Lavender – Its a Sensory thing

Purple is my favorite colour, have I ever told you that, it is one of the colours that have a calming effect on me. I have a purple Journal, which was intentional as I use the colour purple to help reduce my anxiety. It’s only in the last few months that I have realised thatContinue reading “Lavender – Its a Sensory thing”

Experiencing Burnout — My Upside Down Life

How do you know the difference between Autistic Burnout and Mental Health Burnout?

Add to that the Cat snoring under my bed, which you would think would be quite annoying but it actuallyContinue reading “Autumn Rain”

Creating Your Own Peace
