My psychologist looked at me and asked me one question after informing me that she believed I was “on the right track” with my seeking her out regarding an Asperger’s diagnosis. “Is there anything I can help you with right now?”
I told her I just wanted to find other people like me.
Whatever brought you here, whether you are yourself an Aspie woman, or someone who loves an Aspie woman, I hope that I can offer some level of support, interest, comfort, or even companionship through writing and starting discussions on topics that are relevant, engaging, relatable, and important. It is my goal to reach out and form a community of people who are in some way entwined with the unique challenges and gifts that being a woman with Asperger’s Syndrome entails.
I would also love your help as a reader. On the Book List page, I will be adding and updating a list of books related to autism and Asperger’s as I discover new ones. If there is a book you do not see on the list that you think should be there as a valuable resource for the Aspie women community, please comment and let me know! The same goes for resources. Do you know of a new or active support group for autistic women in your area? Let me know!
Thank you so much to all readers!
