E boa sorte!
Nosso corpo se move por causa dela: a coordenação motora. E o desenvolvimento dessa capacidade, da velocidade e agilidade de resposta, começa desde o início da nossa vida. 🤸 Mas como ajudar os pequenos a aprimorar ainda mais isso? A @kevilynterapeutaocupacional vai falar um pouquinho disso pra vocês hoje! 🔎
When I felt a little stomach ache today, instead of wishing it away I rubbed it and said that it was welcome and that I was going to be okay. When I felt uncomfortable in social situations I reminded myself I have gotten through much worse and that I was going to be okay. When I felt sad I said it was okay to feel this way because there will be a contrast soon enough. Throughout the day I kept checking in. How am I feeling right now? I picked a word that was relevant. Prioritising our mental health can be so hard when it feels like it won’t get any better. Sometimes the depression, the anxiety or whatever you are experiencing has its own voice that tells us that doing anything is pointless and we will never be okay again. Hug and squeeze that voice. It’s the scared vulnerable child-like part of you that needs your love more than anything. Are you going to abuse it or are you going to help it to feel secure? Also for the fellow witches out there, this kindness is necessary for your craft.
Entonces respiré,desaparecí aquel nudo,me llené de valor y le dije: Las personas con autismo,con asperger, así como tú, así como yo,somos diferentes porque cuando Dios nos creó hizo un molde distinto al de todos los demás,y nos concibió con sentimientos y pensamientos maravillosos!
Si mami,me dijo.
Así que cuando alguien te pregunte,ya sabes que debes responder.
Me abrazó, me besó y me dijo: Te amo mamá!💓💓💓 No lo podía creer! por fin pude hacerlo! Después de tantos intentos,sentí que lo entendió y no huyó como otras veces lo hacía,cuando le preguntaba y me respondía con los ojos nublados: No quiero hablar de eso! 🥺
Sensory overload 😩😤😖😣🥵 What do you do to avoid sensory overload?
All of my senses are hypersensitive so I feel like I am *always* on the borderline of overload. I have a young son at home who is very active and loud, so that is probably why. It is even harder to manage when it’s hot outside. We are approaching the summer months and I am really not looking forward to that! 🥵
Sometimes people touch me when they see me in distress, but that only makes it worse. When I’m overloaded, a gentle touch from a loved one can feel like spiders crawling all over me. It is the most uncomfortable feeling on my skin & I feel the need to escape. My brain goes into fight or flight, and I feel like I have no control at that point. I am working on recognizing when my brain is becoming overloaded, and removing myself from the situation before I reach full blown meltdown. When I was a young child I had meltdowns daily, especially after school or after social gatherings. I still have them but not nearly as much because I am in control my environment (to an extent.). Low lighting, soothing color on the walls, cozy clothes and blankets, etc.
Confieso... Confieso que lo más difícil de ser autista es tener conciencia de serlo,aceptarlo y reconocerlo.
Cuando descubrimos en realidad quienes somos,sólo tenemos dos alternativas asustarnos o sorprendernos.
El autismo me ha enseñado durante toda mi vida, a ver y analizar el mundo de otra manera.Me ha llevado a marcar la diferencia ya sea por ocurrencias,expresiones fuera de lugar,reacciones poco comunes y un enorme carisma.
Aún se me dificulta entender algunos parámetros conductuales,comprender por qué las personas actúan como lo hacen y practicar ciertas normas de convivencia.
Trabajo diariamente en la asertividad,me esfuerzo por no tener espectativas de nada ni de nadie para permitir sorprenderme y disfrutar de esos pequeños momentos.A veces,me aislo motivada por mi auto descubrimiento,no siento la necesidad ni de ser aceptada ni de ser amada,sólo respetada,no por lo que tengo,ni por las consagraciones o destrezas que poseo,si no por quien soy en realidad...por mi esencia y calidez humana.
Me rehuso a demostrar,aparentar o hacer creer algo que no soy.Me rehuso totalmente a pretender imponerme sobre otros como una dictadura.
Detesto las impocisiones y obligaciones,por eso termino procrastinando las cosas.
Cuando decido dar,ayudar y apoyar a alguien lo hago con toda conciencia y con todo mi corazón.Así como también cuando digo algo: Créeme lo estoy diciendo literalmente como es y como lo estoy sintiendo en ese momento.
Hoy...después de varios años y pocos meses de intentarlo,por primera vez le pregunté a mi pequeño aspie si él sabía ¿Qué era el autismo?,a lo cual respondió: No se que es,mami que es el autismo?!
Y se me hizo un nudo enormeee en la garganta...en mi mente pensé: Es un transtorno neurológico, hereditario,donde el cerebro trabaja diferente.Sabía que no podía decirle eso,debía explicárselo de una forma fácil de entender para él.
