About Me

In this blog I say that I have Aspergers. I am on the spectrum, but I have P.D.D NOS. No one knows what that means, a lot of my friends are aspies, and I fit in with those who have aspergers almost like a perfect glove. I’ve found it easier to say I have Aspergers than to try to explain Pervasive Development Disorder Not Otherwise Specified since all it really means to me is “we can’t figure out which category you belong in.” I fit in with fellow aspies & in the Voice Over acting industry the best.

  1. Wow. Am glad to have stumbled upon your blog. I have a 13 year old daughter who is an “aspie”. She too had the PDD NOS diagnosis from about preschool age. I am really looking forward to reading your blog. I know I can never really fully understand everything she thinks and feels but reading your blog may give me a bit of insight as to her perspective on things. I want her to learn to navigate through life with my help if she needs it… And on her won when she doesn’t. Thanks.

    Hello,
    I followed a link of yours to your blog. I am an Aspie with dyslexia and also the Mom to two kids on the spectrum. I grew up not knowing I had Aspergers or dyslexia only when my Mom died and my Dad couldn’t cope did we realise we were all so very different. My Mom had protected us from this world and we had lived in an Autistic bubble for want of a better phrase. My Dad was diagnosed with Autism in his 60’s and then my daughter was also diagnosed.
    My blog is about learning to be me, the person I am. Embracing my Aspieness and learning how to love accept and enjoy being me, after the hurt of not understanding for so long why I felt like an alien. It’s also about accepting others for who they are, understanding we are all unique and all have struggles.
    I find your blog very interesting and just wanted to pop by and say Hi.
    Love and hugs. xx🙂

    I’m a Aspie/Aspergirl, and I’m glad I found your blog! Mine is similar to yours, but somewhat more opinions and how I view the world as opposed to definitions and articles on just AS. Take a look if you want!

    Hi: I have been struggling with mental illness my whole life. My therapist has suggested that I may have RAD (Reactive attachment dis-order) I believed that I learned to disassociate as a coping mechanism as a young child. At 54 I am actually starting to be able to feel emotion and integrate it with my personality Anyways I have been doing a lot of reading about aspergers and it fits me so well The more behaviours described the more I can add to my list. I already have a big list of labels. If I have aspergers can I even know it? Will diagnosis help with growth, change, acceptance. By the way, the yawns get processed in my mind after I stop talking and the people have left. Please forgive my long windedness It would be nice to find social acceptance somewhere.

    P.S. Words have always been very important.

    I’m glad I found your blog. I’m living with my brother-in-law, who is in his early 30s and has Aspergers, and sometimes I don’t really know how to react to him. Reading your blog was like looking into his personality. Something I feel like I am always the one trying to accommodate him, and he never thinks about anybody but himself. Is there anything that can help him think of other people or is this something I’ll just have to live with?

    He won’t clean the house, his brother and I always do. He never drives when we go places, his brother and I always do. He never works around our schedule, we always have to work around his. I know he doesn’t mean to be selfish, but I feel like a lot of his behaviors are extremely selfish and I don’t really know what to do.

    • I am glad my blog is helpful. I appreciate it when people tell me what needs to be done, but that may just be me. When I do try to help without extremely specific instructions I do everything wrong, even though it either seems right to me or improved.

      I don’t know your brother-in-laws perseveration, but if it is one that can make him money, that’s great. Sadly, a lot of people have perseverations about things that can’t make money.

      I have improved a lot with my human social interaction skills, so I need to update the blog.

  7. Hello.

    I’ve nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award on my latest post.

    I don’t know if you’re into such things (it’s OK, if you’re not). Just so you know: by this I mainly wanted to express that I really like to read your blog (I’m also simply curious about 7 facts about you).

    Thank you for your great blog posts!
    Kate.
