Day 4 - Asperger Syndrome

Day four, and I have written in to the Loire valley. One more day, till a day of the bike. Each day brings a spectrum of feelings, some good some bad. Today was a good one, and hopefully tomorrow will be a good one before a rest day.

Autism is a spectrum condition. All people who are autistic share certain difficulties but being autistic will affect them in different ways. Asperger syndrome is a particular kind of autism. People with the syndrome see, hear and feel the world differently to other people. Some people with Asperger find the world overwhelming and this can cause them anxiety. They might feel overloaded with the sights, smells and sounds going on around them. People with Asperger syndrome are generally as clever or more clever than most of us.

Maybe I should have asked someone who is Asperger to design this route! More rest days and less days on the bike would have been kinder to a specific bit of my body right now. I will let you decide which!
