Zero minutes

I was able to transit from bed to shower, dress and re-apply cream and band-aid to my face wound without tearing at it.And that was with the sticking a bag on my lower left leg to protect a healing incision. That's a first for a couple of days; waking without playing. It's my one job and so far I'm holding.Now that's a life contraction: stay home and don't hurt yourself. 

Lano and Woodley

We saw their second ever show of their reunion tour, "Fly".As I was carefully climbing the steps into the theatre I had the opening credits song from their TV series in my head and I started to softly sing it. Then I noticed another person doing it too, only louder, with more confidence. I laughed and said I was doing the same.It's a good opening credits song; but it will earworm you.

Five minutes

I faltered again on waking, tore off the band-aid and had at the face scar. But it was just five minutes instead of ten and I fixed it by having a shower. That's harder than it sounds as I have to put a plastic bag on my left leg to protect a wound site. Because I have  womb-wobbled body I can't bend like a normal and braced myself in a doorway as I attempted to stretch a rubber band with my fingers as wide as it could go to get it over the toes then up the leg.

Happy face plastic slinky

It's purple with a happy face on it. If I play with that, entwine the slinky around my fingers, I am less likely to gouge a hole in my face.It does seem an unusual ability for a happy faced slinky to have but so far it's me with the slinky instead of me with the face peeling.Toys; dual use technology for OCPD.

PTSD and normal noises

March 3, 2018 - 11:43 -- Admin

We live in a world of noise. In a house the loudest noise is a door slam.No one was doing intentionally, but each time a door closed of its own accord through kinetic energy instead of being shut quietly my upside-down brain went "RAAAAAGH!"So I've taken Valium and have ear protection on. I will not go into the city as normal for a Saturday; I will stay home.The genesis is the horror I had to go through then suffer deflation at the result.

Legs tingled with fear

March 2, 2018 - 13:30 -- Admin

I had to collect data and it's not available. As I refreshed I hoped it wouldn't be there.And it wasn't.Before it happened my legs were shot through with panic tingle. It's an odd combination, fear-based mild bodily sensation in the lower limbs. I didn't want to do it and now I don't have to; yet. Hooray for the break but boo for the leg scare.Stupid work injury to an already wonky body and mind.
