It’s been quite a while since my last post. Since then, I started a new job, and it has just been so overwhelming that I haven’t had the words to write anything. There are so many stresses involved with having to interact with people everyday. I read blogs by aspies who are married and/or have children, and I am amazed. How do they do it? the noise, the confusion… I can deal with people to an extent but I definitely need plenty of private time to recover. When I was younger I didn’t realize this and ended up harming many of my relationships. I now know that my frustration with friends and family was largely brought on by not getting enough personal time away from them. These days I plan ahead, making sure I schedule enough private time to offset my social engagements.
