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...

A Hard Days Night, it's raining it's pouring

Boy, it's all been a bit too much lately. Between the arm pain, procuring and managing meds, doctor, acupuncture and therapy appointments, my son and school, plus trying to manage all the notices and confusing  statements from Social Security,  it's all too much. There hasn't been any downtime. I take that back. I have been finding time to take the puppy and go for hour long walks, in the quiet of the starry nights. It's been a bit of a salvation, really. Time to unwind and I'm think. It's very calming and comforting to stroll carefree in an atmosphere with such low sensory input.
The amount of daylight consumed with problem solving is at an all-time high. The past weekend, while fun-filled with movie, laundry and a ride in the country was part of my usual unwind schedule. I really need to slow it down. I'll do what I can to lower the stress load. As long as outer influences stay low, I'll be able to recover and enjoy life more.
