Under en utmattnigsyndom & sjukskrivning.♡ Så är alla små steg jag gör, stora steg för mej.👌🏻 Idag har jag klarat en mindre promenad i fina höstvädret ✌🏻🍁🌞
Samt en tur till bibblan 📚
Nu ska jag njuta av vad jag klarat idag!
Being a part of my autism community has been the most transformational, reconnecting gift to me as both a woman and a mother.
Today I received this beautiful box, filled with the most endearing, well considered items with so much loving and nurturing energy attached to each piece.
What an amazing blessing.
It was sent to me from a gorgeous Mum from across the country whom I’ve not met in real life.
It’s a magical thing to be acquainted with others who speak the same language of the heart just by being our authentic selves.
Thank you so much Zoe, this made my day.
P.S. I don’t know if you noticed, but you’ve totally put together a sensory box!
In a world where the rate of epigenetic conditions, such as autism, are skyrocketing - choose natural products. 🌿
In a world that’s becoming increasingly toxic - choose Mother Nature. ☀️
In a world where we unknowingly lather our kids with man-made synthetic chemicals - choose to become informed. Hunt it out. Dive deep. Search far and wide for the information that will empower you to take the best care of your precious babies. 💓
In a world where we have forgotten common sense - find your moral compass, and let it guide you back to your innate wisdom and the intelligence of your body. ✨
DM me to order doTERRA essential oils and receive FREE ongoing support from me - to you and your fam. 🌿✨ #backtobasics#lowtox#selfregulation
Not going to lie.
This is hard for me.
I tend to focus on the negative and forget about all the good things.
Before my break from work, I was feeling extremely overwhelmed.
And I was questioning whether I was actually the right person for the job.
My break gave me perspective.
It reminded me of all the good things.
The fact that I have an amazing team at work who support me.
The fact that I have wonderful support from all of you here.
And the fact that people at work, and you guys here, believe in me.
As corny as that sounds, hearing that you're worthy is a good thing.
So, I want you to know... YOU ARE AWESOME! Yep, you!

It's been 17 months since my diagnoses. This Instagram account has documented the #process . **Process** Such an important term to be considered post diagnosis.
It is much like the grieving process. Different stages at different times. I wrote about finally feeling *acceptance* not long ago. It flips in and out, on and off. It's not acceptance forever, therefore process over. But it was nice to feel it and the feeling is becoming stronger.
I took a bath lastnight (I love a hot bath). My first of the season when it's early but dark outside. I brought a warm light in, a speaker with some chill music and pulled across my new dark green curtain. I lay there for a long time, thinking (of course 😜), trying to read (The reason I jump) and zoning out into what I like to call LaLa Land.
Anyway, I lay there and wasn't even thinking about acceptance or any of the other process experiences (sadness, apathy, doubt, fear, excitement, hope)(some also experience anger but that's not something I've experienced- I had burned off most of that already). And I just had a moment. A snippet of time paused and I felt 'me'. I just felt like myself. Lying there, floating, zoning out, thinking thinking thinking, creative images flashing through my mind's eye. It was the act of not questioning any of it, explaining any of it, attaching to any of it that, I believe, gave me a moment of just simply existing in my natural state.
And as the feelings of acceptance have been increasing over the last while, I am now excited for the potential for more moments of 'me'. Where I just am.
The other day I got “your past eating disorder” and “your weight has rebounded a lot, have you thought about slimming world?” - yes I still struggle and wonder if people take me seriously when I am struggling because of how much my weight has rebounded - comments like this make it hard to confide at times. I am scared of spiralling into old habits, the thoughts have been strong recently. But I suppose strength and will power is what we all need when we struggle with anything in life. I am finally coming to terms with my asperger diagnosis I got 18 months ago and right now I feel like there’s so many labels and labels belong on price tags of new clothes ❤️❤️😂😂 #recovery#ednosrecovery#strength#aspergers#eatingdisorderrecovery#bemorepositive#positive
"Misslyckats"? Se då hit!
I vårt möte med deltagare får vi ofta höra av deltagaren att man upplever att man har misslyckats. Misslyckats med att skaffa ett arbete, att klara av sina studier, att kunna finna fungerande rutiner osv.
Vi som handledare/konsulenter ser det inte som att deltagaren har misslyckats, vi ser det som ett konstaterande i att något inte fungerat som det var eller är idag.
Vi handledare/konsulenter söker därför tillsammans med deltagaren efter lösningar för att finna hållbara strategier som deltagaren ska kunna använda sig av i jakten på arbete, studier, rutiner osv.
Varmt välkommen till oss på NPF Solutions.
Vi finns i Gävle, Malmö, Sandviken och Upplands Väsby.
Counted my Care Bear plushies and figures yesterday (not counted any other items like bags or lamps) and I have 170 Bears!
That doesn’t include beautiful Pouf-Pouf here because I made him myself so he doesn’t count as a collectible Bear. #carebears#collector#collection#aspergers#specialinterest
All those moments, far in distance, or intimately close in time, the special ones that have, or are about to occur. A moment like the one caught here. Keira ran into one of her teachers outside of school and this was her reaction. This photograph is love caught in time. I would never be able to articulate in words the gratitude I feel that Julie chose this profession and became a part of my daughter’s life. She loves you because you’re special, trust me, cause Keira can see right into peoples’ souls.
