Autism: The Trip That Never Ends

Synaesthesia (also spelled synesthesia); from the Greek (syn-) union, and (aesthesis) sensation; is the neurological mixing of the senses. A synaesthete may, for example, hear colors, see sounds, and taste tactile sensations. Although considered a symptom of autism, it is by no means exclusive to those with autism. Synaesthesia is a common effect of some hallucinogenic drugs such as LSD or mescaline.

      I enjoy my Aspie Synaesthesia quite a bit! I love certain words as they taste delicious. I love certain people’s voices and accents as they not only taste nice, but feel nice and my emotions relate.

      However, I also despise certain words and certain peoples voices and words used in a certain context and I get really distressed. My poor gf knows which words to avoid and knows I won’t shy away from instantly telling her to NEVER EVER SAY THAT TO ME AGAIN.

      It’s a interesting part of Aspergers and I enjoy it :)
