Gavin on the other hand was always thinking and found it difficult to tolerate people who behaved in a careless manner. On his ‘white board’ it said, ‘Always buy a big bottle for everybody and share’ (that includes in the cinemas even if you look like a fool). I had no idea that he had a ‘white board’ and was devastated that we had to argue about the price of a drink while we were on our honeymoon. Gavin didn’t care. In his opinion I had acted stupidly and he needed to make sure that I knew it.
We’d like our partner to show compassion when we’re sick I still remember the first time I was sick in my married life. Over dinner I told Gavin that I didn’t feel well. I didn’t expect him to make a big deal about it, but his reaction certainly came as a surprise. ’ I didn’t know that he had AS and was surprised that his facial expression didn’t change and he showed no sign of empathy. He couldn’t see why I would want to stay up and be miserable. Having AS meant that Gavin wasn’t able to put himself into somebody else’s shoes.
You’d realize that in pushing him to accelerate or, even worse, carry you, he might suffer an asthma attack. Surely you wouldn’t want that.

Don’t concern yourself with the giggles of the other couples. You will be the one laughing once you reach the hut and start to play Trivial Pursuit. Thanks to AS your partner might know more answers and help you win the game, or he’ll cook a great meal for everybody.
