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...

Facebook and those who don't post profile pictures

I worry about people who never post actual photos of themselves in their profiles. I can only wager that they feel some sort of insecurity, low-self-esteem, some discomfort within themselves and they are afraid to show themselves.
I have fb friends that I've known online for years but I haven't a clue as to what they look like. It bothers me that I can put no face to a name. Seeing is believing, et all.
Are they hiding? On the run from the law? Relatives? Have they done things that they want to keep hidden, secret and unknown.
Do they choose to languish in obsecurity?  Or feel it best not to be seen for who they are? Do they frown upon their physical appearance, believing others will judge them superficially? Are their jobs top secret? Are they involved with the witness protection program?
I wonder