Entonces respiré,desaparecí el aquel nudo,me llené de valor y le dije: Las personas con autismo,con asperger,así ...(CONTINUARÁ) #tea#autismo#asperger#transtornoespectroautismo#aspie#feefyire#escritos#escritosfeefyire#pensamientos#pensamientosfeefyire#javiervalerry#mijavi
Jojo asked me, “whatcha doing?” I tell him I’m going through my DMs so I can have an idea of how long I’ll take answering them later tonight.
He says, “ok. People love you?” I tell him I don’t know about ‘love’ but I think some of y’all like me a lot, enough to follow along my journey and are pretty engaged.
He asks to see my page. I show him. I say, “see? this many ppl like me enough to follow my weird behind.” He had the audacity to look at me with his daddy’s face, which is another sign of disrespect as I’m the one who did all the work to bring life to this child and he has his dad’s face, but I digress.
He says, “you alright, but you ain’t nobody major.” Well...damn.
Quando tenho que fazer algo que não é um assunto que me interessa não consigo prestar atenção ou me “importar” com esse assunto. Agora quando falam do meu hiperfoco, meu foco se aguça 100%
Em algumas aulas na minha escola, eu não conseguia prestar atenção ou me interessar pela matéria, porém uma professora que estava dando aula de filosofia fez uma comparação envolvendo star wars e isso foi suficiente para meu foco ir para o que ela estava dizendo e assim entender a matéria. O que eu quero dizer com isso é: O hiperfoco pode ajudar em outras áreas também, nós podemos nos interessar por outras coisas se algo nos chamar atenção (nosso hiperfoco). É uma ótima opção de ensino.🌈🧠 #autismo #aspie
5 years ago on this day, May 27th 2015, I was told something that would change my life forever. After questioning myself whether I was autistic hit me so much in high school, I have finally come to the truth that I was told by my family I was not autistic, BUT I still had something. That something turned out to be the fact that I had asperger syndrome. Right when I knew, it would change my life FOREVER! I remember I wanted to keep it closed doors about it because I thought if someone knew, I would be discriminated for it to the point of not having any friends at school. I’ve always thought I was bullied and betrayed so much for being aspergic when really it isn’t and it’s hard for everyone to find where they fit in. I didn’t want anyone to know about it. It wasn’t until last year where I was inspired to open up about it since I realized there are many people on the spectrum who shown so much success in their life that being autistic didn’t hold them back. That’s when I realize it’s okay to be different and we all have our own strengths and weaknesses. God has made us unique in our own special ways. If you have seen my autism awareness day post, you already know the details. The reason why people are so mean is that they just don’t have enough knowledge of people on the spectrum and resort to scapegoating them rather than understanding. Been through so much of that coming to realizing it lols. Anyways, bottom line, you are all amazing no matter what you are born with and always be proud for the countless accomplishments you have done in your life. Best of all, it doesn’t hold you back like ever. Not a disability but more of a dis”hidden” ability we are all born with.
For this week, second one in the series is "My Name Is Khan" released in 2011.The movie starred Shahrukh Khan as the protagonist who portrays a character of a man having 'Asperger's Syndrome'. Asperger's Syndrome is a part of a broader category called Autism Spectrum disorders ~ @mansisolani
This movie shows the struggles of the protagonist with a behavioral disorder in a beautiful and elegant manner.
My autie insight is something that I’ve also mentioned in my blog and has to do with being social and overall communication. It is often assumed that guys with autism are really bad at communicating and don’t want to be social. I’ve discovered over the last couple of years that I really enjoy being social and talking actually help me calm down when I feel bad. But also because I’m trying so hard i get the feeling that I communicate more and better then the neurotypical.
my skin is made of flower petals and warm sand⠀
my ears overhear to the distant loud noises⠀
my eyes are blind because of the midnight glows ⠀
so just let the tears fall down over my face ⠀
because my gentle brain can’t take it too much⠀
and sometimes, being delicate is just knowing the same suffering⠀
— sensory overload ⠀
// this is about sensory processing disorder, a common thing with autistic people. for me, loud noises, tight clothes and bright lights make me really uncomfortable by example and can reach a point to provoke a sensory overload. when this occurs i get really exhausted, confused and usually cry, can't breathe or my arms start to trembling. i wrote this after having one. 🍂⠀

