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...

Living with the Lyme

So it's been four weeks of continuos flu like symptoms; aches and pains so bad I take pain meds when I just can't handle it any more, fevers and chills with sweats, no appetite just a few things taste good..empty ice cream sugar cones, apples, Cheetos, toast mostly; takes all the energy I can muster to get up; itchy with various rashes going on.
Oh, don't forget the various headaches, intermittent numbing and tingling!
 Can't tell if I'm detoxing and getting better or the same with moments, hours of feeling worse, like shit.
 It's pure hell having a disease with no singular proven treatment, just hit and miss of advice and trial and error crap.
 Can't believe I'm still here in this awful sucking place.
