High Functing Autism

People with high-functioning autism or Asperger's syndrome do not have the delayed language development that's typically found in people with autism. In addition, people with high-functioning autism have average or above average intelligence. However, they may show other behaviors and signs similar to what's seen with other types of autism: delay in motor skills lack of skill in interacting with others little understanding of the abstract uses of language, such as humor or give-and-take in a conversation obsessive interest in specific items or information strong reactions to textures, smells, sounds, sights, or other stimuli that others might not even notice, such as a flickering light Unlike people with other forms of autism, people with high-functioning autism or Asperger's syndrome want to be involved with others. They simply don't know how to go about it. They may not be able to understand others' emotions. They may not read facial expressions or body language well. As a result, they may be teased and often feel like social outcasts. The unwanted social isolation can lead to anxiety and depression.

Eye Lashes

I have beautiful, thick, long eyelashes. Or I should say...had them.
I had a horrible migrain on saturday and took some tylenol pm and some ambien so I could sleep. When sleep I did. I guilted my dad into visiting me the next day?
I wore some appauling lingurie for David?
Then I was putting on my makeup for church when I realised that my eyelashes on mu left eye were cut, knobby, chopped. Gone!!
No more ambien for me

Sorry...I am still laughing about this.

Wow, I've heard some pretty crazy Ambien stories, but that's a new one! The question is...did you do it yourself or were you just out of it enough for one of the boys to do it?

I believe I did it myself, my boys were asleep (i think) and my scissors were in my bed
