Spock and Religion

Just saw a clever post over on CNN on dealing with Asperger's and the Christian faith. Leaving this here more for myself than anything.

Apparently Too Much To Ask

In life, people will back stab you. There's no two ways about it. Yet, it seems, that since I can appear emotionless, withstand a lot of emotional abuse, and not be the easiest or most desirable person to get along with, people just assume that to back stab me amounts to not all that much. Do people just not feel guilt when they see me suffering in my own personal hell from their actions? Am I just that insignificant to others to warrant the basics of human dignity? I don't want to complain, but, seriously, it's getting so far out of hand.

Asperger's and its Effect on my Development

While unscientific in scope (the writer being the subject and the lack of an identical twin without Asperger's to function as a control group), I believe that looking into plausible explanations as to the effects of Asperger's syndrome (AS) on my development can help create a fuller picture of who I am and possibly provide me or the reader additional insights into AS and how to relate to it.

SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT
AS by its very nature creates children who are more one-sided in nature.

Life with Asperger's Syndrome

While I recognize that there is an on-going debate as to whether Asperger's Syndrome (AS) qualifies as a separate diagnosis from High-functioning Autism, I am going from the assumption that they are different and that I qualify under the former.

It's been 7 months since I was finally given the name to my peculiarities. My mother, upon hearing that a relative was pregnant, began telling her all about her experiences with her three kids. She began to describe the unique aspects that I brought as a child.

A summer unlike any other...

So here I am at the Colton SDA church with two weeks left in the canvassing program, and I'm just looking back on it all, just wondering if it was worth it.

Fall is upon us, with weary hands stretching out towards Summer


Classes haven’t even started but it looks like I might be in for another hard semester. I am going to take Statistics, Marriage and Family, New Testament Greek I, New Testament I, Old Testament I, Tennis, Honors Symposium on Ethics, and auditing (meaning I don’t do the homework, just sit in the class) for Human Sexuality. At least I don’t have to do Intermediate Hebrew this semester.
