It’s been a busy, busy last two months. I feel guilty that I haven’t written anything, and even now I feel like I’m stealing time to sit down and write. That diagnosis of Asperger’s is provisional, and I did meet with the psychologist I was referred to from the neuropsychologist. The new guy is young,…… Continue reading December 8, 2016: New year, new opportunity?
Yesterday, I returned a call I missed from Dr. Neuropsychologist. While I was driving to work, he diagnosed me with Asperger’s. So there it is. Asperger’s. A non-surprise, but a shock all the time.

Social life did not come at all naturally to her. She used her formidable intelligence to become an excellent mimic and actress,…… Continue reading It’s Different in Girls
My partner went out of town this morning. I am by myself at home for the next three nights. On one hand, I miss the noise and the ruckus that another person brings.
