.
 One friend wouldn't solve all my problems, just 90% of them
The more she talked and thought about what she needed, the farther it moved away. Being depressed doesn't attract anyone to help, just seems like an effective repellant. Not really anything more to say, anymore.
