It’s the first task app that I not only use, but feel *motivated* to use. The click & color change is so satisfying when I get something done🥰
I think what I also love is how customizable it is. I made labels that are more reflective of general times in relation to when I wake up (so I don’t feel shamed for not being an early morning person).
Was able to avoid color schemes I’m avoidant of, & nothing anxiety-inducing.
For me, it’s my task unicorn. I’ve been looking for the right one for ages! Only for repeating daily/weekly/monthly tasks tho. Still working on finding the right calendar/unique task-type app.
Recommendations? I’m trying TickTick, but mainly bc I can have my SD as wallpaper😅
1 - Instacart order
2 - People that made the initial delivery with 12 errors
3 - Phone calls to Instacart (and 3 deliveries) to right things
4 - Total shoppers that were assigned to fixing the order over the course of the day
5 - Hours of waiting
And a partridge in a pear tree
Addendum: Second guy that oddly had me approve 3 replacements (only to refund 2, against my wishes) then left these outside of my house, unbagged, in the rain. Didn’t ring the bell, send a message, nothing.
I have a giant wheelchair ramp, & the door opens outwards. Seriously??
I tried this one (half) day, via chair. I was in a pain flare for 2 weeks.
But despite the pain & lack of accessibility, I did my few orders nicely. I’d never have made *12 mistakes,* or left stuff for someone like this, against accessibility instructions, in the rain🤷🏻♀️ Sheesh
Anyone else think that a big issue with #parents thinking that food is “curing #autism” is the fact that it’s actually treating highly co-morbid #MCAS, and that people are just mistaking the behavioral impact on #MCAS as “an autism thing?”
- It’s thought that 1 in 10 with #autism have #MCAS
- MCAS triggers can affect you systemically, & the chemical effects on your body cross the blood-brain barrier.
- Removing foods that have these chemical effects = less stress on the body, & the brain 1
- Less stress on the body & 🧠 (as this involves neurochemistry) causes less distress in general, so you see less of the signs of stress in that #autistic individual. You’re not “curing their autism.” 2
So, only interested in #MBTI labels in terms of what they can help us learn about ourselves & others. (I can’t stand how they’re used in things like hiring decisions, some people having self-limiting beliefs, etc.)
That being said, who has helpful tips for an #INFP personality?
Particularly, I actually think I’d love tips on breaking past certain ways of operating, as an #INFP
I’m not going to be one of those that “comes up with the ideas, & passes them off to someone w/more power.” I have a history of seeing those w/power not listening to common sense
I think that the dreamers can be leaders. SHOULD be leaders.
People having positions of power only because they like the *feeling* of power - or bc they’re naturally charismatic, so people gravitate towards following them - it’s something that’s bothered me for a while.
Creating such a program would not only help to employ more #neurodiverse people, but it would also *allow for better services for ND students & patients,* because they’d have a better chance of being understood.
Positive from a negative:
If you’re living #NEISvoid, #cfsme, or #LongCOVID life - and you have boty anxiety and a smart dog, #ServiceDog, #ESA, or #SDiT, here’s something that you can actually use as a way to benefit from a flare🙂
When I was stuck in bed with hardcore #LongCOVID flares, my SD could scent that I was sick, and would stay nearby...usually on the bed.
I’d luckily already had an “in case of bad days” setup to care for her, but I was often so sick I was only getting out of bed for the bathroom.
Being largely #poodle/just smart in general, she got used to the idea that “mom gets up, it means that she’s going to the bathroom.” And she would get up and go, often ahead of me, if not with me.
I DEFINITELY realized that this was a learning opportunity🙂
#Disabled autonomy is more important than than many abled ppl realize.
So many things in our lives are based on the assumption that we “have someone to help us,” simply bc systems are falling short. It’s #ableist, & forces us to rely on others. We may not HAVE others available.
People that have issues with #manipulation and #gaslighting, particularly my #ActuallyAutistic/ND peeps:
I HIGHLY recommend researching Game Theory. The free trial on The Great Courses is definitely worth it. If anyone can recommend good books/audiobooks, please mention below.
A big issue that I know I personally faced was being unaware of the idea that *not everyone uses the same type of points systems.*
Not being aware of this can make us extremely vulnerable to various abuses.
If your point system is for things like “personal freedom, honesty, integrity, helping others”...you can have a lot of issues if you encounter someone with a harmful point system of things like “control, manipulation, seeing others suffer.”
#NEISvoid, recently found out that Singulair is available in generic form...I had the familiar “it helps but I’m having untenable reactions to fillers” w/the original. Has anyone had issues with the original and found success w/a generic?
This was years ago, before #MCAS set in (especially hardcore). But I still had an issue with fillers.
I need to look up the brand/possible generics, but I REALLY wish I knew what the problematic filler was. Even if Singulair was a different brand, I often react to TEVA meds🧐
I wonder if they (TEVA) often contain something that has a high incidence of reactivity? I’ve seen several people with a TEVA issue. I’d really love to get to the root of it. #ChronicIllness#Mystery🧐
Ok, I’m TIGHT, y’all. This is why I have less and less patience for FB nonsense.
Saw a meme about how people should be FORCED to get the vaccine.
Asked if they ever heard of MCAS, CVID, or tons of other rare diseases, and sent them this. cnn.com/2015/05/01/hea…
Meanwhile, the whole thread was them *complaining they wanted vacations.*
While #disabled people have the fear EXISTING, & about being stuffed back in our homes. Some of us have anaphylaxis to vaccines, &/or studies haven’t been done on how it affects our (auto)immune conditions
**Having a rare disease, a condition that causes anaphylaxis, an immune disorder, or #longCovid doesn’t make you an anti-vaxxer for wanting to wait for studies on the impact of the vaccine on your condition, or to find out what the fillers are, to get the right shot.**
This is an #autistic#teacher saying “I warned that a student would escape, bc I could see people were ignoring him for being hard to manage at times. No one listened to me, & he DID escape - NEARLY A FULL CITY AVENUE AWAY.”
Frustrated. I’m chomping at the bit to get started w/certain things, but before I wrote up my fundraiser, I made a last-ditch effort to make money for the meds I need myself, by doing an Instacart shift. That was Sunday. I made less than $10/hour, & I’ve been in bed since.
Many nondisabled ppl don’t understand “bedbound” isn’t necessarily what they THINK it is, & that people with disabilities can perform whole jobs from bed, if they’re accessible.
But this is a different type of bedbound. It’s “I can barely move, overdid it 25 on a scale of 1-10”
For certain people that have trouble with their bodies adhering to a schedule, it’s a great opportunity. But for me? My body is crushed.
