I woke up feeling so bad.

I have really bad monthly pains today. I couldn’t get to sleep until really early in the morning. I remember it being nearly 6 am when I last checked the time before sleeping. I had to get up to change the litter tray because Mimi hadn’t used the thing correctly and got her business all over the edge. I did the washing up from last night because I didn’t feel up to it at that point. Mister had peed on the kitchen floor so I had to clean that up. I don’t want to move around much today. I want to go for a walk but I need to rest. I know that I need to plan a few rest days due to getting fluid collecting in parts of my body. The size of my thighs last night nearly made me cry. I managed to get some fluid out by rubbing my legs and leaving them up in the air for a few minutes. There was some in my arms too so did the same with them. I can’t get it to fully go down unless I don’t walk or do other forms of exercise for a few days a week.

Author: Diary of a Painfully Shy Introvert

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).
