Running on fumes

I’ve been re-thinking Spoon Theory and how it applies to me recently. I wrote about spoons before, but I have come to the conclusion that Spoon Theory doesn’t really reflect what I experience. The way I understand it, you start the day with a set number of spoons, and when you have used them all... Continue Reading →

Aspie Moments: The Conference

This is a slightly longer story than just a “moment”, but I’ve been using this header to indicate that I’m going to talk about something specific that’s been happening in my life. On one weekend in October, I had a double whammy: first, a work-related conference, and then a weekend meeting of one of the... Continue Reading →

Blue Sunday

This weekend was a bit of a disappointment to say the least, and I’m going to write a whole post about it because it’s my blog and I can! My mood has been only just about okay-ish all week – my mood tracker tells me that it’s been "meh" most days, with a dip into... Continue Reading →

Aspie Moments #5: The Event

This weekend was the middle one of three in a row when I have to socialise and “do things” for long periods of time. Last weekend was probably the most stressful. It involved driving 200 miles to an unknown place, meeting up with 15 people, spending all Saturday afternoon and evening with them, staying overnight... Continue Reading →

Aspie Moments 4: Lost For Words

I know that there are many people who don’t speak with their voices, but instead rely on written or screen-based or other methods of communication. I know that there are others who only lose the ability to speak in certain situations and fall back on those other methods at those times. Me, I’m good with... Continue Reading →
