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 103

The reason I started talking about exercise is that since I started "working out", incorporating stretching and strengthening, I have had insane, constant protein cravings.
I used to eat quite a few fruits and vegetables but now, all my body wants is protein. I cook up a pound of hamburger and eat a small bowl, liberally sprinkling Parmesan cheese and calling it a meal, one of 5 small meals everyday.
Gluten free graham crackers with peanut butter, peanut butter toast and slabs of melted cheese on toast, lightly salted almond, along with occasional banana and chocolate donut have been the totality of my diet this past week.
I can only surmise that my muscles require it and I oblige. Protein is the only thing that tastes worthy, tastes delish. Maybe that's a good sign.
