Struggling today, I feel like I'm failing at everything, feels like I've got grit under my skin and even the air hurts. Had to come home and hide which is unfair on my kids but I really don't want to have a meltdown because that is so much worse for them.

On the plus side, this time last year I would have had the meltdown because I wouldn't even have been aware of the build up. So that's progress I suppose.

pondering procrastination.
A lot has happened since I last wrote anything here. I returned to education and I'm now in the second year of an undergraduate degree in history and sociology. Which is quite exciting.                                                                        ...

Brilliant service, really helpful and accommodating staff, warm and friendly atmosphere. Plus... soft play area for the kids. Top banana!

This is what life is like most days, what is missing is the tactile side of things; textures, uneven and cracked pavements, cobblestones, wind or air conditioning blowing, people brushing past you, etc, etc. The world is confusing and overwhelming and often painful when you are on the spectrum. We don't have the filters that other people have so, for example, even though I have specially chosen my clothes today for comfort and warmth, no tags, no irritating textures, muted colours, I am still acutely aware of the weight of the fabrics on my body, the places on my skin where the fabric touches, the places where it squeezes (waistband, leg and arm cuffs, shoes). I could go on but I'm hoping you get the picture. Please let's be more compassionate to everyone, more tolerant of everyone, more accepting of everyone. We all need each other. We all have something to give.
