Mystery SOLVED (?)

I don’t want to say it’s solved for sure, but I could very well have just found a nugget. Some of y’all are (well) aware that I live with an adult-onset histamine excess that causes me much grief, and has done so for more than 7 years. The interesting–and frustrating–part is, it doesn’t seem to … More Mystery SOLVED (?)

Learning to count

Soooo… It’s been exactly a week since my due date for starting on my healing journey.  Where am I at so far? Well, up until today, I didn’t really know.  I’ll admit it–I hadn’t gotten very far, at least not yet. I’m a map person.  I rely on them a lot.  This includes road trips, … More Learning to count

Abundance and emptiness 

Here I go again, off chasing the dichotomy thought-butterfly (grin).  (In Texas, that rhymes poetically, because “again” and “grin” sound the same at the end.) I’ve lived in a variety of neighborhoods.  I grew up experiencing the yin and yang–everything from rural farming communities to skid row districts where fairgrounds tend to be located to … More Abundance and emptiness 

Memories of clinging

During the years of 2010, 2011, and even 2012, I blogged a lot on here. I shared with you my favorite books, CDs, music genres, websites, my health issues, and how damn good it felt to leave Dallas for greener and hillier San Antonio pastures. I talked about how good it felt to have graduated … More Memories of clinging

Project: Overhaul 

OK, the time has come for me to take my health back.  I don’t quite know what took it; I’m guessing a little slide off a bandwagon here, a little liberty taken there, or maybe it’s more like a self-delusion here and some inertia there.  But who’s counting, and does it matter, if the end … More Project: Overhaul 

Beating anxiety (How it feels to start a business)

I’m cold. I’m wrapped in a blanket, even though anyone else would say it’s plenty warm in the room.  I want nothing more than to disappear, to become one with the blankets I’m wrapped up in. I’m quiet. Incapable of saying much.  My brain is far too busy and conflicted for that.  I am petrified, … More Beating anxiety (How it feels to start a business)

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
