Remembering my Father

Is it the most wonderful time of the year? For many, it is not. I do not feel so chipper, even as I embrace my home decorations that I just placed out for #Christmas . I am planning on going to a few more #Holiday events, including some #HolidayShopping too.

Theme parks here are buzzing, and my husband and I are lucky to have bought tickets to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas party in Magic Kingdom Disney World here in Florida.

But.. I cannot help but think of my Dad. Call me #Crazy but when you lose someone that you've known your whole life and it's the first Christmas without him... It hurts so bad.

My #BipolarDisorder symptoms have not been the best either. I feel like I am on velosicoaster at Islands of Adventure and I don't like roller coasters! I am up and down, and upside down, straight up, and left and right. I feel like I am a #yoyo from the 1990s. I think it's the days being shorter, and the fact my Dad isn't here, that my symptoms are more #difficult to deal with.

How is your #holidayseason kicking off so far?

When do you like to do your Christmas Shopping? #DistractMe

It’s the holiday season and it’s time for the craziness of holiday shopping and buying presents. I like to go shopping as early as possible. I already have most of my Christmas shopping done. When do you like to go Christmas present shopping? #Disability #Anxiety #DistractMe #RareDisease #HolidayShopping #Depression #MightyMinute


#Neurodiversity #GiftGuide #HolidayShopping

Holidays are coming up, not sure what to say when people ask "what do you want for holiday?" Or know a neurodivergent person you want to get a gift for, but they already have an assortment of fidget cubes and a weighted blanket? Here are 3 ideas for affordable gifts (and things I'm going to ask my relatives for lol)

Musicians earplugs. These are made to not distort sounds like ordinary earplugs, also they are reusable and less bulky than headphones. $15-30 will get a pair for everyday use that helps to lessen background noise and cope with overlapping sounds.

Silly putty, slime, anything squishy/soft and pocket sized even a tiny stuffed animal keychain, a scarf or headband, anything that can be carried around conveniently for sensory needs.

Gift cards for convenience services such as Uber, Lyft, Postmates, Instacart because executive dysfunction and sensory or processing overload makes everyday tasks such as getting to work/school/appointments, grocery shopping, etc much more difficult and requires more significant effort.
