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...

Part ll

I don't know how to put words to all the things going on in my head.
I do know there are many kind people in the world that do want to help.
I don't know what I need or what type of help I'm allowed or allotted to ask for.
I do know I've received great assistance at times.
I don't know how to speedily, easily pick out my clothes everyday.
I do know most days, it's raining on the inside.
I don't know the words to the emotions.
I do know I feel deeply
I do know I'm different.
I don't know how much I can change or if that's even a desire or possibility.
I do know each day is hard and difficulty.
I don't know how to make it ant easier.
