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 →

Still here

It's been over a month since I have posted. Life got in the way. Mostly, I've been dog-paddling my way through the messy situation at work. There were a couple of meltdowns and lots of stress, and I took a week off to recoup my sanity. Tomorrow I go back and I won't say there... Continue Reading →

The parents had a good time, and that was what the day was supposed to be all about - celebrating Father's Day and my partner's dad getting to see the house.... Continue Reading →

My week, so far

I created this image of my broken heat pump with a WannaCry malware infection screen over it as a joke, but it kind of captures what my week has been like so far quite nicely, except that I couldn't figure out how to also superimpose the giant medical bill that came yesterday and the two...

Today was not the greatest of days. I had all sorts of logistical problems to work out that involved interaction and cooperation with others: specifically for those others to make the judgment call as to when some critical server reboots needed to take place. My job deals with public safety equipment, and if there's something... Continue Reading →
