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...

How do you explain something you can't quantify?

I know my life is different than others. I'm at a loss as to by how much, in what way or to what degree.
I live clueless but it's not by choice.
It's very difficult for me to identify what I feel, put words to what I experience and compare my existence to anyone else's.
I'm staring at a mirror while standing behind the wall.
I can barely see me let alone you.
