Hi jmfoster. Before I went to be diagnosed I started getting nervous. Then I told myself, "Why get nervous?" If I have it, I have it, it's not going to change me one way or the other. There are other things that can sound like Asperger's. Even being gifted has traits remarkably similar to it. And, g...

I like being unique. I would not want to get rid of Asperger's---it has made me who I am today. The obsessive interests I have are so much fun for me that I could not imagine life without them. I enjoy playing music as a result of being obsessed with electronic keyboards and dulcimers. It actually s...

I noted some of the rocky terrain in some of them and they reminded me of places my grandfather desc...

We have quieter Thanksgivings, though my kids get kind of roudy. This time we had me and my wife, our two sons, and my wife's parents and my parents at the table. But it wasn't noisy. However, when I was listening to CNN later on I was trying to hear the latest on the hostage situation and because o...

This will be a strange one. But when I was 10 years old to about the time I was 12 or 13, I was fascinated by the fictional character of Captain Quint in Jaws. By the time I was 13, I had even grown sideburns like his and sported a moustache in junior high school---I matured early. I came to appreci...

I have to admit that I too sometimes ignore the phone. If I am in the bathroom, or involved in something where I don't want to be bothered, I will often let it ring. At first I thought I was being rude, but in looking at this more closely, I would be rude to myself to answer it when I didn't want to...

When I was growing up in the 1970s, I loved to collect the old horror comics with the graphic illustrations. I am not a morbid person, but these gave me ideas for haunted house/funhouse dioramas for my love of dark rides at amusement parks. Today, I am working on a scale model of an amusement park, ...
