Writing About Science — Day 13 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance — 2018 Autism Acceptance Month

Currently trying to get a little bit closer to be on schedule for the series.  Today one of my friends (well not sure about that term in general, but I’ll use it) was asking about how we can do “science” in psychology, and if it could be considered to be a “legitimate science”. This was […]

Games as Escape — Day 12 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance — 2018 Autism Acceptance Month

picture should go here, but I can’t find anything appropriate with my Flickr Over the past couple of days I have been playing Eternal Lands and have been really enjoying it.  I started because I had gotten into a funk, and decided to go back to the game that I was able to commit to for […]

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. Yesterday I had planned on working, and because I had planned to work, it was difficult when I […]

Magical Creatures — Day 8 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

I know that I am writing “Day 8” on April 11th.  This I am trying to be OK with.  It feels a little difficult being OK with it.  But I believe that I’m doing better with that (more in the next post I think, or maybe it’s the one after that?)  Right now I want […]

Body Weirdness — Day 7 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance — 2018 Autism Acceptance Month

Today (April 6th) I was having some thoughts about how my “body works” and how a lot of these things that apparently are “very strange” are actually quite common with autistic people.  So I think there are a number of different things that come up with that. Unusual Gait Clothing Annoyances Pain Hypermobility Body Language […]

Taking Breaks — Day 6 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance — 2018 Autism Acceptance Month

Yesterday I had hoped to have a post ready for today (again).  So instead I am writing today’s post, well today.  I’d also hoped that I would have tomorrow’s post written yesterday.  So when I was thinking of this today, I realized, that this is actually an “OK thing”.  In thinking that, I really thought […]

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 […]
