About

A few weeks ago, at the age of 30, I was diagnosed with Aspergers.

This blog is intended to share insights into my mind that would never be visible from the outside.

Looking for a place to start? Here are some good links!
-A good summary attempting to explain my brain: What is Aspergers?
-Breaking the news to my friends and family: What Aspergers Means To Me
-The beginning of the end of my dreadlocks: What does cutting my dreadlocks have to do with Aspergers?

If you have any questions, general feedback or suggestions for blog topics you’d like me to cover you can email me at:

You can also find me on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter 🙂

  2. I have felt my whole life as if I am swimming against the current and being knocked around by everyone.
    It was only 3 years ago that I learned that I have been high functioning autistic…which helped a little.
    But I am truthfully exhausted living in a world were blind unconscious people are classified as the norm and I am suppose to be like them or be alone.
    I have been an open hearted and caring person…while the so called “norm” on the other hand seem to be taking, self absorbed and totally blind to anyone but their own shallow importance.
    Delores Cannon talks about the “waves”,and the light beings…maybe the REAL TRUTH HERE IS THAT WE ARE THE NEW EVOLUTION OF MANKIND…NOT THE BAD LINK.

  4. I’m so happy to have found you!
    I have a 20 year old and a 14 year old who are high functioning. I look forward to watching your videos and reading your articles. It’s important for Aspies to help each other. So many doctors don’t understand people on the spectrum, and go to medication only. Keep doing great work!!

  5. Hi Paul,
    I just found your videos on YouTube… i am an NT with a beautiful, wonderful man who i love so much and who we both suspect is on the spectrum. we have been together for one year. Your videos are helping me so much to understand what my partner needs from me and how to help him understand my needs too. i have always known what a beautiful and unique person my partner is, he is genuine and smart and kind and funny and cool but i had been struggling to know what he really felt about me because he finds expression very difficult. your videos have helped me understand so much and to recognize what his way of showing love means and how to help him believe that i love and support him and feel lucky to receive all the special qualities he has because he is on the spectrum.

    i get very emotional watching your videos because it hurts to think of how people who are kind and loving and giving will still feel left out and disconnected and isolated. my partner is such a cool person and i want him to feel good about himself and included and valued for who he really is, because he deserves to.

    i am a bit scared that for him being with me as an NT means that he feels under pressure to wear the mask as you describe for my benefit, and i really wonder about your advice for striking the balance in a relationship so that he feels he can be his authentic self while still responding to me, and i can help him find ways to meet my needs that work for him without having to feel like he is wearing the mask and that it is the mask i am responding to instead of his true self.

  6. Hello Paul,
    Second attempt at posting; I never get technology to work first time. I have what is called, “A Very Late Diagnosis Of Asperger’s Syndrome.’ Its a prize for suffering 65 years of life on an alien planet. I saw your YouTube video on abandonment. Yes, I understand. People I have ‘known’ for years, tell me that enough is enough and leave. I work for them, I give them stuff, then I need something – oh dear, another lost cause. Some people have the emotional depth of a wet tissue and we people with ASD are the problem? Well, I don’t care actually. I learnt a long time ago a pet will be better than a human, and growing flowers and making artwork is more worthwhile than all the gossip and idle chatter neurotypicals seem to need. They are so boring! I have a post-graduate degree, but few contacts. I used to work but it drove me into insanity. Eventually, all the crazymaking of others got to me. The bullies see us coming, the users and abusers take their pound of flesh. Now I am returning to pottery and painting, ever so slowly as my fragile state finds roots. I hope to get better soon, I am on chemotherapy, I am going into another surgery end of September – another piece of flesh, another scar on a body that looks like a shark attack victim. But, it is those scars in my brain that are the worst. I have a recurring dream of falling into deeply scarified ground and being buried alive – such is life.
