    I wanted to share an article I wrote on my mental health blog about my experience having a relationship with someone on the autistic spectrum. I couldn't have gotten to where I am without everyone's support on this forum.

    It's great Sissel, I'm so glad you wrote it ≧◉◡◉≦

    Having experienced similar difficulties in my aspie to aspie marriage, it's edifying to read and understand the difficulties that we have both worked at and through.

    Thank you, Mia! Usually it takes me a while to get an article on “paper” but this one just flowed effortlessly. Could have said so much more. It has been a journey!

    Thanks so much for your encouragement. I hope it helps at least one person who has struggled with these issues.
