Connecting the Dots--What is it like to live with Asperger's Syndrome?
Here is something I wrote about myself earlier this year. Enjoy!

Hi, Nancy. This is Sparrow (I just joined the FAM list).

I just wanted to say that I really liked your essay. I think a couple of things you said will be quite useful to me, as well: the bit about approaching conversations the way news anchors approach the news, and the bit about remembering what lawyers advise clients who are going in to court.

I often have a problem with talking too much. I'll go into a situation telling myself, "I'm not going to talk too much this time." Then, in the situation, I catch myself "running on at the mouth." Afterwards, I feel like kicking myself for making such a fool of myself yet again.

I think the things you mention in your essay may be helpful suggestions for me. Thank you!
