    Yes! My faith certainly helps me with my struggles. I am able to find peace in the daily storms of life. Praying and listening to worship music helps me to break out of any obsessive thinking (or interest). It also helps greatly with my anxiety.

    No, I am not fighting to "be healed" of ASD. I love how my brain works. I do, however, ask for strength in real time for the many areas I have deficits in. As I see it, people with ASD are one of God's many treasures in the world. We have a lot to offer!

    I wear ear plugs to big service and in the lobby. I can not be apart of small groups that have more than 8 people. I am a part of various ministries and the leadership team with my husband (my part is small and measured to what I can handle).

    I cannot do what many NT people in my church can, but they know of my condition and are very friendly and helpful, always making me feel apart of rather than apart from. I do not have friends, but my church family is a safe place for me to (attempt to) socialize and connect with others.

    There are times when I think we really should fight this condition and treat it like diabetes, and times when I dread the possibility of becoming more like the complacent and distracted majority. As for God, I have to wonder why a God - any God - would think it a good idea to place us among people who are almost as alien to us, from a mental perspective, as it is possible to be. I fail to comprehend the reason(s) for this, or what possible benefit it could bring to anyone. For me personally, being this way has made it much, much more difficult to relate to an idea (i.e. God) that is, ultimately, unknowable, incredibly abstract, and requires a "leap of faith" to accept. My mind just doesn't work that way and, as I understand it, the minds of the majority of 'Aspies' don't either.

    Well, that's good news, but how does it work?
