It often feels as if there's a switch in my brain, one that periodically gets switched, and I'm not in control of it. For a while I was having problems sleeping, no matter what I did I couldn't get to sleep; it would be 2, 3, 4, even 5 o'clock and gone before I fell... Continue Reading →
I know how this feels, I have days when I just sit there, staring at the computer with a mental list of things to do, utterly unable to get moving on anything.
There are times when my anxiety takes over, these are the days when I feel stuck. There is so much to do and too many things depending on me. Looking around at the mass before me, my life seems completely overwhelming.
There is too much to do, where do I even start? I am so stuck.
I get lost, perfectionism takes over, or my inspiration simply vanishes. Being productive becomes impossible but in not being productive I am only making my life worse. The endless loop of chores and work bury me alive and I can’t get out.
Drowning in all of it. Adulthood, responsibilities, work, family, people who depend on you. Some days I just want to run, run away. Maybe if I run far enough, if disappear without a word in the night, I will escape my troubles.
I want to be invisible.
What troubles would I leave behind? So…

I'm alright so far today, but yesterday was a very bad day for me, I was so stressed I came very close to a meltdown that would have resulted in the loss of my laptop through a Hulk Smash kind of moment, and it's all thanks to Microsoft and Windows 10. I haven't been a... Continue Reading →
I'm a little embarrassed to admit this but the other day I had an article I wrote posted on a writer's site and I plum forgot to let you all know about it. Now that I've remembered, here's the link, in case any of you would like to read about what it's like for me... Continue Reading →
Since I can't find the enthusiasm to post anything more serious today, I thought I'd go with something simple, and give you all a look at my girl Mollie, she had a haircut today and slimmed down to almost nothing. It's amazing what a difference a trim makes - if only I could slim down... Continue Reading →
This is yet another article on this subject that I feel a whole-hearted resonance with - I have experienced everything said here myself. I don’t talk about my anger issues any more. They are behind me now and I don’t like to dwell on negative things in the past. When I was younger I... Continue Reading →
Today I am suffering the agony of writer's block - not with regard to my books, I'm in editing mode on Where There's A Will and it's going really well, and I'm pretty sure if I were to sit down with one of my many book ideas I would have no problem there. No, I'm... Continue Reading →
Okay, as many of you will realise from my title, I'm a fan of Game of Thrones, I like both the books and the tv series, though with every season they become more and more separate. This post isn't really about either, however, so sorry to those who have found there way here because of... Continue Reading →
I have to agree with this, I don’t want to have to explain myself to people, I want them to understand what my condition is, why I am the way I am, and to give some consideration to the difficulties I have dealing with social situations.
I have written my entire blog around the theme of being “Anonymous” because many Autistic people are invisible, unseen and anonymous in the world. Autism is an “invisible disability” meaning you can’t tell someone is Autistic unless you ask them (or know Autism VERY well and are paying close attention).
People have awareness of Autism – they know exists, they know that Autism is a popular conversation, and it’s prevalence seems to be increasing. In 2014 it was estimated that 1 in 68 children (1 in 42 boys and 1 in 189 girls) are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
People know that Autistic children can have trouble in school and may be prone to meltdowns, but they don’t understand what causes a meltdown. Being aware that Autism exists and having acceptance of Autistic people are two very different things.
Today is World Mental Health Awareness day – but today I am NOT…
