22 Things a Woman With Asperger's Syndrome Wants Her Partner to Know

22 Things a Woman With Asperger's Syndrome Wants Her Partner to Know 2014-03-04

I read this book right after I read Aspergirls by the same author and liked it a lot. It was a quick read and felt just a tad light on information, but I think it was just because Aspergirls had so much information that it felt that way in comparison. It was very clear and it was definitely stuff I wanted my husband to know, but didn’t know how to say. I also liked it because it didn’t put all the responsibility on the NT partner to change their ways. I learned a lot about what I could do to help things too.

I gave it to my husband to read and he enjoyed it. He felt validated for the observations he had already made about me and found some new insights about why I do the things I do. He says that he realizes now that he was handling some things badly and will change how he deals with them now that he knows why it wasn’t working. I think it will definitely help our relationship become even better and I am very glad I found it.
I thought this was really helpful. My relationship is at an impasse and i just don't understand much of his thinking or behavior. This book did help me to understand more, in very clear cut terms.
