The other day sucked. To explain, I need to backtrack a bit. A few years back, my therapist referred me to a psychiatrist to look into getting something prescribed to help with my insomnia/fragmented sleep. He had some ideas of what to try, based on what had worked for a couple of other Aspie clients,... Continue Reading →

Rules of Clothing

Am I the only person who tucks in their shoelace ends because the tapping of the little plastic aglets at the tips against the surface of the shoe causes me sensory issues? I've become more and more noise-sensitive over time and this sound causes me distress as I walk down the echo-y halls at work.... Continue Reading →

36 Hours

Well, I am home. I left the house on Thursday at ten-thirty in the morning and pulled back in around four-thirty in the afternoon on Friday, so that was thirty six hours altogether, with over twelve hours of that on the road.

I was sitting on the couch a few minutes ago, alone in the house because my partner went out to a social event, and all... Continue Reading →

Outlet mal*

*That's not a typo. So I made it through another week, mostly by going to bed before nine, and as we were having breakfast this morning, my partner asked what my plans were for the day. I shrugged noncommittally. "You mentioned earlier in the week that you wanted to buy some sweatpants and shoes..." she... Continue Reading →

Control interrupted

Well, my surge of productivity and self-improvement has kind of fizzled, mostly due to a completely disrupted routine. Between bad weather, scheduling changes, and several other things that completely derailed my normal work pattern, I'm having to get back into the flow of things. I hate routine changes, it completely messes me up. I started... Continue Reading →