I have so many projects I am trying to juggle. It’s easy to get overwhelmed looking at the big picture of how much there is to do. With digital art, it’s nice to be able to actually zoom into one little area with a few clicks. The smaller task in front of me is much less daunting. Then hours have gone by, I remember the initial fear I had starting and I realize: wait, I’m enjoying myself, making something I can be proud of and improving my skills at the same time. But I will just say I’m glad my bed is always nearby so I can collapse onto it when I’m frustrated.
I have some new pin designs I’ve been working on that I’ll need everyone’s help voting on which ones will make it to production!

• Salicylic Acid • •
For me, having oily and spot prone skin salicylic acid is a skin saviour! There are so many products that contain a range of AHA’s & BHA’s, like a balanced diet, you will likely get the best results from ensuring you don’t overuse certain ingredients as this can cause dryness, oily ness and more aggravation to the skin ✨
Always check the skin type requirements for certain Acids and ingredients ~ learn about your skin type and find the best things for you! 💋
• ROSY •
This is my natural skin the majority of the time, I use products the help with my redness however when you have a naturally rosy complexion you can slap on all the creams in the world and still wake up one morning looking like the best tomato in the punnet 👌🏻
My current resolve to this is just pop on some @boots CYO Lip Stain and face the day like a queen ✨

• Hyaluronic acid •
Products that contain HA are great for dry skin that needs more water, HA serums such as The Ordinary HA + B5 by @deciem are a brilliant start to your skincare routine at an affordable price ✨
If your skin is feeling sad and like it needs some TLC, a Hyaluronic acid sheet mask could be just what you need, these are super affordable and make you feel like you’re visiting a salon from home 💋
Masking looks different for everyone. It’s a way for an Autistic person to appear non-autistic if they feel like they need to mask. Most of the time, you won’t know that someone is masking.
It can be extremely exhausting, which is why after heavy socializing that involves masking, an Autistic person might require alone time to recharge. This could include not answering non-essential phone calls and texts, declining an invitation to hang out with friends, doing hobbies, and doing whatever self-care is needed to prevent a meltdown.
Think of it like wearing a pair of jeans. Some people can sleep in jeans (definitely serial killers...jkjk!), but you hate wearing them! You probably wore them because they look nice, help you fit in, and are generally accepted. When you get home, the first thing you want to do is take your uncomfortable jeans off and wear some super comfy pajamas pants...or maybe no pants at all! You let out a big sigh of relief because you can finally be comfortable and dress the way YOU want. It feels nice, it feels relaxing.
You get a phone call after you’ve changed into pajamas and your friend wants to meet up. You’re already so comfortable that the thought of putting on jeans again feels a bit overwhelming. You know you CAN do it, but you just had enough of uncomfortable jeans for the day that you rather stay in for the night and be comfy.
This is the idea of masking and then needed downtime.
Not masking at all can be so amazing. When I started to give myself permission to not mask, I began to feel comfortable. I noticed my connections with people became much stronger and more genuine. I had an easier time finding my crowd. Even things like parties became more fun and less exhausting. These days I do try to embrace my weirdness, my awkwardness, and all the quirks that make me, me.
I encourage you to do the same!
When we are not acknowledging our needs, it makes it harder for others to acknowledge them.

Something I always tried to communicate through my work was non-verbal meaning. I wanted to convey those experiences and feelings for which words just don’t fit. Those things that can’t be articulated. Whilst explaining this I’m not sure that many understood. I consider myself a writer, a fairly good one, but still I don’t feel that words are capable of capturing everything. There are additional ways to express, feel, and communicate. At the time I first started to delineate those non-verbal aspects of my art before I did not yet know I was neurodivergent. I am a speaking person, I’ve always been fascinated by language, but there’s also a part of me where language is unable to function. Language doesn’t reach certain parts of me. Language fails me at times. I have always experienced mutism. During times of distress I shut down. During these non-verbal episodes my brain is so scrambled by stress that words are difficult, if not impossible to form. I can nod and gesture, but to be forced to speak during these times is incredibly painful, even just to utter one or two words. It’s like the part of my brain that connects to my mouth is out-of-order.
There’s another flip side to this non-verbal experience. There are times when positive experiences make me feel like words fall short. Words aren’t needed to describe things like connection, love, profound beauty or nature. Of course there is beautiful writing about all of those topics, but in my experience, I don’t always need or want words for them. For me certain feelings go straight from a visual/perceptual/tactile experience to emotion. Raw emotion that is vague, fluid, and abstract. Like a pinned corpse of a butterfly, you can capture it tenderly, pin it in a box, and put it behind glass. That butterfly retains all the same visual intricacy, but it’s lost the life, the movement, the air, the flutter of its wings. You can’t capture its true essence. And when you do, you alter it to the point it has become another thing altogether. However, using non-verbal communication to express non-verbal experiences- you retain the feeling. It isn’t lost in translation.

Last year, I discovered that journaling really helps me process my thoughts and emotions. Because I have Alexithymia, I often have trouble fully understanding my emotions, and I frequently struggle even more with verbally expressing them to others. Both of these things have been hard, but journaling has been helping me a lot.
When I wake up in the morning, I set a timer for 20-25 minutes, and I journal. Whatever thoughts or feelings come up, I write them down. I’m naturally an over thinker, so by doing this practice every day, I’m practicing not overthinking my thoughts and letting them flow naturally.
This practice, known as morning pages, (check out the book The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron to learn more about it) has completely changed my life. It helps be more honest and aware of my thoughts and emotions. It helps me understand myself more, which then helps me better articulate my thoughts and feelings to others. Morning pages are like a detox for my mind, and they help me deal with negative thoughts that would still be there lingering if it weren’t for the practice. .
It’s helping me be more of myself and express more of the authentic me to other people... and as I continue the practice as well as other types of journaling, it’s giving me the confidence in myself and my voice. When I journal, sometimes I feel so happy because I feel like I’m truly seeing and expressing the real me... and after years of masking, nothing brings me more happiness and freedom than that.
If you also struggle with self-expression, emotions, and stuff like that.. I can’t recommend journaling enough. It may not work the same way for you, but you never know until you try 🤗 .
Do any of you already journal? If so, do you have a favorite type of journaling or specific practice that you do? If so I’d love to hear about in the comments! ✨✨✨
Stay weird, wild, and real, .
