DISCOVERING ME- A PERSONALUNDERSTANDING ANDDISOVERY OF WHAT ITMEANS TO HAVEASPERGERS
(A book of poems and other musings – Version 2.0 Dated 2012-08-20)By Emma Jane
 
To those that have read my first book of poems dealing with my personal journey into understandingof what it means to have Aspergers. I hope you will like these poems too. You may notice that someof the poems are similar in theme to others I have written, only from a different angle or the issue wasonly fleetingly mentioned before. The reason I have included them, is this. Aspergers is a verycomplex experience for me. Ask any who has it, I am sure they will respond the same. Which in turnalso makes me more complex to others in return. No one fully understanding who I am.But I too, in many respects am still figuring out what is and is not related to my condition and how itis affecting me in what way. And I wish to let others see this and some of my very deep thoughts thatin some ways I cannot say face to face even to my loving parents. Knowing some of it may hurtthem. It may make them feel guilty at not been able to do more. Even though they went beyond whatmost would have done and more. So under another name I can let it all out, with no one knowing it isme. At the same time feelings I have wondered if I wanted to face again, when there was no need to.I am not hiding from it but, the memories still hurt with thinking of some of the things. Though Ihave tried to not let it define me. I am me, and I just happen to have Aspergers. In some ways I think have gotten it right and in others, lets just say it is a work in progress. But if it helps another it will beworth it.To those who have not read the first book of poems. Do so, it is also free to download. Between thisand that book you will have a better understanding. But remember each person who has this is notexactly the same as another. Thats what makes it so hard to pin point this condition as well. I canonly give you my version as I see it. But another may disagree that some of it describes their version.A lot I have taken to be normal. No matter how strange things have gotten. Only now do I realisethey are not the way they should be. Now finding the words I am putting them to paper, in the hopesit may help others find their answers and open they eyes of others. Aspergers is a real condition, apartof the Autism spectrum and not one's imagination as some seem to think. Even by some misguided professionals and there are many out there. It cannot be cured, but we can learn to survive society inour own way. Sometimes we can fool you into thinking we are just like you. But other times youknow we are not.Gain an education. Before you may have to learn it the hard way. For the figures for those affected by this is growing. You are at a higher risk of having a child with it than when your parents had you.But even if you don't, you will have hopefully learned to accept that not everyone is like you. Thatmany think differently from you and even me. Who knows you may come realise that you may beone of us too.
