I’m feeling a little better, a shout out and thank yous…

As I shared recently I have been feeling more anxious, stressed, not motivated and feeling all over the place for the last couple weeks. It kept getting worse no matter what I did to try to gain back control of my thoughts, feelings or just return to somewhat of a decent state. There was times I really worried if I was leading up to something worse like an autistic shutdown, depression again or I would just lose complete control of my functioning etc. Rather it was rational or not, it really scared me.

I am happy to share that I am feeling better. Not 100%, but my thought processing is coming back and I am a little more motivated. The weird thing is nothing really changed physical or emotional wise. In fact. this has been the most stressed out the hubby and I have been in quite some time. My mood started to improve yesterday afternoon when the hubby and I spent about an hour shoveling the drive way, walk ways and doing some outside clean up. I came in sweating my arse off, but it felt good to help the hubby (I am known to leaving all the things like shoveling up to him. lol) get a work out in and get the outside work done. I got a really good nights sleep and slept in until almost 11 am this morning, and I am feeling okay again. However throughout the past couple weeks I have overall kept up with my exercise routine, cleaning routines, applying for jobs and was sleeping decently (minus a couple of nights). I never really slowed down entirely and I didn’t take more down time than normal. So I am not sure what really changed my mood, but I am glad to slowly be getting back to feeling decent again, hopefully.

I would also like to take this time to give a huge shout out and thank you to all my followers here at my new blog. The ones who followed me to my new found blog from my old one, you have no idea how much it means to me and how excited I am to have you on my continued blogging journey. Thank you for your continued support. To the new followers who just discovered me and my blog, welcome! I am very happy to have you join me. I really appreciate it and look forward to interacting or continue interacting with all you fellow bloggers. It also confirms any doubts I had and that I made the right choice to open this new blog and leave the old one behind.

I have so many new ideas and am excited to fill this blog with a ton of content. It may just take some time and a lot of notes to stay organized, plan more things out how I want things done and how I want to add more content etc.

That’s all from me for now, I am off to play The Sims. πŸ˜ƒ



I am a 30-year-old female living life on the autism spectrum and still trying to find my place in the world. I have other associated disorders or mental illnesses such as OCD, anxiety (generalized and social) and a history of depression to name a few. I love writing and have been writing different styles for as long as I can remember. Like most people who have a strong passion for writing I started writing stories and wrote in a journal in grade school. I remember specifically purchasing my first diary/journal that had a lock with my cousin when I was around 10 year-of-age. I was very excited to start writing in it as it was the first fanciest and most formal writing tool I owned. I think that was when my writing journey really began as I started to write daily. Some of my main goals for this blog is to write about autism, it's associated disorders and my life in hopes to help others. To spread awareness and educate in hopes to end some of the stigmas society has attached to things mental illness and autism. To meet like minded bloggers or be inspired by other writers. Other than that I will post or share anything that is of interest or pops into my head. As I grow older, the more I understand about myself and experience life I find myself wanting to seek a further diagnoses or a reevaluation. That is part of the reason why I am opening a new blog here and the reason for my new found blog name. So I hope you all will join me on my continued journey and new discoveries. My diagnoses are not all who I am so here are some random facts about myself. Some of my hobbies besides writing include music, The Sims 3, Xbox, Netflix, scrapbooking and the outdoors. I have a very strong passion for music. It is like my drug/medicine/obsession and you may catch me from time to time preaching it like a religion. Apologies in advance I am married to a man who is not on the spectrum, but he is as equally as amazing and I am insanely in love with him. Like my rants about my life and music you will also hear a lot about him. I was born and raised in Canada who recently seeked Permanent Residence in the USA, so I am no longer an illegal alien. Although I am still an 'alien' tbh. I say imo and tbh too much. (imo = in my opinion/tbh = to be honest) They are also probably the only two abbreviations you will catch me using as one of my many pet peeves are people who 'typ like dis' The only thing that probably makes me a stereotypical Canadian is my obsession with hockey. I am a very organized person. However, it is normally with things that don't really matter in life such as my files on my computer that are organized in folders, within folders... I often can be perceived as rude at first until you get to know me. I have a huge imagination. Some of my favorite animals are dogs, cats, monkeys, penguins and elephants. I prefer animals to humans tbh. Basically I am another complexed human being like everyone else trying to find her way through life and I welcome you all to my newly found blog. This description is subject to change at anytime as my blog grows, I add more facts about myself or for whatever reason I feel fit. ~ My Authentic Mind
