Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
Of course I have friends participating this month, and on the weekend one reached out to me. With a week left, he's a little shy of his goal. I promised I'd help him out in any way I could. Please, if you can spare a buck of two, help a bro out?
His Movember page is HERE.
Thanks for your help!
In other news, there's an awesome event happening here in Ottawa - the ChiSeries Ottawa Holiday Extravaganza!
It's honestly a great time - the ChiSeries events are always a great time - and you might just find the perfect gift for someone! Who knows?
You can find all the details of the event HERE. Do go. You won't regret it.
Lastly, but certainly not least, a friend of mine wrote a blog post about her realisation that she might just have Aspergers. She linked to this list of traits, which now has me thinking that perhaps I might be in a similar boat, if at the high functioning end. I mean, I checked off pretty much everything on this list.
I've learnt to cope/mask most of the behaviours, but I definitely see all the behaviours listed reflected in my childhood; crazy temper tantrums highest amongst them. I don't really have temper tantrums any more, but I do have emotional breakdowns every so often.
In adulthood, I do find myself easily overwhelmed in social or unfamiliar environments. I usually cope by focussing on tasks - handing out cake or drinks, for example - or finding a quiet space to rest. I am moody and very prone to bouts of depression still, so there's that.
Hmm. Oh well! I'm not about to go for a formal diagnosis. Whether I am or not, I am perfectly happy being the bizarre human that I am. I mean, I function pretty well... now. So yeah. Maybe I'm neurologically a-typical.
Welp, now that I have you all pondering if you're also my kind of weird, I'm off to paint, then write, and probably a whole lot of daydreaming as well!
