A friend of mine, who happens to be an aspergers, runs a blog called Invisible Autistic. On it she describes her experience of various events in her life, asks for advice and shows us all what a cool person she is.
Several of her posts lately have been about her whole experience of getting a root-canal and the many complications that arise due to autism. I am giving the you the links in the order in which they happened so you can get a look at how aspergers creates barriers in a situation that many people take for granted.
