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...

I don't close my eyes in front of other people

It's another one of those Aspie things that I can't logically explain but it's near impossible for me to close my eyes in front of others, at church or at any public gathering.
I remember back in school when the teacher would ask the class to close their eyes and think of such and such. I never could. It does make me feel awkward in church but it's something I can't change.
Just sayin'
