I've got a question about Asperger's as well. I've never had occasion to be around an Aspie, so I don't know. Can they tell when they are about to "cycle" through a bad spell? (Or is there even anything cyclical or pattern-like to their outbursts? The one person I've noted seemed quite cyclical to me.)
I am asking this because I *know* when I'm PMSing that I'm being completely unreasonable, weepy, rage-y and, basically, not making any damned sense at all. I have learned the hard way when it's that time of the month to self-isolate and to stay away from love interests and message boards. Of course, I realize that PMS is *nothing* like what Asperger's must surely be like, but it's the closest thing I can personally relate to.
Is there able to be any level of self-control or self-awareness to avert a trainwreck of one's own making?
