Okay, so I'm working through Parallel Play Growing Up With Undiagnosed Asperger's by Tim Page and I'm just not getting that he is anything other than a quirky guy with issues. Asperger's? Maybe I'm missing something.
"Overstimulation of any sort remains a positive horror, and I am most content either alone, with people I have known a long time, or with the occasional new friend I make and love instantly as though we were born together." pg 180
"Some people make me crazy - pushing their faces into mine, finishing my sentences, repeatedly calling my attention to things that don't interest me and that I don't care to know about - and I can take these distractions for only a short time before I become unhappy and, on occasion, downright rude." pg 181
These descriptions all sound just like . . . me.
Time for a new book.
