Usually these days, and I mean, like 90% of the time, I only get angry in the aftermath of a bad video game experience or, when I think or connect some sensory input with being a threat to my lovely wife and kids. Or, when a little furry extended family member named, Tucker, lifted his hind leg, and decided to mark his territory on a corner of our family tent.
Being diagnosed with ASD / Asperger’s just this year, offered some understanding and access to therapies / training that have opened new vistas. Openness and awareness must be the starting point from which one ventures to develop healthy coping strategies for that which one experiences on the spectrum and that which others experience through / by one on the spectrum.
As I finish up this post, my special little Aspie is angrily displaying his views about having to stop what he is doing, get dressed, so that we can get out the door.
My poor wife and daughter.
