It‘s taken me almost a year to read this book, but I am so glad I have. I started at the beginning of the year when my grandpa was diagnosed with cancer. And it kind of just sat on the shelf a long time. If you‘re looking for a book that‘s wonderfully written and not at all transphobic this might be a good one for you.

Today I adulted and helped a friend give a presentation on how to help actually autistic adults as a support worker. I have never done public speaking, let alone speaking about things so raw to myself. But I managed to talk for about twenty minutes on what it is like to be an actually autistic adult and what we need from those we employ to support us. This was my treat to me for managing amazingly today! Bring on study next year. I have this!

TheKidUpstairs Congrats!! 6d
Darklunarose @TheKidUpstairs ❤️❤️❤️ 6d
Liatrek Awesome! My nephew has Autism and just turned 15. It‘s nice to read something like this😊 Thank you for sharing. 6d

Darklunarose @Liatrek you‘re welcome. As a family I have three autistic kids (15,17 and 20) and my husband was diagnosed a few weeks ago. Myself last year. I‘m hoping to maybe do some more advocacy now I know I‘m not going to die of fear. 6d
ruskigurl16 Thank you for speaking out like you did. Autism is a difficult diagnosis, even if you are high functioning (like myself) and the community would benefit from positive advocates! 😁❤️ 6d
Darklunarose @ruskigurl16 it sure is a hard world, and a lot of issues come from the way the nuerotypical world treats us. I am level 2 to three autistic as are my kids and hubby. The world can be cruel. If we help just one adult out there....then it‘s worth it. And that‘s how you start...by changing one mind, or how one person treats us...and hopefully it snowballs! 5d

Morning littens . These clouds are such a welcome sight! Hoping things cool off a lot today. I was up at 5am as the smoke from the fires in the country came into the house and freaked me out a lot. We are not near the bush but smoke travels. There were so many fires here yesterday and at least two houses lost. Hoping dearly we don‘t get another day like that for a while, but it‘s going to be a long and dangerous summer.

My god! That‘s today‘s weather. They are talking a record breaking heat day here is SA. The hottest we have had in November here is 43. Fire conditions severe in town, catastrophic in several areas. Today‘s a scary day for SA. A lot of the country is already burning 😞

DGRachel Stay safe! So scary. 😭 3w

Day two of almost no sleep and a lot of pain. Normally it‘s the cold that causes me so much pain but it seems as the nights warm I can not sleep as fibro is kicking my tush. Starting today with some quiet reading, then I did promise to make cookies with the youngest today.

ShyBookOwl I hope the bookish relaxation brings you some relief, however temporary 💜 3w
Darklunarose @ShyBookOwl thankyou. Me too! I have cancelled all plans outside the house today. My kids normally go to equine therapy on Tuesday, but ones too sore (she was playing chase with a friends kiddo on the weekend and fell twice...she is 20, he is gonna win that game hands down) and I‘m too tired! But cookies should get made! Later! 3w
Eggbeater I have joint problems too. I sympathize. I hope the pain eases up soon. 💕 3w

I hate bailing but my god.....so abelistic! So horrible! This author is clueless on medical issues. I need a good INTERSECTIONAL feminist book....this is not intersectional at all.

Why oh why do I get the feeling there is some serious abelism going on in here 🤦🏼‍♀️ why can‘t I find a good book that does not make light of people with serious medical issues...herbs ain‘t gonna do it for serious medical stuff y‘all. Smh. I need a database so I can rule out homophobia, transphobia, racism, and in this case abelism from books BEFORE I spend a sweet fortune on them.

Yeah this is a huge NOPE from me. I tired I really did but there is no way this book was going to be finished, it really was a waste of $40. Bad medical advice, transphobic in parts and just too far in the clouds. Save yourself money. If you‘re desperate to read it borrow it don‘t buy it.

Nevermore88 What a waste!. Can you give examples from the book of things you mentioned above? 4mo
Nevermore88 Never mind I saw your other post! Lol 4mo
Darklunarose @Nevermore88 the post under this hilights some of the bad medical advice..... the oage in the chapter on vishuddah that places women as nothing more then a womb or womb-an as she puts it, is bioessentialism and excludes transwomen. I just finished showing a trans loved one that oage and they were cringing and in agreement that this book excludes any woman without a uterus. 4mo

Darklunarose @Nevermore88 it‘s all good! I class myself as an intersectional feminist. Trans issues are very close to my heart as a loved one is trans. I get fried up about it! 4mo
Nevermore88 I totally understand chica. I have gays, trans friends and family close to my heart as well. But yes I read your comment and your other post and this book is caca 💩. 4mo

Ok, this is where I gave up on this series. I had loved it till this book but I didn‘t even make it half way through this one. I can‘t even put my finger on what didn‘t click for me!

annahenke This looks terrible. Haha. But the guy on the cover looks kind of like a constipated four from the divergent movie 6mo
Darklunarose @annahenke I shouldn‘t laugh but I am! I love urban fantasy and PNR...but this series didn‘t do it for me! 6mo

Darklunarose @Crazeedi 6 is wonderful! We had 5 two years ago. We got this little girl Adele when we knew Cleopatra wasn‘t going to be with us long. And she brought Cleo so much joy too. Our Celestial and Alsace love to sit with us but a rest huge and don‘t fit on laps. Hermione has always been nervy. She loves oats but no pick ups. 6mo
Crazeedi @Darklunarose I ❤❤ your fur babies names! I've been wanting to add 1 or 2 more to my home, but my Spuddie and Rosie are 15 years old and I worry little pipsqueaks would be too much for them. So I'm just loving them for as long as I have them😻😻 6mo
Crazeedi @Darklunarose I miss all my kitties who passed over the rainbow bridge, they all brought me so much joy, all so different and special 😿 6mo
Darklunarose @Crazeedi at that age I would assume serious Harris,ent could happen from the tiny tiny kitteh committee! We are the same. Each and every one is different and we love them all. 6mo

Thankyou all so much for your condolences and kindness. I‘m so touched by everyone ❤️

Today I‘m finally able to sit and rest and start what is going to be a long run of self care. I think I need it. I have been pushing my fibro aside for weeks now. So today it‘s me, my book, hot camomile tea, junk food and the rain pouring on the tin roof mirroring my inner landscape. Unfortunate my baby girl cat has deserted me! I think she is cuddled out!

I‘m so sorry I have been MIA recently. We have been going through a hard time in our family. My grandpa, my rock, was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer this year and the last two weeks saw him decline steeply. I have been spending countless hours with him in hospital, holding his hand, stroking his face. This morning between 1 and 3 he crossed the bridge between this world and the next. He is at peace now and isn‘t in pain.
