In this episode, I mention the great book that I have been listening to (and why I prefer to listen, not read.) The book is called The Like Switch and can be bought online in readable and audible formats here:
Thats the first part of the episode..... then I get into what I've considered the lifelong painful intersection of hormones (aka sex drive) and Aspergers.
The 2 have a profound opposing effect on each other - and from my perspective, Aspergers makes for a very very frustrating life. In fact, I believe the 4 meltdowns I've had - in which I've been in a state of undescribable, unforgettable mental pain for at least 5 minutes or more - are directly traceable to the inability to interact with other human beings in a way that might bring about physical intimacy. Jealousy and sadness after learning about others' successs in the area has always been painful to endure and long-recurring.
If you have experiences in this realm that you feel are powerful and worth mentioning on a future episode, anonymously of course, please don't hesitate to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thanks for listening!
