Little bits done :)

I managed to get some things done around here. I’m at least a little closer to feeling less disorganised. The cat peed on my bed covers again so I had to wash the duvet and cover. I am so fed up of him doing that. He’s going back to the vets again because he was never peeing on my bed previously. It can’t just be behavioural unless he’s really upset with how things are around his living area at the moment. I don’t know what to do. I used that felaway plug in for a while which did seem to stop the behaviour but it’s extremely expensive to use long term. I also am not keen on the smell myself. I’m sensitive to smells and noises due to my autism so it’s difficult to find a balance. I can smell things with a blocked nose. I can hear the smallest of sounds like electric currents from plugs. I’m sure that it’s just as annoying for the cats as they are the same. I sympathise but we can’t eliminate everything that causes us stress. I wish that we could because life would be a lot easier.

I’m 99% sure that my cats pick up my anxiety. I’m anxious to some degree 24/7. Mister spends longer inside than Mimi as he only wants to go out at night. Mimi strolls outside during the daylight hours for a chill. He can’t keep peeing on my stuff as I end up continually repeating tasks such as washing things which leads to me getting nothing else done. I know he’s stressed with the place. I am too. I am in the process of sorting everything depending on whether lockdown is ordered again in the next few weeks. That is something beyond my control and we will just have to live in this state until lockdown has ended and normal life resumes. He can’t always get what he wants all the time. I don’t want to live in this state right now. I have no choice. I feel like the felines are taking over my flat sometimes. It doesn’t feel like my home. I love them both but they’re hard work. They constantly work together to get food etc from me. Mimi has just had food and already nagging me. They are wormed regularly so shouldn’t be that hungry. She has food down but just wants the other wet food. If she was truly still that hungry she would eat the dry food in her bowl. They have water down so she doesn’t need to nag me. I have to put the covers back on the duvet due to misters antics.

A blog written by a female diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome but suspected PDA in more recent years. Musings of a Trainee Battleaxe was created to not only create awareness of the PDA part of the spectrum; but also to educate the public hopefully creating understanding in order to stop future generations being let down and labelled negatively. Disclaimer: There may be parts of this blog which viewers may find upsetting as it contains accounts of real life events which have been quite traumatic. However, it is all to help create a sense of understanding and combat the fear surrounding all aspects of mental illness and Pathological Avoidance Syndrome (a very little understood part of the autistic spectrum).

  1. Sometimes hormones and stress alter my perception of smells and stuff. I hate it when I get that thing where everything smells acrid; that seems to be a particular stress speciality, as if stress wasn’t bad enough by itself.

    Also noises. It’s the high-pitched ones that really do me in. I have a cabinet full of computer equipment behind me including a UPS and a whole bunch of “wall warts” to power various ancillary bits. The very high pitched squealing is not pleasant. Kinda like tinnitus but actually there. Only a chorus of M*msnetters could whine more unpleasantly.

    As for cats and weeing, it’s often about them trying to tell you something. Unfortunately neither humans nor hamsters speak cat.
