Friday was productive at work, but how I left took some time to process. Initially it was shock. I rang Meg, we chatted briefly, but she couldn't hear me too well, so we decided to chat about it when we met later that evening. I also rang Guy and he said I'd scared them off with how I'd written...

Quiet evening with Meg planned. Nice food, snacks, back rub, chill at mine. Film and an early night. Got invited to a dinner with Meg, her mum and her step dad as he's got a new job. Change of plan. I go with it. A change of pace mind. Going from a quiet night at mine to recharge and then faced...

Threw up last night - whoops. Too much good food and I knew I should've stopped eating, but I kept going, multiple times. It's fine though - wasn't too traumatic. Normally I get some nausea and just force myself to go to sleep. But upon going to bed it was clear within moments that I'd have to...

Woke up just before 8am. My internal clock has woken me up around this time for months, even after late nights which I've had the past few nights. Been very proactive on my FB art page the past few months. IG is slowly picking up pace too, but I've been so used to FB and put off by IG that...

Walked 7.7 miles last night. My head was swimming. Gets sore walking for a few hours. My old hip injury from a car accident can act up. But I got it done, and in the morning I woke up with a real thirst, then back to bed. Messaged Meg on WhatsApp this morning and we had a back and forth...

Neck ache is real bad of late. Going to the park in the next village to draw and I notice it escalating. Odd mix of feeling relaxed by drawing, being outside and having space. But then having to massage my neck and shoulders with my off hand to try and calm down the pains. They're severe today...

Monday. This Friday I'm driving up to Sheffield to see Meg. By that time it will have been 10 nights spent apart. She asked me yesterday if I'd been writing recently. I hadn't, but upon her asking I felt somewhat compelled and obliged to. Not that there was a hint or tone in her asking - it's...

Woke up with a sense of despair. Needless to say it was bloody horrible, and I couldn't pin it to a thought - it just was. Thankfully it dissipated within a minute or 2. I pondered the dream I had prior to waking up, but it didn't feel like a trigger in terms of narrative or how it made me feel...

Got to bed and knew that I was going to sleep well. So tired, so comfy - it felt wunderbah. After a minute or 2 my phone vibrated and I saw that Meg had reacted to one of my messages with a <3 We messaged one another before I went to bed. Sounded like a long day on the road to get to Cumbria. I...

Today has been nice, and certainly productive. I think starting the day with a blog might've got me into my own headspace a little too soon with the deeper thoughts and introspection etc. Normally I enjoy writing as a release to recall the day, and get out emotions and expressions. The morning...

A gaming friend of mine messaged me yesterday evening for a catch up. He'd recently moved house and also tried coke for the first time. I was a little concerned, as I've known a few people get hooked on that stuff. Turns out his housemate does coke. I told him to be careful, as I saw the...

Well, it is here, december 31, 2017, while I'm writing this at 4:47pm, waiting for the year to be over, for the change to date, for going to sleep and wake up in another day which for some people is a day to start change, to forget the past. While me, I'm still thinking in so many things I've...

I am living on the autism spectrum. I didn’t know until weeks ago. I accepted the diagnosis as one of relief and a gift. It has since taken me down memory lane. In my mind, I have relived episodes of the distant past as well as recent. One of those memories was of a Christmas Eve at Grandma and...

Some years ago I came across one of those 9-11 stories. A story that occurred on that fateful morning when the planes came crashing at the towers in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, and a field in Pennsylvania. A priest was near the location in New York when the first plane hit...

If I could take a single snapshot of myself as a child, it would be of me as a little girl looking out the window watching the children play. A child wishing to join in, but too afraid to step outside and ask "can I play?" Maybe if she had asked, they would have let her join in the circle...
I had a long conversation with an acquaintance (I have a hard time accepting non-special ed people as my friend) my age about my anxiety. I was very surprised how much he cared about me.
From my last entry, I managed to break the cycle! Back to this entry... I am staying with my boyfriend at the moment, and occasionally there are musicians that come and busk outside. Today the guy playing a steel drum has returned. Usually I don't mind, but considering he's been outside since 9...
I recently started a blog of personal stories relating to our journey in understanding our daughter's high-functioning autism, the lack of accommodations in the public school system and the general lack of understanding of the complexities of each individual with autism. My blog is...
This is my first entry! Here goes.. The main reason why I'm fed up is that I can't sleep. I've generally always had problems getting to sleep, since I can remember. But this latest bout of insomnia started two weeks ago. I had a terrible head cold that went to my chest, having asthma doesn't...

I dread leaving my apartment. I live in a third floor walk up. Once a day I have to go and collect my mail which is in the hall way on the ground floor. There is this old man who lives in the flat next to the mail boxes. Sometimes he waits out there for people to get their mail so he can talk to...
