Autism Awareness Month Post Thirteen: What Triggers My Sensitivity?

An Aspergian's Chemical Romance


Part of my aspergian life is a heightened sensitivity to the world around me. Sounds, tastes, feelings, colors…you name it, I’m either positively or negatively affected by them. As I live in the city, I find it hard most of the time to be a perfect peace with my inner nature. I like quiet, stillness…I don’t mind motion, but it’s the kind of motion. Certainly not the bustling, back and forth kind you find in a downtown complex. That’s why I struggle going out, because it’s a sensory overload.

I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
