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...

I've come noWhere near the point where the positives Outweigh the negatives

  1. This makes me so sad. I want to pour buckets of sunshine over your head and throw you into a pool full of hugs. I want to wrap you in a blankie of health and give you a pet leprechaun to grant all your wishes. You so deserve to be happy and I wish I had a magic wand to make it so!

  3. Interesting comment, my friend. I've never really pondered that question, so I'll have to give it some thought. I do believe in the basic principle of yin yang, which is basically a 50/50 good/bad proposition.

    You may not yet have reached the point, where the positives outweigh the negatives, but consider, are you feeling better than you did 5 years ago? If so, then that is still good progress, and is an indication that one day, you will feel that you have more positives, in your life.
