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...

My Journey to Loving Myself Following Sexual Abuse | Psych Central

My Journey to Loving Myself Following Sexual Abuse | Psych Central
This is an excellent article on something I've mentioned more than once, self-loathing. It strikes me that I have yet to make peace with my body. I blamed and hated my physical body for feeling pain and sickness and causing/ exhibiting odd sensations (undiagnosed autism, body memories).
 Boy, it takes a lot of effort to walk into This room of thought. It is full of erroneous, negative messages. Time to open the door and walk in.
