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...

A little insight and perspective

So, I was thinking about the times I'd talked with my therapist about the ratio of kind/nice people vs cruel people. I think I can easily surmise that my ex's cruelty was anomalous and that the vast majority of people would never sink that low.
Faith in humanity partially restored. I'm a naive target and I know it. I'll always have to be careful not to become friends with takers and abusers.
