An Aspergian’s Thoughts On Anger

  I can be a very angry person. It doesn’t take much, either. It’s not a chip on the shoulder thing, but rather an aspergian thing. The common misconception about us is that we are emotionless, but the reality is that we feel emotion VERY deeply. Now, whether that’s happiness, sadness, or anger depends on […]

An Aspergian’s Thoughts On Loneliness

This is one of the more challenging emotions of Aspergers. It’s the worthless, lifeless feeling that you can have when you’re the oddest, weirdest, and most unlike anyone else in the places that you frequent in your daily life. I don’t do the things most people do my age (My life occupation is a writer, […]

An Aspergian’s Thoughts On His Fears

I wrote this while I was sitting at Westfield Mall in Annapolis, Maryland. As you’d expect from me, I hate malls because I hate crowds. There’s too many people, and there’s too much commotion. My family can’t stand it, because they expect me to shop and be functional, but when I get into a mall I […]

An Aspergian’s Thoughts On Love (Whatever that is)

I’m an aspergian. No friends, no real relationships, and lacking the ability to even begin to attain one. So, why in the world would I be writing about love? Well, because I don’t know what it is. I can’t sense it. For the “normal” person, this seems crazy, but for us it’s part of what is […]

An Aspergian’s Confession, Part Two

(This is the second part of An Aspergian’s Confession. If you haven’t, you should read the first part here https://marylandpoetblog.wordpress.com/2016/11/07/an-aspergians-confession-part-one/) I am a puppet, moving only by the strings of my fragile mind. Thin, frail strings, and when they break, so do I. I fall, I crash. I die. But no blood is shed, no […]

An Aspergian’s Thoughts On What He Thought Was Friendship

I’ve been enjoying blogging more as of late, because I’m combining my love of poetry with my own aspergian twist. I’m seriously considering collecting these poems for an anthology, but that’ll take some time. Anyway, to the story. (And in respect of the people I’m speaking of, I will not use their actual names) Two years […]

An Aspergian’s Thoughts On Emotions

This picture is very, very personal to me. Mainly, because it sums up what it’s like to live with Aspergers. Almost every moment I’m outside my home, I’m pretending to be someone else: this happy, open person who wants to connect with you and make friends and all that good stuff. Deep down, I’m really, […]

An Aspergian’s Thoughts On A Neurotypical World and Relationships

This is a difficult topic for me to talk about, mainly because it’s arguably the biggest problem for Aspergians. I’ve lost so many friends, and turned away an unknown amount, simply because of my aspergian tendencies. The lack of eye contact, the rigidness and awkward appearance in social situations, the fidgeting/hand flapping/excessive motions, and the […]
