Living with Asperger’s : Introduction

As I said I would, being Autism Awareness Month,   that I would share with you what’s it’s like being an adult with Asperger’s Syndrome.

First of, what is Asperger’s Syndrome?  It can be my commonly defined as “High Functioning, Mild Autism”

If you saw me walking down the street, you think I’m just a regular guy, for a ginger anyway.  But if you had to stop to talk to me, you would know something was differently…well “off”

I will say that I have had a privileged and bless life.   But growing up was very hard for me.  I had trouble making/ keeping friends.  I was socially isolated.  I had trouble being understood.   Still partially true on some counts.

Through a lot of practice I have been able to find my place in the world…while not truly feeling like I belong.

And if you are an individual with Asperger’s or Autism or someone who loves them :  There is hope.

For the rest of the month I will share with you the traits of Asperger’s that I display and how it has affected me and how I cope with them.

 

If you felt like you learned a lot about me last year…you haven’t heard anything yet.

I was near the end of 2016 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
