Right now I am feeling incredibly anxious. What is the source of my anxiety: lack of sleep from a son entering my twin bed (co-sleep in son’s room but in different beds) around midnight through seven this morning; worry about my father’s surgery tomorrow; signing up for a Mother’s Night Out when I get socially awkward around a group of people; volunteering for the Autism Education Summit when I am now worried it may be too biomedical for me; spending money on a new dining room set; the combination of all those listed above?
I know it is silly to worry about such menial things (barring the surgery), but that is part of my diagnosis and one aspect of my personality that I am working on being more even keel.
Now, I am feeling quite anxious because I have nothing to write about…perhaps tomorrow my thoughts will not be as scattered. Stay tuned!

Leah, Stay strong. There is nothing you can’t accomplish! Hope your father’s surgery went well. I didn’t realize he was having surgery. First rule. Take care of yourself first! You can’t help anyone else if you are not taking care of yourself! It is perfectly alright to be selfish about it. Love you, Aunt Nancy
