Hi everyone. Everything’s a bit weird and out of sorts at the moment. I just wanted to pop on and say (in the least cheesiest way possible)… I’m thinking of you all. I know that a lack or structure, routine (and just general widespread panic) is more than enough to cause sensory meltdowns and autistic burnout 🧠 This can put a strain on our wellbeing and mental health. It’s important to try (if you can) to keep communicating with your family and friends about your feelings. Change is difficult for us – no matter how big or small.
I’m waiting to hear if the company I work for are going to make us work from home 🏠 No update yet… but I’m already thinking about working out my own little daily schedule to organise my time ⏱ – and I’ve seen lots of fab people sharing great weekly planners and colour blocking out their time ✏️ Comment down below any good resources you know of!
Tomorrow is going to be my last day in the office – my work has split us into colour groups and we can occasionally come into work but in alternating groups and days / weeks over the next 3 months.
I know I am so so lucky to be able to work from home but I am so worried about all this change in routine and structure and I feel so sensory and overloaded by this.
If you have a look at my story highlight called ‘Workplace’ you’ll see I’ve struggled in my open plan office for a while, and maybe I’ll grow to love working remotely (but again this is a change and a shift and I am so rubbish with even teeny tiny changes.)
Fellow sensory and autistic people: I feel you. Right now is the weirdest most confusing time and I hope you are all doing okay – I love this little community and I know how supportive we all are of each other.
I’m going to be setting up my own little home office (I have a desk in my bedroom) if you might be interested in me documenting this head over to my Instagram and keep an eye out.
