Why

So tonight’s post goes back to one I wrote entitled Anxiety, depression and music. I’ve been listening to the song Why by Rascal Flatts for a lot these past few days but that’s what I do sometimes with songs I like.

The last song I use to listen to a lot that reminded me of my daughter was Just Fishin’ by Trace Adkins. My how time flies but I have confidence we’ll get back there.

Sincerely-

Anxiety and girls

Anxiety. Such a heavy word for many people, including me. Like I’ve said in the past, I think we’re all on the spectrum, I think we all have anxiety. The difference is that it manifest’s itself differently for everyone.

This article, entitled “When Girls with Autism Mask How They’re Feeling” by J.L. Dark over at The Mighty, talks about those with autism and anxiety. Now I know my daughter has anxiety, the question to me has always been, is she on the spectrum?

Fidgety

So I read this article as the parent of three kids, one who is autistic and the other two are what I believe are know as neurotypical. It’s not a word I really have ever used to describe them. Anyway, they all have one of those fidget spinners.

After reading this article, entitled “Fidget Spinners: What They Are, How They Work and Why the Controversy” by Stephanie Pappas at LiveScience, I’m beginning to wondering who they are for. Unfortunately, it seems the article shows that they’re still not sure either.

Anxiety

Tonight rather posting something on autism, I thought I would post about anxiety. With my son, it goes hand in hand but really, isn’t it something we all deal with, just to different degrees? So maybe I am writing about autism and then maybe we’re all on the spectrum?

For Kristen Scheid-Fox, it’s something that she seems to deal with from the moment she gets up to when she falls asleep. The article is entitled “When the ‘Anxiety Dam’ Breaks” and again, it over at The Mighty. Wow!

Anxiety & autism

Now I know for my son and I’m sure there are others, anxiety is something that affects his behavior. So when I read this article over at Science of Us on how humidity affects anxiety, it got me to thinking. I wonder if humidity plays a role in autism?

The article is entitled “3 Ways Humidity Exerts It’s Terrible Control Over You” by Melissa Dahl over at Science of Us via the New York Magazine. Just a little food for thought for those of you who have autism on the brain like myself.

Sleep Tight!
