More and more I see my deficits in my day to day life that are thanks to my autism.
I don’t see things that need to happen, if I don’t explicitly think about them, or are reminded about them, and that is difficult. Like for example a small thing, like taking bread out of the freezer after a meal, so that I have thawed bread the next meal. It seems stupid, but this is something I forget to do.
You can see me as an absent-minded professor. I am thinking about other stuff the whole day long, and in my work day now, I have moments that I absolutely think about nothing, which is so relaxing. There aren’t much times that I get the chance to think about nothing, and here I get the time. This is still a trainee-period, but I wouldn’t mind being employed there and doing the job that I do now, so I can stop to think for a moment every day, and get a fresh mind while working.
But back to my deficits, I know I might zoom in onto my autistic things a little bit to much, but it has paid off, because I have created a system which overcomes some of my deficits on a day to day basis, which is planning. I will tell you more when the time is ready to do so.
