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 Diary entry 102

I started being concerned about my lack of muscle tone. Muscles start to atrophy after 3 days of inactivity, or so I read. Last week I realized how many weeks and months I have has physical exercise, aka, normal physical movement. So I began doing light, very light, active range of motion exercises for 2-5 minutes at a time.
Going up and down stairs, making sure I used my arms to lift and carry something, stretches, and such.
I know I've been getting up and forcing myself to move 100% but I realized I have to push through even harder, like 110%, to strengthen my body. Tears, yeah, every day so much struggle and effort and it's still not enough. Day after day after day. It really wears on a person.
  Anyway, it's just another change I've been working on.
