Comments: This pic is a good one of me, taken a few years ago. I'm struggling with a bit more weight, and don't usually "fix myself up" like I did here.

After years of thinking I had something horribly wrong with me, I am now learning to nurture myself as an Aspie, but I'm afraid my progress is a bit slow. I'm probably an "Atypical Nonneurotypical". I have desires to work in religous communications, but the social stuff is extremely difficult. I'm trying to reconnect with The Humans, after quite a bit of isolation (didn't even go to my son's wedding....sigh....thought I'd ruin it for them). There are several days when I just want to stay away from Everyone and throw paint or clay around, or write a best-selling horror novel.
