The reason I decided to create a blog was because I talk with my family quite frequently about the things that I have to face. It’s all about trying to get them to understand what it’s like to live in my shoes. And as family, they do the best they can to appreciate how difficult it is. But with every time the conversation draws to a close, they tell me, “you need to start a blog. So many people could benefit from your experiences and understanding of things”. Without being too stuck-up about it, I think they are right. Many people have told me that I am more than capable of helping others understand their difficulties and giving them the confidence, that they’re not alone.
With my blog name being the big give away (and quite possibly the reason you have found yourself here), you’ve already learnt that I have Asperger’s Syndrome. So being one of the many people in this world that live with it, I have chosen to listen to my family and write about my experiences in hope to bring an understanding to people about what it is like in the eyes of an Aspie. You may be a parent with a child who has Asperger’s, looking for help with learning about it, or you may be someone who lives with it themselves and would just like a bigger understanding and possibly multiple perspectives. Or you might well just be curious. Either way, I hope to give you something enjoyable to read, along with it being an insight to Asperger’s Syndrome.
