Topic: Are you going through an Identity Crisis?

Thursday April 25, 2019, 2:00-3:00 PM PDT

VIDEO CONFERENCE: Are you going through an Identity Crisis? Have you noticed that there was a moment of relief and even a bit of excitement when you first discovered that your spouse has ASD. You thought to yourself, “Now there is a direction we can go in.” There seemed to be a little light at the end of the interminable tunnel you were trapped in. You threw yourself into researching the subject, locating a therapist, suggesting options for your spouse . . .which inexplicably ground to a halt. It’s not that your efforts were a waste of time. It’s that something else was coming to the surface that needed attending to. That something else is You! Haven’t you started questioning who you are. . . or were? Don’t you wonder where your life would be without the trauma of ASD/NT life? Can you even recognize the person you have become? This is the essence of an Identity Crisis. Don’t fear the crisis. This is an opportunity to take your life back, to re-establish your true identity, and to build a new and stronger version of yourself. Let’s meet with others on this journey of reclaiming our lives from the ravages of ASD/NT confusion.

Topic: VIDEO CONFERENCE: Why “Aspies” Don’t Get Chit Chat

Thursday May 30, 2019, 7:30-8:30 PM PDT

“I don’t get what she’s talking about. I-t’s like confetti swirling all around. I just wait for it to drift to the ground,” said an Aspie husband.

“Neuro-Typicals need all of these extraneous words to explain things. I’ve practiced using these words so that they feel better. It’s like they need all of these curly-Qs splashed all over the page,” said an Aspie woman.

In spite of the neuroscience behind this, it’s still a puzzle to us why they don’t listen. We explain and explain and explain, but all they recognize is the confetti and the curly-Qs. Only when we speak their language is there a modicum of interpersonal interaction.

Notice I said, “modicum.” It still feels empty when we talk with our Aspies because their lack of empathy (EmD-0) makes us feel disconnected, even invisible to them.

This call is to learn more about this phenomenon and how to work around it. We are not irrelevant and neither is our verbal expressiveness.

Topic: Is It Codependence or Self Preservation ?

Thursday May 16, 2019, 2:30-4:00 PM PDT

Do feelings of guilt surface when you consider leaving your relationship? And on the other hand do you feel just as guilty for staying? This is the dilemma of our lives with Aspies. It’s tough to explain this conundrum to our friends and family and even our psychologist. Why is that? I’d like to banish your guilt once and for all. Why should you feel guilty for having an impossible choice to make? It’s not simple and no one understands that except members of this group. Let’s gather together on this call to learn more about being caught in what psychologists call a “Lose-Lose” situation. Because we are a group of thoughtful, caring, committed people, we search for “Win-Win” solutions, but what do you do when the options are slim?

VIDEO CONFERENCE: From Denial to Resilience

VIDEO CONFERENCE: From Denial to Resilience.
The first step toward your healing is to break through your denial, not your Aspie’s. When you join this group, you probably already know that there are cracks in your denial system. It’s inevitable that your good common sense and strong heart will eventually lead you to self compassion.

That’s what this call is about. Not just seeing the truth about your ASD/NT relationship, but standing in your Truth. Through self compassion it is easier to see the truth, stand in your Truth — and build resilience to take back your life.

It’s not a normal life you are taking back though is it? You are forever changed by life with an adult on the Autism Spectrum. Let’s meet to discuss how to take back our lives, stand in our own Truth, and become Resilient.
