The revelation that I am an aspergarian has been like finding myself at the theater of my life, seated comfortably in a mezzanine seat, viewing things straight forward and as I have been directing them to be viewed. Then, someone taps me on the shoulder and tells me to change seats, moving me closer to the stage and a bit to the side, where I get a different perspective on events. Suddenly I see that things that I once thought were formidable and stable, are but two dimensional stage sets. Oddly, the play makes more sense from this perspective.

That word above is simply the sound of me clearing my throat.  “Figuratively speaking”

This is to be a blog about me and my reflections on life with Aspergers. As with any of my blogs, I make no promises as to how often I will post – I only promise to apply a certain level of written English grammar and usage.

Having been raised 10 years in a Lutheran school, this feels completely narcissistic. So to delineate: I will be covering my childhood and youth, observations on my family history, my experiences combating my Aspergarian tendencies, including my struggle with depression and the great success I had with “self-help.” It is this very self-help that I am sure causes many to be surprised at this diagnosis – but let me assure you that if you read and follow How to Win Friends And Influence People, it does actually work. I think ol' Dale wrote it for us Aspies before we had a name.

That's it for now. Stay tuned for more.
