Ok so i’ve been gone for ages. I’m on my last stage of coming off my mirtazapine (so i’m between 15mg and 0mg!!) and I have my appointment all ready at the Stein Centre (mental health centre) to pop me on something else, great news! … actually no. I don’t know if I want to go on more medication again. However after the other day, waking up at 12am and stimming for about 5 hours straight because I was very anxious over going somewhere the next day, maybe I need to?
I’ve also been thinking a little unrationally too. My head had been buzzing. All this has happened when I’ve been at home. What happens when I start getting out again to church, to youth club etc. while not on a 2nd medication, would I cope?
There is one thing that has been keeping me busy and sane … Cricut Explore Air machine! The bestest thing ever for crafting.
From all of this, me and the hubby have decided to let me work for myself, printing t-shirts, about aspergers …. I’m so excited. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to go back to working as a TA or any job. Then I got my Cricut machine and I’ve been cutting cothing vinyl and designs t-shirts.
I see lots of t-shirts telling me Aspergers is awesome but people don’t get to see the other side of Aspergers like having a meltdown because the till lady asked you if you needed a bag for your shopping (now bags aren’t free, they ask you if you need one!).
At the time its a horrendous experience but looking back its quite funny and being a deadpan person, people find my wording of experiences very funny!
SOOOOO … #AspieIssues is my current venture, its going to be a long road but i’m so excited! I’m thinking of t-shirts, canvas bags, mobile phone covers! my cover picture is an example of one of my t-shirts.
If you like the look of them or want to see more, find me on facebook using @aspieissues. My page is called Hashtag AspieIssues (they wouldn’t let me use a # symbol). I’ve only just created it tonight so bare with me!!
