I have not just Asperger’s Syndrome to deal with but I have a fatty liver too. It definitely was not due to alcoholism. It was due to consumption of a pharmaceutical drug made by Novartis called Tegretol 200. All pharmaceutical drugs on the market can have its benefits but has side effects as well. I did give up alcohol due to taking a combination of pharmaceutical drugs daily. I was not an addict of alcohol. I can’t have too much burgers with fries. I can’t consume too much ice cream. I can’t consume too many of these fizzy drinks. I can’t consume too much chocolate. I can’t consume too many cakes. Their the foods I most love eating. I can consume some in moderation. My General Practioner has asked me to lose weight. Not easy with consumption of pharmaceutical drugs. I do have a gym membership. I do go regularly as I can. I do regularly walk as much as possible. The main thing is that I am aware that I have Asperger’s & the fatty liver. It must seem bad news. It can be good news in the long run having the awareness in the first place.

It took 43 years to even know

It took 43 years to find that I had Aspergers. A former doctor said that I had it. It started to make sense but there were still many problems in my life at that time. I sure hated this blasted social world. Going from one service to another. The main problem was copping it from the neurotypicals in this world. It was very painful to go there. I have being there to experience it first hand. I have worked as a clerk, accounts payable clerk, data entry clerk, despatch clerk & promotions officer. That’s my work history as brief as I can describe it. Achieve a lot without even knowing that I had Aspergers. I have had other diagnoses for more than a decade.It was being a schizo at first then it was an anxiety disorder leading to Aspergers. Thank god for that. I am alive to have the right label. I know the pitfalls too well & the advantages are present too. I am more than aware of Aspergers & self aware too. There have being many times that I didn’t even know who I was. Life does go on for me. I am in mid life now & still have a lot to experience in the future. I call my life at present a work in progress.
