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...

Post Vacation Oddities

My 12 year old grew taller. My puppy looks skinnier with long legs and slight of weight. And the house which I am a guest in, looks too big.
Maybe it's those small hotel rooms, driving hours in the mountains or just a whole different set of parameters but there is a lot of space in here. My guest bedroom alone looks like it should sleep 7 people instead of just one.
I continue to try and fail, to acclimate to these cold temperatures. My physical ailments seem to be a constant rather than a passing phase, so I'm learning to deal with feeling this physically awful.
I'm not as dizzy, no longer feeling like I'm flying in an airplane unless I hear some white noise from the humidifier or furnace. Funny how that sound triggers the sensations of flight.
The adjusting continues....
