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.

    You are doing well. I’ts a hard transition.

    Do you like to read? Maybe you could set a time every day to read about something you like to learn about or just something you enjoy. I know for me that building some structure into my day is really helpful.

    […] anyways, plus all the other things I need to catch up on.  This is like the stuff talked about in adulting.  Today was suppose to be filled with grandiose plans, plans I made last week but told no one of. […]
