I am struggling to function at the moment.

I fell asleep for a few hours earlier. I then woke up and now sleep isn’t happening again. I have a headache which I managed to get rid of a bit by taking pain relief. The mattress on my bed gets hard after a few hours due to the springs coming through and the fabric slowly sinking. I have turned it several times. The springs just rise again in a few days. The bed place won’t give me a refund because the bed was purchased more than a year ago. They said that if I chose a new one I can have a discount but that probably won’t be much off a new one. I can’t do chargeback on debit card because its been over a certain amount of days. The hardness caused by the spring malfunction hurts my back and ribs when I do manage to sleep on it. I feel restless due to trying to come off antidepressants. The brain zaps are getting slightly less frequent. I think my hormones are causing my headache and allergies to kick off badly. I have a sore throat from allergies filling my sinuses. I took an antihistamine but they only do so much. I need to get rid of the dust build up in my flat because that probably isn’t helping.

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. I sleep on an air Mattress, which is relatively quiet despite the constant airflow! Might be worth considering if your Health Authority can arrange it for you?
