2016 ~ The year the lightning bolt struck and everything changed…

Susan Miller, over at Astrology Zone (by far the best and most accurate astrologer I’ve ever known), had said early on in 2016 that Virgos could expect to be able to draw a line in the sand between everything that occurred before 2016 and everything that occurred afterward.  Although she didn’t (couldn’t) provide specifics (everyone’s … More 2016 ~ The year the lightning bolt struck and everything changed…

Making healthy choices

As an Aspie (that is to say that I “have” Asperger Syndrome), I often experience challenges with executive function. Executive function is a family of skills that includes planning, sequencing, decision-making, critical thinking, and others.

Beating anxiety (How it feels to start a business)

I … More (Belated) reflections on the year 2015: last year in review

Imitation of Life: a day in the life on the spectrum

I’m increasingly encountering the phrase, “if you’ve met one Aspie…you’ve met one Aspie.”  This means that there’s just as much variation among individuals on the spectrum (even within the same level) as there is among allistics (those not on the spectrum). This also means that I can only speak for myself. That being said, I’ve … More Imitation of Life: a day in the life on the spectrum

No one knew me

The title of this post comes from a phrase buried deep in the lyrics of “Mad World” as covered by Gary Jules, which perfectly illustrate that isolated, alien feeling I have known for most of my life. I’m embarrassed to say that I actually had an idea for a blog post that would have been … More No one knew me
