Sample text

As explained elsewhere in the book, Chris seems to find it difficult to recognise ICD-10 Criteria for Asperger Syndrome 45 distress and seems unclear on how to offer help or support. • Lack of shared enjoyment in terms of vicarious pleasure in other people’s happiness and/or a spontaneous seeking to share their own enjoyment through joint involvement with others. Chris: Not really true of me. Gisela: My initial thought was that I disagreed with Chris, but I do think that he derives some pleasure from my happiness, though he does not always express it.

It is far more comfortable to think that a family member is ‘different’ than that they have a disability. I have been fortunate. Not only did Chris accept and, initially, welcome the diagnosis, but also we had the full support of his parents, who at last had some explanation for why, despite their best efforts, Chris seemed to be so unsociable and uncommunicative. It explained all the fiddling he had done as a child and his near-death experiences, including setting fire to the back garden and trying to drop a lighted match into a car fuel tank, to see what happened.

The intervening period was difficult. For me, whatever the outcome, the future did not look bright in terms of a successful and happy marriage. Either Chris had Asperger Syndrome, in which case there would never be that intuitive understanding that one hopes for in marriage, or he was bad tempered and uncaring. I was unable to believe the latter as I had always felt that Chris did care, yet time and time again he did things that suggested the opposite, that he went out of his way to disturb and unnerve people.
