  1. Hello!

    I am going through my old information of blogs who at one time linked to the Woman With Asperger’s blog. You’ve linked to me in your blogroll (my apologies for commenting here — I couldn’t find an email address). Unfortunately, I lost my old URL, womanwithaspergers.com. However, the Woman With Asperger’s blog can be found at: http://womanwithaspergers.wordpress.com. Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience and adjust your links accordingly.

    Thank you very much,

  3. Hi Jenwytch,

    Just stumbled on your blog and was so interested to read the article on Aspergers and Empathy.
    I have three sons, one diagnosed with ASD and the other two with a lot of traits. I was amazed to find the article as two days ago I was discussing with a colleague that I think I am on the spectrum but I tend to over empathise, taking on other’s emotions and feelings to my own detriment. So it was great to read that sensitivities are also evident in the way we process empathy.

    As a pagan, celebrating Imbolc, (this was actually why I was reading your blog) I was astounded by your title, as it felt like it was coming from myself, Aussie, Pagan, Aspie, Housewife. As a solitary practitioner it felt like making a connection on Brigid’s sacred day, so thank you Jenwytch for all you do!
