"I sent the link on to my friend. It was very helpful to me to help understand her son. I highly recommended it to her because her son can't communicate the feelings that Sharon Rose did. It helped me to understand why he may be responding in certain ways. Things that would never bother me are overwhelming to those who are very sensitive to noise, activity, lights, etc. A big thank you to Sharon Rose!!" L. H.

“It's really interesting to read about all this. I had never heard of Asperger's before. I've definitely met people with these traits, but didn't know what it meant. I never would have known you had it though! . . . From what I can tell, you've done well at becoming a good ‘socializer.’ ” L. C. C.

“Well spoken, Sharon Rose. I can identify with all of the above. It has been years since I overcame these symptoms, so it sometimes seems like I don't have them. But I well remember going through all of those thought processes. . . . Socialization is still a carefully calculated thing for me. Thank you for doing this blog. It is great!” L. C.

“Very insightful. I have a few Aspie friends, as well as siblings. This was really good to read.” B. B.

Sharon Rose, this is a wonderful testimony. Thanks for sharing your life and your heart. It is important for all of us to remember how thankful we are for second chances and that sometimes what we think a person is thinking is not that at all. May God bless you as you continue to be a light shining into the dark world of misunderstandings that easily happen among friends who don't understand our weaknesses hidden within. Beautiful!!! Love you!" S. C.

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. . . . [Sharon Rose] should write a book!!” H. W.
