Grief and Psychology

Completely random thought: I'm reading a chapter on grief processing, and it went on about identifying real grief, and then into grief handling, it mentioned wrapping up in blankets for the sensation of being cuddled. My mind made the association, "What if Asperger's Syndrome is really hypersensitivity to grief? Lose a status quo, and bang, need comfort. Ordering entire life around routines and predictability (impossible, nothing is permanent) in order to avoid situations where loss can occur?"
