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...

Learning to have fun

I have always taken life way too seriously. One of my new goals, and I've thought about this a lot, is to do a little something everyday just for fun, something I enjoy and find fulfilling without a deep, rigid meaning.
This new way of thinking is completely and utterly foreign to me. Every item, every thought has to have some purpose in the grand scheme of themes. Fun is an oddish word that I am hoping to learn about. Finding out what I enjoy is like walking into very dark woods....enjoy is another word, concept, feeling that I have scant experience with.
So, these are my lofty goals. I know they may seem like everyday things but they are huge for this Aspie.
Processing and preparing for this new stuff.
