Re: aspergers syndrome
Yeah, unfortunately, the fits of aggression probably won't go away. I still hit my mother once in awhile when there's an abrupt change in routine or she's doing something that aggravates my sensory issues (like combing my hair really roughly). It's not something I'm proud of, but I try my best to control it. Most of my aggression is verbal aggression. I talk back more and get nastier when there's change/interruption or sensory issues. I also tend to whine more when I'm going through sensory issues. I throw a lot of fits by myself. Just two-and-a-half weeks ago I was frustrated over a homework assignment. I went to take my headphones out of my CD player, so I could listen to music on my computer, and the CD player fell on the floor. That set me off for some reason. I threw the headphones across the room and broke them. My tantrums have been greatly lessened now that I'm on the mood stabilizer Lamictal, but Asperger's is for life, so they will always be there in some way, shape, and form.
