Better Together

What’s it like to live in a time warp, needing more time than other people to process what’s being said, what it might mean, and therefore how you should feel in response? Sarah Nannery knows the score, given her struggles with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Meanwhile, as a “neurotypical brain” person, her husband, Larry Nannery, adds his perspective about helping Sarah navigate situations ranging from office politics to social outings. Highlights of this episode include what internalization means to Sarah as she copes with feeling “bottled up inside,” and how she makes a “conversational sandwich” to handle the small talk that others can handle so readily.
