Lately I have been practicing skills to lead to my independence, to be more adult like. I’ve started brushing my teeth and taking a bath each day. I have started doing my own laundry. I’m also trying to tolerate being alone better. Some days I feel like I’ve made so much progress like the other morning I got up, took a bath, brushed my teeth, changed my clothes, and put in contacts. I later did some laundry and when my parents didn’t want what I wanted for lunch, I went by myself.
Yesterday was hard. I was alone most the day and bored, so I just decided to sleep. I tried a couple times to see if people could do things with me but they had plans or didn’t respond till later. I think I did okay but it makes me wonder if I move away for school if I will be able to be adult enough and be able to tolerate being alone enough. Also my sleep is really messed up, I took 2 naps yesterday and one was 4 hours. It’s ok for the current situation because I don’t have a lot to do. But if I’m going to go to school full time, like I plan to in the fall- I don’t think it’ll work.
