Need social work: Any patient with a trach should have been given explicit home care instructions. Usually a social worker is involved and verifies that the necessary supplies are at the home. You should not be looking for answers here. Talk to the physician that inserted the trach.

Insight: To my knowledge, no medication, and especially no herbal / "pop" remedy will touch Asperger's. The key is to learn about other people, how to read them, how to relate to them, how to capitalize on your intellectual gifts and power to focus, how to find a sport that's right for you (strength / endurance, not ream or coordination) and how to be happy in a world where there are no quick fixes.

Dr. Bernard Seif
Clinical Psychology 40 years experience
A therapist who: Specializes in aspergers is a good way to go. He/she will help you develop social skills that may not come as easily to you as to some. Embrace who you are, aspergers and all. We all have challenges of one sort or another, yours may be a bit more visible at times. Peace and good health.
