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.

TELECONFERENCE: Why do I feel so disoriented?
There’s a lot packed into this question. Dealing day in and day out with the stresses of living with an Aspie, and/or raising children on the Spectrum (and other variations on this theme) can leave us not just emotionally drained, but can also affect our mental health.

Do you feel confused? Do you forget things more easily than you used to? Do others think you are always rattled? Are you irritable or prone to cry easily? Are you gaining weight or losing it when you really shouldn’t? Can’t sleep? Prone to accidents? Unexplained aches and pains?

Think about it. Your brain is affected physiologically by chronic stress, no differently than your digestive system, or your heart, or other important body systems. This chronic stress leads to chemical imbalances in the brain, among others disorders. In turn this leads to that feeling of disorientation.

Let’s crack open this tough subject and learn ways to take back your life and get your brain back on line.

Topic: Ghosted by “Asperger Syndrome”

Thursday April 11, 2019, 4:00-5:00 PM PDT

VIDEO CONFERENCE; Ghosted by Asperger Syndrome. (For more advanced or experienced members). Have you heard of the term “Ghosting,” or “Ghosted”? It’s new in the vernacular and means that someone has cut you off without a trace, as if you never existed before. There is no response to your phone calls, texts, or emails. You may even be cut off from contact through social media. It can also mean that you have done the Ghosting. I am intrigued by this concept since psychologists refer to Ghosting as a “cruel form of emotional abuse.” It is remarkably similar to how we can feel with our ASD loved ones. Cut off, invisible, no communication, uncared for. It’s also true that our Aspie’s feel Ghosted because they live a life with so little understanding of their condition. Even though we are there to love them and carry them through difficult social situations, they can still feel alone too. And then Ghost us without fully understanding who they are hurting. Let’s take this opportunity to look at the painful topic. Can we find methods to break through this destructive pattern?
