Hi, I'm Timeflyer

Location--Florida, U.S.

Family--husband, daughter

Hobbies--reading, women's rights, history, gardening.

Why I'm here--I have a 28 year old daughter with Asperger's. She was almost diagnosed at 4 years, but not definitively until she was 14. I'm probably on the spectrum myself.

Job--Public librarian. Retired when daughter was 4.

Current obsession--researching cities/towns on west coast (Oregon, Washington, California) with semi-affordable housing, great public transportation, higher ed. and YOUNG people so my daughter can meet a wide range of people close to her age and interests, and her Dad and I can help her become independent. Florida is not that place.

Welcome to WP! And I hope that if you are successful in moving West you still visit this planet.

Hello and welcome.

As a West-coaster myself, if you want great public transportation, I think you're really looking at cities like Boston or New York. I used to live in Boston and we have nothing over here out west like the public transportation they have back east. (Too bad they're expensive.) They do have busses and light rail here, though.

Good luck on your quest!

Welcome to Wrong Planet. I lived in California around 45 years ago. The prices there were going up phenomenally at the time and they went up even further since then. That would not be my best place to move to if only because the price is off the roof. But to each his own.

How well has your daughter progressed towards becoming independent. I never let my condition restrict me. I have always followed a different path.
