Hearing something you didn’t know you needed to hear. I think we all have those moments. Someone says, “you look great.” out of the blue, or they tell you that you can do this without asking that person to say those words to you. They are the words you need to hear without knowing it,Continue reading “Hearing something…”

Forgetting my meds….
For those who do not know, I have ADHD and Autism. This is a fun mix, I do not filter, and my brain goes so fast that I have found ten things in the house to be done before I even set my foot out of my bed in the morning. I have medication forContinue reading “Forgetting my meds….”
Finally, I’m back.
You haven’t heard from me for some time. The biggest reason why was that I didn’t have my full Grammarly account and I do not have the confidence to write and post without it. English is my second language, as Dutch is my first. And it isn’t so perfect that I trust my own writing.Continue reading “Finally, I’m back.”
Changes and getting used to them
There’s this “strange” thing about me. I can and can’t deal with changes. Yes, you read that right because I have two types of changes. One that I decided to make, this is nine out of ten times fine for me, and I can handle that switch like I think everyone does. And the secondContinue reading “Changes and getting used to them”
A snippet of Sunday.
I wanted to post this yesterday, but I also needed a moment to let it settle. I want to be honest, to myself and here. But this, it’s a lot. And to admit it to myself is a huge step, but saying it out loud to the world is even bigger. So I needed toContinue reading “A snippet of Sunday.”
Seeing the world through his eyes
I’ve always wondered if what I see, do or say are correct or even normal. I’ve been aware of not being normal (and they are my own words, and how I felt in this world.) for my whole life. I always knew I was different; I never knew how or why until the diagnoses ofContinue reading “Seeing the world through his eyes”
A snippet from Thursday
27 January….. I do get scared, maybe too much. It’s not the kind of scared you are for a spider or something that makes your flight or fight instincts kick in. No, for me, it’s a scared or a fear that’s constant. Thoughts like, am I doing it alright, is this how it needs toContinue reading “A snippet from Thursday”
A snippet from Wednesday
26 January. Being a mom is already hard work; having the flu or, in my case, Corona doesn’t make it easier. And with my husband, who felt pretty sick the first few days, needing some extra love too. It wasn’t easy, especially when you wanted to give in and lay in bed all day. DoingContinue reading “A snippet from Wednesday”
A snippet from Sunday
16 January… I had planned on writing a lengthy post on Sundays and Wednesdays. But as you might figure out. This one will be short. I’m just too tired to write a lot, so I’m moving the topic I wanted to put down to tomorrow. It’s been a good Sunday, but a long one. AJContinue reading “A snippet from Sunday”
A snippet from Saturday
Saturday the 15th. They never told me that it would go through bone and marrow when your child would cry, that it would feel like being hit by a hundred hammers with spikes on them.I can handle crying when I know why. He hit his head or doesn’t want to sleep, but he’s tired. ButContinue reading “A snippet from Saturday”
