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...

And it's wonderful

To be able to pour myself a drink and wander out in the parking lot to unwind whilst staring at a gorgeous, peaceful starry night.
Trying to sleep with Rosebud..poor puppy, I was petting her so much She couldn't sleep and ran off to sleep with the boy, lol.
I'm unwinding, relaxing. Tomorrow I meet with a liason at the school who will help me find community resources. Later, I pick little guy up early from school for a therapy intake appointment for him.
Overall, it was a good day...very stressful but with enormously positive outcomes.
God is good
And I am Awesome!!!!
