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...

Feeling Free

And time to step out and try new things. Maybe it's time to drop the labels and just give it a go, no excuses to fall back on. I've been thoroughly enjoying myself lately. Seems the locked door is now open and I can stroll with ease.
Feeling wanderlust and the need to travel and drive away, anywhere near. The weather is too nice to be indoors as I watch my piles increase in length, width and breadth. I decided to cut back my medication a bit and ob serve how I'm feeling. Life on Celexa is like a 4 x 4 garden with 3 inch floors covered by a pane of glass. Without Celexa, it's 4 foot high, brilliantly colored, oddly shaped creations.
Oh, I wanna art so bad yet I have 3 separate projects that require my attentions, that and the perfunctory phone calls and forms to fill out.
I've started riding a bike and made it once around the loop, no less! Specific leg muscles doth protest thus I take my turning wheels slowly and for meager bits of time. My speed and duration will surely increase albeit a snails pace, it be.
Hunger seems more regulated as does sleep.
My writing project is going along very well. Funny, I noted I get the same pangs of insecurity and "don't foul this up" when I go to write, same as when I start an art project. Oh, my heads swimming with art ideas but I must resort to cleaning my room and my aforementioned timely jobs primo.
I smile more these days.
Therapy con
tinues to progress into semi-placid, deep waters. I know not what lurks below. Probably a sedate Kraken. Lol
Less TV and more outside these days. I'm looking at taking up fishing again. I spent many good days just floating on the water or standing upon a shore and casting lines. I miss it, that certain peacefulness. Hopeful very soon. Yay!
