I really tried hard. I can’t do a whole day on two hours sleep!

Technically I’m getting done more than normal because I did a few bits when I got up. I had some food. I let my hair dry probably and put it in a low bun to go for a nap. I think the cats are joining me as they’ve just jumped on the bed. Sleeping is literally an activity to them. I couldn’t do a full day on two hours sleep. I would have stayed in bed if my wet hair hadn’t made me uncomfortable. I couldn’t get back to sleep.

I was wondering earlier about how we are socially trained. We always get taught to say things like it’s a pleasure to meet you etc when greeting people. I don’t know about anyone else but I rarely ever mean that. That is nothing personal against the person I am meeting but more the fact that most days I don’t want to ‘do’ people. I probably don’t want to even be at the event, gathering or whatever. Why are we taught to be fake? It’s not nice. It’s actually fake. We shouldn’t be pretending to enjoy meeting or spending time with others if we actually don’t.

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).
