How am I doing? Great. :D

I thought I might as well make a brief post to update you all on what I've been up to.

First of all, things have been busy, busy, busy. I'm going back and forth between homework, making paper flowers (to hopefully sell soon), and working on the Asperger's documentary project (I will post about it at some point).

As for me, I've been doing GREAT!! I feel as if the fatigue I usually suffer from due to my AS is practically non-existent. I can work long hours at the computer and be productive all day. This is wonderful because most of my work is on the computer. However, in spite of my sudden feeling of incredible capability, I still have Asperger's, so I've still got my sensory issues and other symptoms. Only difference now is that I can recover from them more quickly. I just feel like I can endure so much more now, which is absolutely wonderful...

I sometimes find myself thinking, "Do I still have Asperger's?" and when I really think about it, the answer is yes. I've just learned to adapt so well that I've overcome many of my difficulties. However, AS is still AS, so there will be features of it I'll always have. But it's quite worth it because they make me who I am. Funny thing is, I almost want some of those difficulties back to keep me in check, because they've strengthened me so much; and if I don't struggle anymore, how will I continue to grow?
