I am not a doctor. I self-diagnosed my concerns and then had my doctors confirm. I was able to do that due to blog posts by other people. So I feel it’s my responsibility to share my experiences in case I can pay it forward by doing so.
I’m also throwing things out as I have time rather than saving them until they are polished – take that perfectionism!
- Perfect is the enemy of the good
- You don’t need to be perfect, just good enough
- Practice makes progress
- So check your aim to be sure you like your destination!
- Which wolf wins? The one you feed
- Better finished satisfactorily than incomplete perfection
Embrace diversity with curiosity!
Above is what I use for my signature (as of 2022). This site has gone through various iterations, but mostly in the past and now I use it to info dump and share knowledge – previously more with family and friends, then with folks with struggles like I’ve had. I have benefitted greatly from others doing so, and want to make sure I pass on the kindness.
I now am also wanting to share as advocacy work to make a better future for my child and everyone else and also to practice the new SEL skills I’m learning myself.
I definitely don’t have the bandwidth to read or reply to comments, so they are turned off.
Labels that have helped me understand myself: HSP, INFP, Introvert, ADHD, Autism (I first found and resonated with the former Asperger’s/Aspie name), Ehlers-Danlos, POTS (Postural Orthstatic Tachycardia Syndrome), Raynaud’s Syndrome.
