I thought I could do this.

I thought I could do this, write a blog about autism. I still think I can, but not now. I’m in burnout, depression, and generally a dark place in my mind that takes up all my energy to fight against. And the other fact is, I have no fucking clue what my autism is; what…

I got burned out

It has been a few weeks since I have written for the blog. Because I am home with a burn-out. It took me long enough to admit to it. The burn-out had been there for weeks, maybe even months. Only I couldn’t stop; we needed the financial support that my job provided. This is a…

Meditation accountability.

First, I will not do a whole ‘if I do not do this. Then this will happen thing.’ I am not adding even more pressure to the already high mountain of stress. I want to keep track and inspire others to do this alongside me if you wish to; no pressure! But here it goes,…

About Me

Hello, I’m Serena.
I am a first-time mom to a lovely boy, Wife of one amazing husband, and cat mother of two funny, cute cats who have been with us for a few years.
Recently I got diagnosed with ADHD and Autism, and I am still figuring it all out.
I started this blog to write down my thoughts, days, and everything I experienced while being a mother, me, and more.

For some extra information, I’m dutch and live in the Netherlands.
My autism and ADHD are my own; they make me, me. I’ve found that I see things differently and do things differently than others might. I also know that my ADHD and autism aren’t the same as others. I’m somewhere on the spectrum, and even if you or someone you know are on the same spot, it still doesn’t mean that my autism and my way of looking at life are the same as yours or theirs. As I said before, my autism is my own. My history and upbringing made me who I am, all mixed in with autism and ADHD. My life experiences gave me tools to navigate life to this point and further.
