They are not your friend if.. Rumours are spread behind your back-sometimes with something privately said in them-that make you feel bad. You are left out of social events. If you are left out of gift exchanges. You are made fun of for the way you dress. (Because, yeah, apparently I dress as if I'm … Continue reading They are not your friend if..
Note: this post is designed not to cause offence. It is designed to document my Aspergers in that I sometimes find social situations difficult. One of the main problems I found with being on spectrum is.... friendships. Enough so that I've now coined the phrase "The friendship problem", the title of this post. (That could … Continue reading The Friendship Problem.
Note: before you read this, I wrote this from my viewpoint of having Aspergers Syndrome. I did not take the potential impact on board, as this was intended as a creative piece. At the end of last year, as I finally began to finish my daily posting challenge, I was researching how I could make … Continue reading A manifesto for Aspergers Syndrome.

Disclaimer: this post contains PR samples, but contains my honest opinion. Prices also vary greatly, to match a range of budget. As someone with Aspergers Syndrome, I often find it hard to know what someone thinks, let alone feels. This can often making buying a gift harder. Anyway: I had a think, and this post … Continue reading Christmas Gift Guide: What Do You Get Relatives For Christmas?*
It started off when I read this post by Cristina over at Criddle Me This; Vision Express were doing a half price eye test! As to a bit of background: this Summer I broke my glasses-only the second time I'd ever done this. (But this was the first major break, where the frames where beyond … Continue reading A good “glasses” experience.
*This post was inspired by this post that Jenny at Jenny In Neverland recently wrote. Christmas, to borrow a film quote, is "a time to be thankful", a time to be "grateful"; I completely agree. Therefore, from my perspective as a female with Aspergers, I thought that I would share with you nine things that … Continue reading 9 things I’m grateful for this Christmas.
