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...

Life after the Narcissist

I'm learning more and more about life with a narcissist. I mean, it's just plain mean and cruel for a Narc to prey on the emotionally vulnerable or already-been-damaged. It's like adding insult to injury.
Nothing like feeling you've found the perfect spouse only to be ensnared in a trap that slowly eats you away and erodes any positives you've worked hard for.
It truly was a vicious trap made to look like a caring, rescue mission.
It feels good to know that that was not love or anything resembling it. I have faith that there are good, healthy, caring people out there now that I realize the last twenty years were manipulation, lies and mental defect.
I'm happy to be moving on. Glad to be learning how to deal with these destructive Narcs. Learning how to recognize all the warning signs.
She never loved me, not once. She never put anyone's needs above her own, not once. She will continue to try and control and manipulate because it's been working for her.
Yeah, my current need for therapy doesn't revolve around years of childhood sexual abuse, rather, I need therapy to unravel the sick twistedness, of a most unhealthy and toxic relationship. Narcissist are the lowest of the low. can they  live with themselves without a conscious, without empathy, without the ability to love anyone other than themselves?
