Growing Pains. (Boring Health Stuff that Might Help Someone)

    This is from a Facebook Post a couple weeks ago. It helped some people. So I am posting it here: I am autistic. I also have an autonomic nervous system condition. I didn’t know these two facts until I was over the age of 40. I spent decades in search of answers. For… Continue reading Growing Pains. (Boring Health Stuff that Might Help Someone)

The Naysayers and The Names We Call Ourselves

Before you continue, I encourage you to read this and this. Primarily, so I don’t have to repeat myself. * Much like the gender spectrum, considering the neurodiversity spectrum, I believe it is my personal right (and yours) to self-identify. * My neurology, essentially my autism (or Aspergers), is part of my identity and genetic… Continue reading The Naysayers and The Names We Call Ourselves

‘Everyday Human’

Today I started a Facebook group called Everyday Human. This serves as a short history from Everyday Aspergers to Everyday Human. My hope is I won’t have to start a new group, in a year’s time, called: Everyday Alien. Then again, maybe that wouldn’t be such a bad thing! In 2012, I began my blog… Continue reading ‘Everyday Human’

My Human Body Suit Sucks and a ‘God Thing’

In early-May, after two months of continual, extreme chest pressure and shortness of breath, (and basically all the COVID-19 symptoms feasible), David drove my stubborn butt back to urgent care. I refused to go at first, even after David insisted, and didn’t actually go into the clinic until my boss and good friend/coworker made me… Continue reading My Human Body Suit Sucks and a ‘God Thing’

I’d Love You If You Were a Lobster

Life lately is a shit-muffin. Which reminds me. I had my first ever slice of brown sugar pie, as an Easter (curbside order) treat, and declared that it’s officially my least favorite dessert, hovering at the bottom, below banana cream pie. Oddly, on Easter Sunday, while sitting on the balcony by myself, I saw a… Continue reading I’d Love You If You Were a Lobster

Guesswork in the Time of COVID-19

Sitting here in bed, after an online meeting with my kind coworker, feeling out of breath and a bit overly-anxious. I just finished wiping a blob of Manuka honey off the Otterbox protective cover on my Samsung-10 smartphone, thinking I wish my body had an Otterbox case. It’s day twenty-three (23) of being ‘sheltered in… Continue reading Guesswork in the Time of COVID-19

“It’s Okay to Be Afraid” Notes to Self in the Year of COVID-19

March 31, 2020, Day 22 of ‘shelter in place.’ During these times of the COVID-19 global pandemic, it is reasonable to assume that most individuals will experience some level of fear. Whether the fear is a result of self- or family-preservation, woes of the world, concerns over medical conditions or supplies, a neurological condition, mood… Continue reading “It’s Okay to Be Afraid” Notes to Self in the Year of COVID-19

Got Magnesium? Airways, Immune Function, and Overall Health

I like the letters MG. They were my initials my entire childhood and young adult years, before I married. Mg also stands for magnesium. “Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, keeps the heartbeat steady, and… Continue reading Got Magnesium? Airways, Immune Function, and Overall Health
