My lovely boyfriend got me some cookbooks a while back, and I’m enjoying the results. I like cooking when there’s no pressure. It’s calming. And it makes me less nervous about trying new stuff. Today I made a few things from Super Natural Every Day by Heidi Swanson- farro soup and the spinach chop. Yesterday was broccoli gribiche. All of them are a little out of the ordinary, but good.
My therapist was on my case about self care the last time I was in, and eating real food is a big part of that for me. Maybe next I’ll remember to take my vitamins…

Ex boyfriend (current roommate) is doing some of the same stupid shit he did before his last big freak out. This is disquieting. And it will probably get worse before we can finally move away from each other. Not that he is looking forward to it. Which is the big problem here. It’s been six months, and answering my phone to tell my boyfriend I’m on my way still leads Xbfcr to epic temper tantrums.
Idk if it’s even worth fighting the obvious manipulation going on. It’s just under a month until I start the move out. My therapist is concerned for my safety as it is.
I’m so, so tired of this.
It’s amazing how different your perception of a person can be when you aren’t in love with them anymore.

emotionally manipulative things you should never say to people:

  • "i would kill myself without you"
  • "everyone leaves me, don’t leave me like they did"
  • basically anything that guilts the other person into staying in a relationship with you

I’m so fucking sick of being anxious that if I could get rid of it forever by putting it all in my leg and sawing it off with a dull spoon I would give the spoon a try.

It’s important to talk about how vaccines don’t cause autism, but can we please also talk about how much people must hate autism if they’d rather expose their child to polio, measles and chickenpox than autism?

for evidence of male fragility look no further than their basically universal fear of dating women taller than them

My bf is shorter than me and we both like it.

(I made a batch today. Hopefully it helps as much with the back as it did with the feet.)

I like this a lot. Turmeric is supposed to help mild depression, reduce inflammation, kick colds and stuff. When I remember to use it, it works for me.  (I don’t care if it’s placebo effect, personally. If it works, it works, even if it may be my mind doing the actual work.)

The first time I came across it was here. A few days ago I spotted this one.

The way I do it is a mix of the two and some of my own. The turmeric mix is a bit bitter for me on its own and I don’t tend to have lemons around. What I do have is Stash lemon ginger tea. I make a pot of that and add 3 to 5 tsp of the turmeric paste to a cup of it. My personal mix is about 3.5 tsp turmeric in a half cup of honey, a few cranks from the pepper mill, 3 tbs freshly grated ginger, and the zest of any citrus fruit I may have on hand, stirred together in a small glass bowl. Today it’s orange zest. I’ll add a tiny pinch of cayenne if it’s bitterly cold outside and I can’t get my feet warm.

Use a cup that you don’t mind staining sunshine yellow.

I have a squishy new nephew and his name isn’t quite settled yet.

Finally applying for food stamps like I should have done half a year ago. The interview process has never been fun, but now it’s on the phone. Fml. I want to go hide in my bed.

What happens when an old man on the autism spectrum takes prozac?

I’ll let ya know.

Probably not too different from when a young lady on the autism spectrum took celexa. The first month may be rough, but it’ll level out. Hang in there, friend. I hope it helps.

So far, it may as well be a placebo.  Maybe I feel a little less anxious?  I have a little less rage?  I dunno.  I’ve never had much of an emotional range to begin with.

Keeping an open mind.

Yeah, I felt the same way the first week. They take a while.

"The movie doesn’t tell the story of the monster portal which opened in the Atlantic, because Ireland dealt with it single-handedly. It turns out that “being invaded from other lands” is pretty much our entire history, cultural legacy, and best way to get us to kick your arse if you try it now we have a tech sector. On the grounds that it was how we defeat all our existing demons, we built our jaeger out of a distillery."
