I’m currently finally having a break in the warm. The boiler is working for now but the landlord has decided to replace it due to how much issues are going to cost him. I’m just happy I have heat and hot water now. The last few days have been hard. I had to boil the… Read More Overwhemled and in need of a break.
I am aware that this may sound insulting but I was quite offended by a comment made to me earlier. Some times people forget that we have our own private life. An autism parent basically accused me of not advocating enough for the autism community. On their first status they basically accused the actuallyautistic adults… Read More What have I been doing the past 13 years?
The topic tonight is executive dysfunction. This is a common problem for those of us on the spectrum. I find it quite an annoying issue. I don’t get anything done properly when I’m dysfunctioning. Tasks like cleaning are one of the hardest for me to do when I’m in this mode. Planning and organising these… Read More What is Executive Dysfunction? And how does it impact the life of those with an Autism Spectrum Condition?
I had to go home earlier from my relatives than I planned today. This was due to not really being in a great frame of mind because of today being Mother’s Day. I just feel emotionally drained. I didn’t want to wake up today. Even when I was awake I wanted to just go back… Read More Mother’s Day was emotionally crippling.
I wear pinky-red tinged glasses to control sensory overload from lights etc. Since I’ve started wearing them I have had mixed reactions. I don’t think wearing them in court the day that I got sentenced to Prison was a wise decision. The magistrates looked at me worse than they have previously done when I wasn’t… Read More Sensory ‘Sensitivity’ Glasses
I have had a busy week. I got a lot of things done today. The windows are now clean (not been done in six months, barely could see through them). There is more light in here now. I went for a short walk after getting up late. I ate a whole Easter Egg after I… Read More Productive week finally finished.
Many of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted for a few days. I have been busy. I normally post daily but I just haven’t had the time. I’ve been online but not really enough to post a blog entry. I’m honestly exhausted but I am starting to get some energy back. I managed… Read More I have recovered but not completely.
I was late for my appointment by half an hour today. That isn’t something I normally do. I literally didn’t remember that I had an appointment until I got a text reminding me. I am never normally that bad at remembering things. I was just exhausted at the end of last week so that didn’t… Read More Late and disorganised! Trying to solve the Cat’s mystery illness.
I get absolutely fed up of being made to feel ‘below others’ because of being different (on the spectrum). I have the same abilities/potential as other people that aren’t on the spectrum. I don’t like being made to feel that I’m not good enough. I’m just never taken seriously. I only get taken seriously when… Read More Some other things that bug me when it comes to others. Autistic vs. Neurotypical society.
I have only popped on tonight because this week has been a little bit mad and I’m heading for an earlier night (not much though). I really feel that we are living in complete chaos and conflict at this moment in time. Brexit is fuelling a vast amount of hate in the UK between different… Read More Autism ‘Industry’ becoming a scary reality, alongside the impact of how Autistic people and those with mental health issues are treated.
