  • I’m Back!!! (with new blogging insights)

    Hi everyone! So, I had a nice week off from blogging. I needed the break to give myself some time to relax and focus on other things. While I was away I asked myself some hard questions. Do I still enjoy blogging? Why was blogging stressing me out so much? Should I change some of […]

  • Holidays, Routine Changes, and Anxiety

    Been feeling stressed. I don’t know if it is because I am autistic or just part of my personality, but even the smallest changes to my routine tend to throw me off and cause a lot of anxiety…and the holidays seem to be filled with those kinds of routine manglers. For instance, tonight I have […]

  • Stressful Week So Far

    This week has been stressful. I’m not sure if I’m just overreacting to things because I’m autistic and hypersensitive to everything (especially changes in routine), or if this would even throw many normal people off their game, but since Monday: I had to wait hours at the BMV to renew my driver’s license and then […]

  • Mixed State or Hell?

    The past few days have not been the greatest. I’ve been both super anxious and fairly depressed. I guess it is probably what most people would call a mixed state in the bipolar community. I feel on edge all the time. My brain is constantly telling me something is wrong and that I need to […]

Perhaps they are masters of the subtle put-down, love to give […]

  • Things I Worry About

    Are we destroying this planet to the point that it will be unable to sustain life? Will our arrogance, perpetual fighting and greed end up in our mutual destruction? Are we a foolish race causing our own eventual extinction? Did any of the narcissistic abuse of my childhood rub off on me? Am I narcissistic? […]

  • Should We Move or Not?

    My husband and I have been discussing potentially moving, which is stressful but also a little bit exciting. There are big positives and negatives to consider. On the plus side, right now we live out in the middle of nowhere and everything is pretty far away. Our doctors, shopping centers, and my husband’s work are […]

  • At Least I Accomplished Something…

    Been super unmotivated and blah today. I wanted to write a post but didn’t want anything that would take too much brain power lol, so decided to list the things I DID manage to get done today as a way to give myself a little pat on the back for even trying! Stuff I Got […]

  • Fluoride Fears

    Sometimes I worry about fluoride…specifically ingesting too much of it. Too much fluoride can cause a condition called skeletal fluorosis, which is often mistaken for arthritis or fibromyalgia. Most people know our toothpastes and other dental products often contain fluoride, but many don’t realize all the other sources of fluoride we ingest every day. There […]
