Blog - Musings of an Aspie…One woman’s thoughts about life on the spectrum.


I was 42 when I discovered that I have Asperger's Syndrome. When I visit the zoo, I always leave thinking that maybe I was a primatologist in another life. Or a monkey. I've been my own boss since I was 18. Statistics fascinate me. I own three pairs of running shoes and no dress shoes. Somehow I managed to find the one person in 7 billion who understands me and marry him. And stay married for 25 years.
The single most frequent response I got from professors: "I never thought of it that way". Usually followed by a puzzled look and a change in topic. I'm the lone confirmed aspie in a family of NTs.
When I was 34, I realized that my eyes are green with gold flecks, not brown like I'd always thought. I'm afraid of heights but not snakes. My daughter thinks I'm weird but loves me anyhow. Sometimes she says, "People don't believe you're real when I tell them about the stuff you say". Some days I spend more time talking to my dog than to other people. The last time I wore make-up was the day I got married.
I have a lot to say.

Get to know me:
