i'm 27, married, and have two kids. i'm working on my BFA after years of switched majors. my 5yo was diagnosed with autism a couple of years ago. lately, i've had a bit of a break from the scheduling hell that is the life of a student mother and have been seeing a therapist concerning a long pattern of difficulty with people. she says she thinks that i have aspergers syndrome. this didn't come as a shock exactly but it's been a bit strange as everyone in my family now feels comfortable explaining human interaction to me in slow, patient detail (you see, i said this because you said that and when people say that it makes people feel this way. "** pause** you understand?) and feeling guilty over parenting decisions. it seemed like it might be a good idea to try and find some people who might have an understanding of what i'm going through. hope to get to know some of you and enjoy some interesting discussions.

also, if anyone knows of anything that helps with noise sensitivity and actually works i would love to hear about it. my son and i are driving each other crazy w/ overlapping sound sensitivities. he needs to yell all day and i cringe at strange pitches.

Hi, I have six kids, two with aspergers and I have aspergers too. We have the same problem with noise, I can only listen to one voice or sound at a time.
There are so many similarities and an equal number of differences you will notice with people on this site, but there is also a lot of helpful advice here.
Good luck.
Be proud of who you are.
Tom
