Driven by extremes

I had one of those moments today we’re i felt such sheer panic that I had to do something.

I looked online to see how much I was being paid to find out that I would only be given less than £400 for the month (this doesn’t even cover my rent) and thought that was how much I was going to get every month. There was no way I could survive off that so I got the information together ready to apply for PIP (finally). Luckily, I read the actual details and I will be getting around £650 a month, which would still leave me short on my day-to-day outgoings, especially while it’s winter and being on meters so I’m paying more for gas than usual. I still need to get PIP to just to be able to afford to live each month so I got the information I needed and applied. I was still having a bit of a rush of needing to do something so I also managed to get a load of clothes washed and hung up. This doesn’t seem like a lot but I was having the kind of day were I’m useless after doing too much yesterday.

It seems I should be panicked more often if it means I get things done that I never usually do.

I decided I wanted to do something positive with my life and speak out about what it feels like to be an adult with autism.
