I Have Asperger's

The unique perspective of the world through the eyes of a girl with Asperger's Syndrome


Please let me know what you think of the site, and PLEASE feel free to ask me questions*. 

*While I welcome questions about what MY life is like living with Asperger's, I don't feel comfortable giving other people advice about their OWN situations, as I am not a licensed professional. So I ask that you please do not write to me asking for specific advice about your personal situation or a family situation. Thank you.

I'm am a 28 year old female with Aspergers, would also love to have someone to talk to. Lin MacMillan on Facebook (which I don't use much unless I see new inbox messages...Facebook still feels like being in public for me somehow), or email, or Skype.

Just came across your blog this morning; I love that there's finally a voice for female Asperger's! I myself am one as well, and the only literature I ever come across is male-orriented or written by a male...Aspergers simply isn't the same at all between the two genders.

I understand how truly frustrating it is to feel like you get nothing done some days; fighting who we are with the intent of being what we want to be, almost a sort of divided self. It's therapeutic for me just knowing there's others out there fighting the same fight, makes me feel less isolated.

Stay strong, every day is a new chance.

How would one go about getting help? I believe I have a little one who has Asperger's. I need direction cause I have hit just about every brick wall. Any advice is welcome. We are in NJ.

Have you heard about Grant Manier? He does amazing art and he has Asperger's Syndrome, but does amazing work in his Eco-Art, which is art he makes from ripped-up pieces of magazines, calendars, etc. and glued together in a picture. He sells the art as a business and goes to my school, which was made for kids and teens with ADHD, Asperger's SYndrome, autism, Tourette's Syndrome, etc. It's a small school, but there are two campuses, and I love it! I have Asperger's Syndrome myself, but I just wanted to let you know about Grant (geez, I love to type as much as I love to talk!). I also wrote a short "autobiography" on Wattpad called "The Owl Hawk: A True Story" and after I finished writing that a few months ago, I found your book on the iBookstore just yesterday and I'm glad I did.

just came across your blog whilst investigating our sensories - in particular "smell" (when I spoke to a farrier I had not seen or heard from in over 20 years - I could distinctly smell the waft of horses hooves being prepped to have a shoe put on as we chatted on the phone) like the memory of his voice, triggered this off. Your section on Taste.....yes, I too am like you, I quite often get to that lightheaded, feeling nauseaus - still unable to eat......when I do eat, I will think nothing of having exactly the same thing for days on end! Texture is important too - cant bare slimey, chewy, (as in gristle chewy) - i avoid meat altogether and have done since I was 10? before that age I would just leave it on my plate. (My doctor is presently trying to find someone to refer me to on the NH)

So, when I get really excited and flap my hands to calm down is that normal?

I have Aspergers. I just realized how much change in my schedule upsets me. I mean Subs have been fine before because most of them stuck to what we normally did. But today I had subs in 4 of my classes and I nearly wantd to leave because we weren't doing what we always did. Any advice to not get angry at this?

Hi Erin,

I have just finished to read your book and found so much in it that I didnĀ“t know yet.
I have talked about your book with my sister and friend, because I needed to share my new knowledge.
I really liked your book and can recommend it to all people who want to know what a life with AspergerĀ“s might be. You really help people to understand better. Thank you so much and all the best to you!
