I’ve been seeing a number of concerning posts these days about people pushing what is essentially exile as a solution to a lot of our social problems.
Today is the day after World Mental Health Day. I’m not sure why I missed it.
We use the word blessed way too lightly. I struggle with Aspergers. I have many reasons not to use the hashtag #blessed
Musical therapy is a generally misunderstood treatment method for an individual struggling with autism, yet it shouldn’t be dismissed while talking about alternatives. Strugglers with autism, who receive musical therapy, have the potential to change in personality and learning aptitude. Music associates with the non-verbal piece of our brains, making it an ideal match with […]
A sort-of meltdown at a social I attended a few months ago confirmed that my struggles on the autism/Aspergers spectrum really suck on a physical level (also, welcome to the early 30s Mr. Parsons). By the way, a social in Manitoba Canada is a provincial slang term for a huge kickin’ party to fund-raise for […]
Rituals, routine, and obsessions are a featured characteristic of those who struggle with Aspergers. This is unfortunately one of my weaknesses known as getting stuck. It is also an occasional strength when writing or talking about something I’m passionate about. In order to cope with anxiety and stress that comes from the crazy nutty world […]
I attended a geek/fandom-based bible study last year. It’s a small group full of Christians who are into geeky things. It’s pretty cool actually. We were talking about Pokemon, Jonah Chapter 4, and making peace that evening. I’m not a Pokemon fan but I have tried one of the early RPGs on a Gameboy and […]

Homework is Daft Punk’s […]
So I was talking to a person who I thought was a friend. We had gone back years. He saw how I grew and struggled with Aspergers Syndrome throughout the years but I made the error of not telling him until a slightly heated conversation we had. I still believe he saw how I tried […]
Is autism or autism awareness on the rise? Let’s talk and get right into it as there are a ton of factors to consider when discussing the two subjects rising up. On one hand, any disease has the potential to undergo a similar process of awareness. Take cancer for example. It is possible cancer could […]
Disclaimer: The words in the post may or may not be edited as I’m still trying to figure things out with the Lord’s help. I understand it’s a very sensitive subject and will be eventually consulting with Christians who minister with mental abuse or work in autistic ministries to help me polish this post. Not […]
“Look at me…LOOK AT ME!” My supervisor has a way of getting people’s attention. He could be wondering why or if my right eye has taken five minutes to itself. As you guess, I have trouble with eye contact ‘I’m looking at you, idiot.’ I thought to myself wishing I could say that out loud. […]
