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...

Quondam, another word for "former friend"

Ahh, now I no longer need to say "ex-friend", as I can use the more appropriate quondam friend:)

- Posted using BlogPress from my iPad


  1. I have loads of these, though haven't even had any temporary to become quondam in 3+ years. Sometimes I think that is better than becoming dependent on the friendship and then suffering the loss, but I am so desperately lonely... :-(
    I wish you to never have need of this word again. But you do have at least one online friend who will definitely never be quondam.... an annoying one that sticks to your shoes like chewing gum. ::wave:: :-)

  2. Lol, KatKnip...ahh, how thy words amuse me and make me smile:)
    I got tired of saying ex-friend, sounds kind of silly. Now, quondam sounds more like it! It rolls off the tongue much easier:)
    I've been amusing myself, quite nicely with a few blogs and a few facebook pages to keep my mind working. Still pretty darn sick with the Lyme but the sun is shining!
    Thanks for reading! And writing!!

  3. I'm sorry you're still sick. I wish I could do something to make you better. But I'm glad you're finding things to do and enjoying the sunshine. Maybe it's time to take a blankie and some art supplies outside and create something fun and pretty while enjoying Spring? I'd love to see more of your art when you feel up to it! :-) I kind of burnt out on my Thing (crocheting) a year ago after making an insanely huge and pointless project, but I need to keep busier to keep my mind off worrying so much so I've been trying to push myself back into it.
