If Asperger’s Could Write You A Letter

Here’s a great post I just discovered:

Good morning,

I know neither one of us wants to talk to each other, but it’s that time again. You guessed it! Time for you to get out of bed and face the world.

Unfortunately, we both know that you and I would have to face each other again. I have to spend all day tiring out your brain, while you have to go through your day with my chaos. You live with my chaos every day.

There are many parts of you I affect in a negative way. Let’s go over a few examples (although you already know them)

Going out to eat (or even eating at home) with me around, you’ll have poor motor skills, leading to a messy table, hands, and pants.

Taking a walk in the park is when I’ll make sure all the dogs are barking and all the fire engines go off. That overwhelming smell from the tree you thought was gone? Yeah, it’s still here. Dirt is going to get in your shoe. Pretty much all of your sensory issues are going to affected when we come here.

Sitting in a doctor’s office. Ah man, this one is hard for you. When the doctor is not exactly ready  at 3:30, but that was the time of your appointment, you’re going to freak out. Your rocking, wringing hands, heavy breathing, and leg shaking like it wants to run somewhere will be obvious to everyone. This one is hard, and I get my workout for the day,

There are many bad things about me, but I have a good side.
