Making Clothes — Day 10 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

This really isn’t “making clothes” but the starts of it, but here we have some of today’s “goofing off” (ie. not writing stuff on my “30 Days” stuff, which I’m still quite behind with). This is a dress repair I did today.  And I think that this is really where I have been working with […]

Executive Function — Day 9 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

I’m not really sure where this is going.  Just like all of them. This morning, I was thinking (don’t really remember when) about how important my understanding of executive function is to my day to day life.

Tea as Self Care — Day 4 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance — 2018 Autism Acceptance Month

This is being written almost 15 hours later than I wanted it to be released.  I apologise for being late with this.  I now realize that why I had not been able to work yesterday was a combination of “recovery from overload” and approaching the “peak” of being sick (which may have started as early […]

Welcoming Stimming — Day 3 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

This is a really new thing for me.  Well, not totally new, because I have been on a low level working on this.  Once I started to really accept that I am autistic, and start to look more at how I do stim, and what works and what does not work I have been working […]

Hey, I have had two less than expected “work days” the past two weeks, but I have got some work done (and have stopped work for now on Autism Jobs Site as I have some serious Datse Multimedia Productions tasks I need to do, so going to do that before tackling the work there). I […]

Lack of activity

For the last little while there has been a lack of activity, well, mostly a lack of visible activity.  Well, not entirely just a lack of visible activity, as even stuff going on in the background hasn’t been going on. So here I am trying to put a few of those pieces together. Social issues […]

The Myth of Lack of Empathy in Autism

I am not entirely sure how I will end up structuring this.  I am leaning more toward a flow of consciousness type post with this one, which I feel as I haven’t entirely thought about how to write this is most natural for me. Recently I heard about how yawns are contagious, and that they […]

Sensory Overload

I first heard of sensory overload specifically in terms of it being a trait of autism.  This started to explain a few things for me.  In a number of cases I would experience sensory overload.  Then I decided to do a search for it, and found the Wikipedia page, and looked at the list of […]
