What is Asperger’s?

Asperger’s Syndrome is one of many chronic conditions that can have a dramatic impact on daily life. It is considered an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and has as many definitions as there are people on the spectrum. My flavor has 2 or 3 classical symptoms out of 14 that doctors look for when classifying Autism.

I was diagnosed in 1992 when I was 34; this is considered a very late diagnosis, and doctors are doing much better with young children under 3. Many of the news events you hear about are critical advances that can help toddlers overcome the deficits by the time they start school.

But adults over 18 are not getting the knowledge, wisdom, and skills necessary to continue progress as an adult. This is why I’m a Board Member for Autism Society of South Central Wisconsin, constantly advocating for changing the current system so people like me can contribute to society, instead of looking for a government handout.

Please come back often as I will introduce you to how Asperger’s affects me, and news-worthy information that can help you overcome this increasingly common diagnosis which affects 1 in 50 children.

Diagnosed with Aspergers at 34, this blog chronicles some of the life events I've gone through, and how I hope to help others on the Autism Spectrum. Posts that are personal opinions will be moving to another Wordpress site by the end of the year; for those looking for help with autism, I hope you will continue to visit and spread the word about the articles that most of the time are links to something I read. Please let me know what challenges you are facing, and I will do my best to address them. Thanks for reading my blog!

      Thanks for the vote of confidence! I appreciate knowing how you feel about my posts and encourage you to keep reading. Sorry for the lack of posts, but I will try to add another post on Sunday. This weekend will be quite busy, so it might be very late, or very early Monday morning!

  2. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email.
    I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

      I’m pretty sore I have a link available that hides my actual email address near the bottom of the page. I will confirm that email me is a link, and get back to you.

    A blackout can often occur due to excessive alcohol consumption.
    You can buy aniracetam both as an over the counter memory loss supplement
    or prescription drug. Well, when you’re a person who does creative work for part of your life–you’re willing to give it a try to
    prevent any brain function from deteriorating over time.

      I have never had any problem with alcohol consumption, and no blackouts where I don’t remember what I had done. I’m also not sure of your background, and unless you are a trained doctor is dangerously close to spam. Please try to limit your comments to Aspergers; if you are a doctor, please remember to cite where you found this information, your credentials, or I will be forced to remove the comment.
