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...

The thing I've wanted most

It's weird because it's so simple, elementary. Maybe I feel foolish saying something most people take for granted.
What I've forever searched for is someone to talk to. I have so much to say. I want to be heard, listened to, valued and respected. I just want someone I can easily talk to about anything, everything, all the dark as well as the light. Maybe even more than love...I wish for someone to talk to.
