About Me…

I have come to realize that a significant portion of my viewers come through the WordPress Reader and therefore have never seen my About pages. Knowing where I have come from is pretty important to understanding my daily posts. So, I am with this post sharing my About bio.

About Me

I am an Independent thinking highly functional person who is deaf and has some serious Aspie traits.  That makes me a pretty rare creature on this earth. I became deaf about 30 years ago and have had Aspie traits all my life but only recently discovered that it had a name. Due to my life experiences I have a somewhat different view of the world that you may find interesting, maybe even enlightening.

I am deaf, but that is not who I am. It is just an affliction that I must cope with on a daily basis. I went deaf thirty-two years ago. Even though it is stressful and extremely tiring at times, I have maintained my roots in the hearing world. I am seldom around other deaf people but enjoy sharing experiences and learning from them when we do meet.

Aspie Traits.  I didn’t discover until recently that many of my lifelong traits have a name attached to them. Looking back I can now understand why I was sometimes quite different than those around me. While I shun eye contact, not very adept at social situations, and don’t care much for crowds, I am for the most part seen as a highly intelligent functioning person (if there is such a thing). Having Aspie traits has given me a different view of the world.  If you want to get a more thorough understanding of Asperger’s Syndrome  and how it affected me, then take a look at my 10 part series “My Journey Into Asperger’s Syndrome.”

I am passionate about many things in my life. Writing and particularly blogging is one of them, so I blog about what gets me up in the morning and what excites me. I blog about my view of the world as my hero Will Rogers taught me to do.

Like all of us, I am a person who is composed of all my life experiences and that is what I write about here.
