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...

Lyme Full Strength Antiotics x2 Day 1


Today is my first day on full strength doxy, 100 mg x2 and my new antibiotic 1/2 strength. I can't tell if I'm killing bacteria or have a cold. I feel awful and can barely move. I've slept the majority of the day and managed to get enough fluids and food and take my supplements. I'm not complaining, just stating. I really need to work on keeping track of meds and symptoms.
 The first day I am well, I will travel 30 miles away and go thrift store shopping! I've been thinking of things to do that make me happy. When I am well enough, I'm going to take more time to "smell the roses", lighten up, forget I'm chronicly sick and do things I enjoy:)
 It's Spring and I'm going to get out into the sunshine as much as possible!
Enjoy your day!

  2. I hope your medication is doing it's work and you're on the mend now. Take care of yourself! And think of all the goodies you'll find when you're well enough to thrift shop. Lots to look forward to. :-) What other fun stuff will you enjoy doing when you're up to it?
