back from being AWOL

Hello everyone.

So as you’ve properly noticed I’ve been away for a while, not literally gone anywhere but have taken a little time out so to speak.
One of my last posts on this blog before I went AWOL was a post asking for help. A post which at the time was hard to write and that time is still a little hard to look back on, during which I found a local adult with Asperger’s support group which Is supported by the NHS, to which I self-referred myself to, and to which I was told in blunt terms that I ‘coped’ towel with life and therefore didn’t need any help as I have a job and maintain a house etc. etc. and they are there for people who have problems much worst with mine… [great!]  and then the lovely student nurse who was with them went on to take the mickey out of john barrowman, directly to me as well, and surely as she was working with the Asperger’s support team that taking mickey out of obsessions is not the best idea!  So I ended up being kicked off the books for not ringing to arrange a next meeting, this was despite me telling them I’m scared of making phone calls.. so in a way I also un self-referred.

I the mean time I began setting myself little goals in life, like plan out whole days in advance and make sure I  stick to them, I started eating at set time to ensure that I ate and setting alarms just to make sure I got out of bed, and like my new year’s resolution I set my self-little things I wanted to achieve or do within the year. #1 write a book.. Currently semi begun, #2, do something for other, achieved, #3 find a new hobby. – achieved.

This new hobby is running, not very good so far but I have my first sponsored run coming up soon for a charity my friend in involved with quite a bit [shes running it as well, [please check out her just giving page  to support us as I don’t have one, just add aspire to your personal message and she said I can count it towards my total], I’ve set myself a target of what’s to be raised and I am a little bit of it so far [its in September] I've also started to help a friend of mine make up ‘happy bags’ which she sells for the same cause as my run, these can be found on eBay I’ve made loads of them and all the other version’s so please help support if you can, otherwise I’ll be told off for the current excess stock issues!

Hopefully more posts and regular blogging will resume as per normal now things are a little bit back on track, I have lots of news to share with you all and updates on how Asperger's is having on my and what i've done to over come this.

New year resolutions

hello 2013 it's nice to meet you, hopefully you'll be a bit nicer to me than 2012.

this year I'm not going to set any new years resolutions, but a series of aims to alcoholism, hopefully as the year goes on I'll be able to cross them off one by one, but as there only aims I don't have to feel guilty about breaking them and I reckon I'll feel much better in the long run if I do it this way.

1) brush my teeth every day, (I'm getting there with this one but will take time)

2) stay on top of house work.

3) to be More organised.

4) to achieve something

5) to make a difference

6) to have something to smile about

7) to feel a sense of pride in myself

8) to continue to raise autism awareness.

9) to complete something off my bucket list!

hopefully I'll be able to update this as time passes and share how things are going! have had some ideas for new blog posts so keep an eye out for these over the next few months and remember to spread awareness of the uniqueness that is aspergers syndrome and autism!

happy New year

1 year on

happy birthday

today, on  year ago I began blogging, it's weird how time has flown and I'm very grateful for all of you who have been with me though this little journey. over the year we have looked at a variety of issues from bullying  to depression, health care and Christmas and I thank those from the bottom of my heart who have stuck with me!

my very first post was about George Michael having been admitted to an intensive care while on tourAnd reflections on my role of a Picu nurse and all the children I look after, (I worked it out the other day and realised its  100 a year, give or take.) George ended up cancelling the last part of his tour this year and hopefully he got the help he needed, in the UK there is a charity called icu steps which is meant to be great support post an icu admission, I do think hospital s should do more for these patients as it is a very traumatic time, something which I sometimes have nightmares about!

I had planned to see him in concert this year however unfortunate my the little thing known as work got in the way, not to sure I could have afforded it anyway, fingers crossed for next year but for now his album and my imagination we have to be enough.

this year I also haven't Seen John barrowman in anything due to his concert being cancelled (still think it's was a very stupid place to build a stage ) and not going to panto for various reasons, so perhaps this is the beginning of the end of the JB interest, but who knows! currently obsessed with a game on my iphone called bridges! as already completed it once and restored it to do it all again! it's very relaxing.

anyway I'll stop speaking for know, thank you once again to all who have followed both here and on Twitter/Facebook! here's to another year !

happy birthday blog!
