Tomorrow is the anniversary of when I first was taken into hospital... On the 28th January 2018, I was booked into the Premier Inn at Skelmersdale, to go to my niece's christening the next day. I ended up in hospital for six weeks instead...
Anxiety & Chaos — The Antithesis of the Aspie Mind…
Anxiety and Chaos rules my mind. It feels like it's been long buried under mountains of agonising pain, sorrow, grief. Fibro-Fog, medication, and more and more Chaos and Anxiety. I can feel my mind still there, calling, struggling to be freed, to be heard... yet, there seems to be so little I can do about digging it back out.
Freedom To Sense Senses
These have recently become my new best friends... * * * The reason: The ability to now have better peripheral orientation and physical awareness. Part of me hopes they might also help tone my arms and legs... but I couldn't care less if they don't. With these, I know where my … Continue reading Freedom To Sense Senses

Being Ill Is My ID Card
It seems I've been nothing but ill my whole life. It has been there for as long as I can remember in some way.

Along with those things, a bunch … Continue reading Being Ill Is My ID Card

In fact, I have just been "let go" … Continue reading Cold World, Cold Hearts
