You are living with Aspergers if anyone on your family or at work has Aspergers Syndrome (AS).
Your experience of life is different from that of others. Others cannot and do not understand the practical and emotional world you live in. If Aspergers is in your marriage, your marriage is shaped by different rules. If it was in your childhood, your formative years were shaped by certain factors. Understanding how people in this spectrum may think, feel and perceive the world helps you understand yourself in those relationships. You can become more skilled in meeting your needs,and those of your loved ones. You can become more flexible and at ease with difference.
Many people are on the Aspergers/Autism spectrum, many more than most people realise. If you think you may be living with Aspergers I encourage you to find out, for your own happiness and well being, and for your family’s. You can do online tests, google information, look at ASPIA’s website www.aspia.org.au or ask me. I can support you, give you information and help you. It can be a relief to talk with someone who understands this aspect of your life.
