O am so pissed that I am missing all the move in fun. Trying to follow along
I think that's really positive, I'm the same, recently, been looking at clothes with patterns and more colour, more 'feminine' things too, I never used to look at things like that! I also used to wear lots of black.I am getting are much more colourful
Hopefully you'll get to the craft thing next week, is it free? What sort of things do they do, is it a variety?try next week
That's good advice.counter the inner critic basically, to look at the positives. And remind yourself you've been through something that really affects your confidence, but that actually you're a good person.
I'd like to find more things that will help, I think a big part is changing how we view ourselves. I've always been very hard on myself.I wonder if we can figure out more things that will help with this? I will have a think, look around a bit
I'm so glad to hear this, I was a bit worried when you first got there but sounds like things improved since then.It really does feel like home
That all sounds like a lot of fun! I really am proud of you, you've come a long waydancing in the kitchen in particular. And cleaning and arranging things. And today, making my soup for dinner, with the new chef's knife, so enjoyable, almost meditative
Thank you for saying you are proud of me @Lumos ❤
This is also good advice, I'm going to think about a phrase. I liked the bear, I tried some of the others too, the dogs made me laugh :)))figuring out a grounding phrase that you can say to yourself eg I am responding to a trauma memory, but yo figure out what will work for you. I'm going to have to think about that.
Also to combine it with the larger parent figure (I told her I was trying to start doing that - hence her telling me about the bear above)
And also to deliberately spend a moment remembering how you feel / felt around others who weren't abusive and do / did like or love you
It is, one of my biggest worries, really. I have started saying that I have invisible disabilities. When I typed that to an online group I joined, I noticed another member introduced herself that way too, after I had.what to say to people about my past and situation. Is that the kind of thing that worries you too?
He had selective mutism that helped me suspect more about his autism. And a lot of melt downs.Thanks, @AnD I relate to quite a few of those. Is the education around autism good in Sweden? It's still strange for me yo think about not realising something so big about myself until the age of 50! I think things are better than they were.
Do you feel like you understand your son's Autism?
Sounds great, glad to hear he is doing betterIt's getting better and he is doing neurofeedback that has helped with his social anxiety
