"Asperger Moments"

A quote worth memorizing:

"Even at the most painful moments, try to detach and see the 'Asperger Moment' for what it is -- a statement of fact, not emotion."

from the 2009 book Life with a Partner or Spouse with Asperger Syndrome: Going over the Edge? Practical Steps to Saving You and Your Relationship by Kathy J. Marshack, Ph.D.

  1. All perfectly true but since aspies ARE capable of empathy, it's better that you try to help us to help you.

    Don't put yourself out to the point where you begin to hate your relationship. Teach your aspie.

    Relationships need to be mutual.
