Blog:The Silent Wave- FAQ, FMC (frequently made comments) and FTR (for the record)

It’s Sunday, which means that I’m doing a little cleaning, organizing, and clarifying, and today, that includes this blog (!).  I’ve been considering an FAQ of some kind, and perhaps I’ll write one, but this will probably suffice for now.  Baby steps and all that. 😉

Over the past few months of this blog’s growth, I’ve gotten a lot of neat questions and comments along certain themes, and I figure that for now, I’ll answer

Blog:Planet Autism- Worrying Perils for ASD-PDA Parents: the “Perfect Storm” for misunderstanding

This is a very hard post to write, for various reasons.  There are some in the autism community who feel very strongly about autism parents accepting all autistic behaviours and that parents should not speak negatively about them.  Being autistic myself, I see both sides and I don’t like seeing autism ‘martyrs’ who humiliate their children online with real names, videos and photographs of their child’s difficult moments and speak constantly of the negatives

Blog:My Anxious Suppositions- Sleep… Why do you hide?

Oh my gosh… I probably had the most productive day in a while. I went to town this morning then went on a 5 hour ride with my dad on his Harlley. When we got back, we went to dinner with some family friends until 8 pm. I thought I’d be exhausted, but I can’t SLEEP!

The reason I probably can’t sleep is because I have been sleeping for five days straight. My mom thinks

Blog:The Silent Wave- Theory of mind(reading)

Realizing that you’re autistic when you’re an adult means you get to do a lot of searching.  This takes multiple forms – soul-searching, Google-searching, memory-searching, and often, people-searching (the journey of finding others just like you).

In my internet searching, I tripped over a staggering number of tidbits that clicked my entire world into place.  It was like being given the instruction manual to my brain, and having it translated into my native language.

There

Blog:Losing It Slowly- ComicCon Day 1-Sensory Hell

So despite making the guy loosen my wristbad bwfore he atttached it, its still tighter than I would like on my arm. So I can  constantly feel it even when I am not moving. At the moment I am getting ready for bed and cringing at the thpugth of trying to sleep with this monstrosity on my wrist.

During the event I had a major lighting problem with them beaming this ultra bright light i

Blog:The Other Side- We have the power to rebuild… #autism

I owe a great big wet kiss to WordPress Discover Editor’s Picks for featuring my last blog post, For I am Human, on the 4th of July.

It’s brought me record likes and a lot of lovely new followers. Many have said what a beautiful poem this is – and I’m overwhelmed and surprised. It was written very quickly, but from the heart, which is the bit that counts probably.

The poem’s sentiment seems so

Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- Help?! WordPress inept

I write all my posts first on another writing based program on my computer before I copy and paste it to Word press. I don’t really add or edit anything on the section to add a blog post. When I post my blog it normally has issues with spacing after paragraphs and ends up looking like a unorganized disaster and probably makes it more difficult for followers or people to read. Some guesses I have

Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- OCD, it's relation to Autism and Me…

Autism and Aspergers have a lot of associated disorders such as attention deficit disorder, (ADHD) depression, generalized anxiety disorder and others. One of the more common ones is Obsessive Compulsive disorder (OCD) and because it is one of the more common disorders and how it effects me I really wanted to post about it, so here we go… For those of you who may not know what Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is, OCD is basically a

Blog:Losing It Slowly- ComicCon T-13 hours=Butter scraped over too much Toast

This is how I feel today.  I am achy, nauseated, and exhausted.  I cannot tell if I am actually getting ill, or it’s all a byproduct of the overwhelming anxiety. I have planned and over planned my weekend to death, and my dad has completely waved my scheduling conflict.  I have managed to escape the day mostly uninjured, and am hopeful that I will be able to sleep tonight.

Blog:The Silent Wave- The Aspie gypsy

I’m feeling reminiscent today.  Maybe it’s because the calendar has swung around to the right marker in time.  Or maybe the temperature has reached a particular zenith.  I’m not sure, and might never be.

If you live in Canada, from Winnipeg on west, or you’ve traveled there in the summer in the past 40 years, you know me.  You don’t know me, but you know me.  You wouldn’t recognize my face, for we were always

Blog:Losing It Slowly- Comiccon T-36 hours

So I have been managing my anxiety pretty well the last little bit.  And with anxiety for now, that is actually as good as it gets.  Today it fell apart.

I have photosensitivity, a mild headache, and am beyond tired.  I suddenly realized I let Comiccon creep up on me this year without any planning and now it is in 36 hours.  It doesn’t help that my schedule for the event has a major time

Blog:Married: With Aspergers- #Autistic Resonance – Dancing to the Same Beat

“I do not ask the wounded person how he feels, I myself become the wounded person.” ― Walt Whitman, Song of Myself

Almost all my friends are autistic: this wasn’t deliberate choosing on my part. No, there’s a deeper reason. My friends are the people I feel most comfortable around, the ones with whom I don’t have to hide or tone down aspects of myself.

Equally important, we get each other. We rarely have to

Blog:The Silent Wave- I was just trying to be friendly

Maybe I tried a little too hard.

Maybe I agreed a little too often.  Maybe I smiled a little too wide.  Maybe I laughed a little too loud. 

Maybe I hung around a little too long. 

 Maybe I said yes a little too eagerly.  Maybe I offered a little too much of myself.  Maybe I talked a little too much.  Maybe I shared a little too soon.  Maybe I was a little too honest/bold. 

 Maybe

Blog:Well Owl Be- Birthday post

I have been far too busy to keep up with an account of my life. I made it to NY on my motorcycle and am thoroughly convinced that I have a guardian angel. I got a flat tire during the second day. Not while I was going 85 down the highway but when I was stopped for gas. There was a great local shop that picked up the bike and got it fixed and got

Blog:The Silent Wave- To the parent whose child was just diagnosed with autism

Hi moms and dads 🙂

A little muse tapped me on the shoulder today to let me know that somebody out there needed to read this today.  Naturally, when that muse speaks, I oblige.  Because somehow, somewhere, she’s usually right.

So come on over and have a seat, and let’s talk.

You’ve just come from the psychologist’s or pediatrician’s office.  They said the A-word.  In connection with your child.  Or rather, they dropped it on

Blog:The Greatest Adventure- J3: Scooter Races

Tom loves his scooter. He’s had a scooter for most of his school life, it’s his pride and joy. I discovered it was much easier to get him to school if he could scoot there and once he got a set of wheels, he never wanted to walk anywhere again. He scoots to school and back, he scoots to the shops, he scoots to his grandparents’ house, he scoots to the park, he scoots
