feeling your way down the stairs by touch, clinging to the railing, to find the amazon box by the building's mailboxes that has your new eyes in it keyed to your dna, shipped in a cooler, and with any luck they remembered to include the installation plunger this time

I need a better way to easy myself back into 'normal' after Shabbat.

Diving right into the deep end of social media after 24 hours away (bc need to feel connected with ohter people) is NOT good for my mental health.

@jessmahler Thank you! I love the richness of ASL storytelling. This story in particular made me lose my shit, it's terrific: youtube.com/watch?v=Hka9gwgCy6

For other folks learning (including my peeps) --
Rocky mountain School for the Deaf has several awesome playlists on youtube of teachers telling stories from popular kids books.

Good practice, and VERY fun to watch!

Shabbat is over and I'm easy back into 'normal' time. I was able to do a better observance than usual.

I do hope that one day I will in a place, mentally, physically, socially, where I can actually live up to my ideal standards of observance.

Until then, like the farmer in the Baal Shem's story, I trust God to make something beautiful out of my Aleph-Bet.

It’s another opportunity to reflect how awesome you are and how far you’ve come.

Embrace that’s shit. With both hands.

Turns out #ActuallyAutistic people have poor interoception, people with poor interoception tend to be more anxious, and it shows connections between poor interoception and #alexithymia!
