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...

Busy Wonderful Day

Too tired to write much as the day seemed to be one constant errand run, needless to say I received word that I'll be getting rental assistance, section 8 voucher!!!!! This was the large, looming uncertainty that continually weighed heavy on my mind. With this assistance I and my son, will become permanent Oregon residents and not end up homeless or in a shelter!!!! I sign papers next week. We will also be moving to our own 2 bedroom townhouse...Yay!!!!
