aspergers movie,c25k niece

aspergers is a condition that affects at least one of our
if you read about aspergers you will recognize some of
the characteristics strown throuhout our family tree
wont mention names but if you think hard you will recognize
who they are

there is a great variation in symptoms and severity
at one end of the spectrum is maybe michael dell from dell

have a lot of patients with aspergers
most are extremely intelligent just missing some
social skills
many of their parents especially fathers have symptoms
of aspergers and most work in the computer industry
have a lot of computer companies in this area-dell ibm
amd hp etc

the aspergers movie is "the social network"
it is about the founder of facebook  mark zuckerberg
watch this movie and will see what the top spectrum of
asperger is like
many of you receive and access this blog from facebook
you follow and communicate with your friends and families
via facebook
wished my sisterinlaw my brothers wife birthday via facebook
yesterday(happy birthday again)
this abillity to do all this was started and conceived by someone
with aspergers

learn and read about aspergers
makes it easier to understand someone with it and
makes it easier to accept them and understand
what their families
have gone through and are going through

my c25k niece is on day 2 week 5 of her couch to 5k prep
she has less than  2 weeks to go till the c25k race
keep your pace
dont let the slow walkers pass you but dont keep up with the
fast runners
when you finish your first one you will feel so good about
warning it can be addictive
good luck
