Finished “About Me” page
One of the frustrating things about my daily living as highly functional Me is misplacing objects. As a child my mother taught me how to mentally walk through my activities so I could learn where I left an object. Of course, it was only helpful if I had access to those memories. Now, I ask internally for help locating a misplaced object. An answer may quickly come or not. When no information is forthcoming, then I have learned to just let time pass and usually the object will be discovered. But if I can’t let go of the desire or the actuality of hunting for the item, then usually it takes longer for the object to be shown to me. Since I’ve learned this, I usually don’t get upset. But the can opener is missing and I need it to prepare food. Grrrhhh!
I’m continuing to manage my acidic saliva by dissolving Xylitol mints in mouth. My tongue and buccal areas feel marginally better. As long as I consume food that I have made from scratch, then the presence of food does not stimulate very acidic saliva.
I have been experiencing heightened body memories. I really really dislike this particular sensation in my vagina. It is also painful and distracting. Also, I have experienced my ‘altered taste’ off and on this last week. I’ve experienced difficulty remembering the day of the week. This is often an indication that I am ‘losing time.’
Anxiety is high. My landlord needs access to my apartment so an insurance agent can assess the house. My current landlord lives in a different state and is the daughter of my original landlord. My original landlord unexpectedly died about 15 months ago. We’re quite aware of the disordered state of our apartment. Since 2013 we have limited energy, which has limited our abilities to properly care for ourselves and our living space. I am frustrated. I think there should be help for someone like me. If there exists help with daily living for someone like me, then I haven’t looked or asked in the those places, yet. So tomorrow we will take frequent breaks while we push ourselves beyond exhaustion to make the apartment clean and ordered to meet basic expectations.
