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...

The Unreachable Aspergian

There are some traits that I perform very well. One of them is, I can become completely Unreachable. I used to only experience the negative, out-of-my-control aspects...those times I felt so overly sensatized that withdrawal was a natural, unwanted characteristic.
Oh, it continues to play into the innate defenses I've been born with, but there are times when it feels good, just, right and downright healthy.
I see and sense who I am and what my needs are and where I want to go.
It's about being unbridled, unbeholden and unaffected by someone else's opinions and drives. It feels like the sage autonomy has risen.
I answer to no one and feel at ease within myself, complete, unbothered.
Aspergers can often be more blessing than curse. Think about it. See it in the light.
  Be well my fellow autistics. Let your light shine if only for yourself.
