dealing with anger

Dealing with anger. It’s not something I used to do very well.

I most often denied I was even angry.

Then when my anger came out: watch out! Unfortunately, those around me would pay the price for my verbal rants and rage.

In today’s episode, I share accounts of Aspergians and Autistics who experience anger in their lives.

I learned a lot from this young Aspergian lady in this video – I hope you will too.
