Jonathan Greene Thank you for sharing this part of yourself.
My second husband was diagnosed with Aspergers as an adult. No one would have ever thought to have him seen by a doctor as a child. Mostly due to religious reasons. But even his father did as yours did, and explained to people around him, this is how he is, this is what he needs, etc.
He didn’t tell me when we met. I figured it out very quickly. Honestly, I don’t think he ever believed that it was an issue. He didn’t want to work on the things that held him back. It did cause him significant issues in the work place. Social situations were just a no go unless online. The social aspect I was completely fine with, I’m not a fan of crowds or partying much now either.
There are times when you can’t just blurt out whatever you’re thinking, much as you’d like. He just never saw an issue with it lol Always being truthful is one thing, having tact is another. He had zero tact.
Thank you again so much for sharing. I always enjoy reading what you write.
