Imagine

  • Imagine needing order in a disorderly world.
  • Imagine creating order, and being laughed at for doing so.
  • Imagine needing precision in an imprecise world.
  • Imagine being precise, and being told it is often unnecessary.
  • Imagine needing structure in an unstructured world.
  • Imagine creating structure, only for people to tear it apart.
  • Imagine needing words to have their literal meaning.
  • Imagine taking words literally, only for people to consider you stupid.

  • Imagine order is innate, and you have to work out when order is not required.
  • Imagine precision is innate, and you have to work out when precision is not required.
  • Imagine structure is innate, and you have to work out when structure is not required.
  • Imagine taking words literally is innate, and you have to work out when the meaning is not literal.

  • Imagine becoming anxious when you see the 'Random' button on your CD player.
  • Imagine becoming anxious because someone gives you £10 when they owe £9.60.
  • Imagine becoming anxious when you see fiction and non-fiction books mingled.
  • Imagine becoming anxious when you are told to wait 10 minutes and it is 11 minutes and counting.

If you can imagine this, then you can begin to imagine my world.
Welcome to my Asperger’s world.
