I hate having Aspergers Syndrome. (And a thank you to Twitter.)

This post-or the idea of-came to me after a long day, when everything just seemed to be going wrong, and I couldn't seem to match up to what would be expected of me. This post does not reflect what I think generally overall; it reflects what I felt at the time.    I hate having Aspergers Syndrome; I … Continue reading I hate having Aspergers Syndrome.

‘They Said I Was A Freak’; a poem to a friend.

Over on several blogs I've seen several Bloggers posting their original poetry. So, here's one I wrote myself-I don't recall doing so-which I thought I should post it. I believe I wrote this whilst thinking about how hard it is to make friends, being a teenager with Aspergers Syndrome; a friend comes to mind when … Continue reading ‘They Said I Was A Freak’; a poem to a friend.

Here’s why I love having Asperger’s.

I know what you're thinking: "What's she on about now?" I'm tired of being told indirectly that I should feel shame for having Asperger's-such as being mocked for my dull voice, mimicked in my knowledge, or people trying to force eye contact to make me feel uncomfortable. Because being on the autism spectrum is pretty … Continue reading Here’s why I love having Asperger’s.

“What does it feel like to have Aspergers?”

"What does it feel like to have Aspergers?"  It's a question that I've been asked previously, and one that I've struggled to respond to. To have Aspergers is completely subjective, as it's a condition that's on a Spectrum; so what I may write in this post may differ from the experience of other people. It … Continue reading “What does it feel like to have Aspergers?”

Why I love rock; a fan girls opinion. 

As part of my blog content, you can probably see that I'm starting to cover music. Music is a part of my lifestyle-so that I listen to it everywhere I go, collect Vinyl, interview musicians, etc. But I'm often asked "why do you like Rock?" (because, well, I have Aspergers, and noise doesn't compute well, … Continue reading Why I love rock; a fan girls opinion. 

Here’s how I struggle with Asperger’s Syndrome.

For all of my posts about Asperger's Syndrome, I haven't really posted about what I struggle with, as a direct result of the condition. Because being positive matters, right? (Please don't tell me otherwise.) But I wanted to post more than just a superficial impression, and what it is I struggle with most.   People: … Continue reading Here’s how I struggle with Asperger’s Syndrome.

A note to fellow Aspergians like me.

Let's just have an honest chat, shall we? From the 'aspergic' blogger whose blog you've been reading, to you, the presumably neurotypical reader. (Or maybe you're a fellow 'Aspergian'-in that case, welcome! You are among friends here 😃) Having Aspergers Sydrome is hard; over on Twitter, I saw one parent saying that her son refers … Continue reading A note to fellow Aspergians like me.

What not to say to people with Aspergers Sydrome. 

Following on from my aspiration to be like Nicole from Thrifty Vintage Fashion, I wanted to write this post. Ever since I was diagnosed as having Aspergers Sydrome, there's been a few comments which I'm not really sure how to describe. Combining some, I've come up with a list of things of what not to … Continue reading What not to say to people with Aspergers Sydrome. 

Living with Aspergers Sydrome; here is what I’ve learnt. 

As I've said for about four years now-out of the five I've been running this-I've written about Lifestyle. This is an aspect of my lifestyle that I have written about indirectly, never fully in a post; I have Aspergers Sydrome. I was diagnosed in January 2015-after a long time waiting-and I think it deserves its … Continue reading Living with Aspergers Sydrome; here is what I’ve learnt.
