As I awoke from a dream, the words “Asperger’s Syndrome” flashed before me. The night before, I was speaking to a friend of mine (a healer / Reiki master friend of mine) about the recent difficulties that I have been having in raising my son.
The words in the dream appeared to be the answer to my unasked question.
Even without knowing much about Asperger’s Syndrome, the dream brought me comfort because it made me feel that maybe I wasn’t going crazy.
The truth is that even before Moses was born, I had suspicions that he would be autistic. But when his language skills developed normally, I put that thought to rest.
Now that I’ve started to read about Asperger’s Syndrome (AS), I’ve learned that most individuals with AS are highly verbal and highly intelligent (both of which are true for Moses).
He doesn’t show all of the characteristics of AS, so it’s not clear to me, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he was diagnosed with a mild form of it.
I will let you know more as it is revealed to us.
