Hi all,

If there was doubt about my aspieism it is gone now. I've been with my partner, friend etc for over 20 years now and I'm such a dumb***. I escalate arguments because I don't understand. I need to have words spoken correctly, leave out a word and I don't get it. Seems that I cannot get some things from the context. Odd because I consider myself of above average intelligence and understand written words well. I shut down when things get emotional....I literally don't have feelings when I should. This week I will try to not be critical of others, I'm cannot expect perfection from them. This week I will not speak until I have said it to myself first and not say it if it is not nice. Sometimes my straightforwardness is misunderstood.

I have learned many coping skills over the years without even knowing it. I have many more to learn, perhaps learning the small talk routine better will be the most beneficial to me. Maybe I need to view myself as an actor playing a part? And what is this blog thing?

Bill
