Hi. Long time without posting. I started classes again. After 5 years being unable to stay in a class with people of my age, I tried again. And the experience is being incredible so far. I've met incredible people, we support each other constantly. We even did a small party on Saturday and it...

Smoking first thing isn't good. Starting the day in a haze. A smoke in the morning is more intense and lasts longer. I’d claim it’s enjoyable, but often it isn’t. Whilst it lasts longer than a smoke during the daytime, it’s not a good way to begin the day, and it’s been this way for months now...

My son excels at imaginative play, of all things. (He hasn't been officially diagnosed, but I suspect he is neurotypical.) I love him dearly, but he is mentally exhausting. His sort of play is utter chaos and requires getting ALL HIS TOYS spread ALL OVER THE HOUSE. I don't mean a pretty magazine...
I'm not even going to attempt to write a story about what happened to me since my last update. I mean, my last post was Pre-COVID. Ah, to be young again... Anyway, here's a summary of the last three years: - hypomania - relapse - lost job - started writing - recovery - new job - stopped...
I would hope that anyone into Science Fiction knows of the works of William Gibson. His novels are always based on the relative states of politics, technology, and society, in the time they are written. It takes the socio-economic and political tenor of the times and projects forward from it...

I need a place to process and it might as well be here. My mother died about a week ago. She was 78, tired of being alive and basically asked us to stop all diagnostics and treatments. It's fine. My daily life behavior is concerning to me though. I can't really grieve normally. I can't grieve...

Odd language use set me off down the rabbit hole today. Meg messaged me this afternoon saying: "I've gone in to cambridge for the afternoon to try and make a friend tinder not-date. Is good to meet a new person :)" One thing I'm still adjusting to is knowing she's in Haddenham but not...

Restful beginning to the week. Walks in Aldreth and into the nearby woods. It's about a 30 minute loop, and I spent some time in the woods. I did said walk Mon, Tue and Wed after my first day at my new job. In terms of workload it'll be easier than all but my first job. The location is a big...

James stood in the driveway wishing he were a plumber once again. He had been a darn good plumber after all; he had single-handedly run the waterworks of an entire Navy base and never had even a complaint about his work. With his feet glued to the driveway, he thought longingly of the days spent...

Alice had celebrated her 100th birthday yesterday, most likely a Monday. She didn’t really keep track of the days so much anymore. It’s not that she had trouble remembering, it’s just that it simply didn’t matter as each day was more or less the same. The prescribed days of the week did not...

I saw someone that went to the same college as me. Same class. It made me remember how horrible those days were. I had no one and i was constantly scared not knowing how to act. How to make friends how to pretend. I was so depressed and emotionally unstable. Sometimes it feels like i never...

Do you ever notice random smells and end up thinking about them for what seems like way longer than you should? Maybe this is just a me thing, but it happens a lot. I'm not sure if my sense of smell is more sensitive than everyone around me, or if I just pay more attention to smells. Anyways...

Reaching the end of this bug that I had. All that lingers is a tickly and slightly chesty cough. The whole thing has lasted about 8 days now. Slept a lot last week, clearly it was needed. Hadn't really done a great deal. Met a friend last Thursday. First proper in real life meeting. She's the...

Hubby says a big reason he is acting like this is a sense of futility because I say "do x to fix it" and from his perspective he does x and it doesn't help. "Help" = it ends the conflict entirely. I don't know if the issue is on his end or mine. Some theories: 1. He has a much longer...

Self care is telling my son "I have to save my ears for the fair. I won't be able to answer you right now because I am saving my brain so I can help you at the fair since it will be very loud." And doing it without guilt. I love my kid enough to love my brain enough to titrate my sensory...

She hears the rest of the world saying that they are the normal ones. Somehow she doesn't believe it. She wonders if she ever will. Maybe others are the ones who are strange. How can they understand social norms, metaphors, similes... and politics????? The rest of the world is a mystery to her...

Historically I don't do journaling etc very consistently. We will see. I envision this to be a space where I can talk about cool stuff. And hopefully a place to bring my intense feeling self. Because I am married to an autist that has more classic symptoms he is overwhelmed by my emotional...

I only ever wanted to feel safe but never did not even as a child. I knew i was different and dirty and always made to feel like that. I am not surprised that i imagined my parents were not my real parents and that my real parents have died in a fire. I never felt close to neither of them and...
