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...

Mental Detox

About once a month, I lay down for a brief rest mid-afternoon only to fall into a deep slumber and not awaken until sometime the next morning.
Yesterday, I laid on the bed to rest my back around 4 pm and slept till 6 am this morning. There were a few bouts were upon I awoke and felt hunger but sleep won over hunger each time. I never got out of bed for 14 hours.
The deep sleeps are riddled with dreams. It feels like a mental detox as my brain is allowed to destress and play out a plethora of new information gathered throughout a most busy week. Okay, yeah, it does kinda feel like a self-induced coma that I have the ability to break if I wanted to.
I woke this morning feeling very relaxed and cleansed in some ways. My body and brain know what it takes to heal.
