My handsome son with his long-time companion, Axel. My son was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 7. He has Asperger's Syndrome. He also suffers occasionally from ticks stemming from Tourette's syndrome. Sometimes are better than others. He also suffers from anxiety and panic attacks. He is 21-years-old and soon to be 22. He still can't drive, and depends on me for a lot of things. He can tell you what happened in 1827, but he can't tell you the present day or even do such simple stuff as tie his own shoelaces. He is very intelligent, but more in a book way. It has been very interesting to see how Asperger's affects his life on a daily basis. Sometimes it's hard, sometimes it's a little easier, however, every day brings on a new and different challenge. He is a great kid though and is very loving and kind and there isn't anything he wouldn't do for anybody. His dog, Axel, suffers from anxiety as well. They help each other out through difficult situations at times. I'm glad that his dog can be there to help out. Axel is certainly a therapeutic dog and gives my son lots of relief. #asperges #autism #autismawareness #anxiety #socialanxiety #everyday #friday #life #kids #love

🎵I'd rather pretend I'm something better than these broken parts.🎵 Some days my mental health is easier to deal with, and other days I just lay around wondering why I just don't feel anything. On those days, I try to look back at old pictures and remember what used to make me happy.

May being #mentalhealthmonth, here's two of the ways I take care of my mental health:
1. 太极拳, Tàijíquán or most commonly tai chi.

2. Arts & Crafts: papercrafting, drawing, sketching, painting, doing calligraphy.
I love Chinese calligraphy for the same reason I love internal martial arts. They both lead to a state of mental calm and clarity through the focusing of the mind in the movements, the forms. I studied Tàijíquán in my mid 20's. My master's master having learned it growing up in Taoist monastery. I had missed it dearly and finally I started training again two weeks ago. As it turns out, being referred to a seniors centre is not too bad after all. Both the Language Speech pathologist and my case worker from CCAC independently referred me to a centre called Life After Fifty and it so happens one of the programs they offer is tai chi for seniors! I lucked out. It is already doing wonders for both my mental health and the chronic pain. The fatigue is worse but I can cope with that when my mental health is good. And look! It inspired me to grab my pens and brushes again! I am particularly proud of the person practicing Taichi against the sunny background 😊

I’m going to have dreams about this salad! 😍 Fresh mix of greens and herbs from my garden tossed with apples, maple cider vinaigrette, and lemon pepper chicken that my husband smoked for 6 hours. I ate it all and don’t even feel a little bad about it. 🧜🏻‍♀️💜
