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...

Still nervous, waiting, writing

So that is really an odd ceiling with hidden lights and a quasi dome shape. Perplexing and out of place.
There is a sign, pointing to the downstairs, that said "vending". I'm guessing this means vending machines, but I could be wrong. In need of a stiff drink, diet pepsi, I ventured through door #1, down a flight of stairs, opened door #2 hoping to find a pop machine...but no, there was a hallway and two different doors to choose from.
Hey, it will be hard enough making my way back up the stairs and figuring out the turns. I knew two more uncertain doorways was way too much. I quickly called off my foray to soda and high tailed it back to the waiting room before I got lost.
The bathroom...yikes! Very loud, stinky soap and weirdy paper dispenser. Yeah, I need to go wash that stench of my hands... ick, the water smells like sewer. I'm not winning here.
The place is getting busier. There are more like 5 offices on this floor, as new employees came in and opened doors. Gotta hate those high heels on that tile floor!
I'll be called in shortly. Trying not to flap. Feeling highly autistic!!!!
