For me I know this is a start of a great beginning. I can and others that provide services to me can realize a sense of happiness that has been missing for some time. I honestly think this is one of the happiest decisions that I have made and at the right time and for the right reasons. I can feel so much happier and more at ease even though we are coming off of a election and in the middle of a global pandemic, my outlook on life is so much greater than it has been in the past year.
n the end I had to realize that I needed to stop having the end-of-the-world feeling and realize that there were pandemics before this one and they’ll likely be ones after, maybe not in our lifetime, but there’s a great world of unknowns out there.
Well, it’s been an exciting week to say the least. In a little of a week-and a half time, I had an interview for housing, toured an apartment, took a weekend to think about it, signed a lease, got the furniture and household items ready and made the move in a single day. I couldn’t think of a turnaround from two chapters ago to this new chapter in such a short time (five months) But, the powers put things in happening for a good reason.
As part of my day program, I have been contributing to the weekly newsletter there.
Educate yourself as much as you can of each resource available to autistics that you can grab knowledge of. As sad as it sounds, the next day is not always promised to us, and our treasured autistics could be without those they love. Then they be mixed up in the system and in an unwanted situation that they are not satisfied in or severely dislike.
As we are in the middle of a resurgence of the COVID-19 Pandemic, I have slowly learned that I cannot change the world because not everyone believes what I believe. Some say I buy in too much to the media, however the facts are data driven and persons in the world are experiencing sickness more than ever.
One thing I have learned in this chapter of my life I am currently in is that I am realizing that I do in fact struggle with some tasks that others do not as far as it comes to independence. For the longest time struggling with coming to terms that you can have intelligence and obsession about somethings but some basic skills, like cleaning for example you just don’t have the niche for.
