I am posting here because I have a question about (what may be) an aspie-related behavior in someone I care about, and I was wondering if anyone here had any advice/insights/ or experiences. This person I'm friends with will not shower. Or, he says he does, but it smells like he doesn't, his teeth are grimy, et cetera. On the one hand, I respect that it is his choice, but it makes him difficult to be around, and other people are not understanding...and i can see why, the smell is untolerable at times. He gets very sensitive/agitated when the issue is brought up...and says he doesn't know why it's such an issue. Has anyone ever gone through the same thing?
Edit: this person has been diagnosed with asperger's, as well as depression.
