Hi Group.
I'm recently self-diagnosed,and I've been having some difficulty incorporating Aspergers into my mindset.
I've always thought of myself as mainstream, but a bit different.
When my wife brought up the possibility that I had it, my reaction was as would be expected, but I went along and did the research, took the online questionnaires, and ultimately came up with the same conclusion.

Despite following the patterns that we all fall prey to, I am struggling with my lack of ability to consistently be engaged with my wife and putting her needs for comfort, intimacy, and empathy to the front of my mind.

Are there any first hand success stories you may have which would give us greater hope? We love each other enough to want a lasting relationship, but are driving each other crazy with our struggles.

Common topics of argument include, but not limited to:
Lack of emotional engagement
Mechanical physical contact
Conflict avoidance with third parties, perceived as lack of support
Repeating habits, despite promises to take corrective steps

Thanks in advance
