The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

What happened this week?

This week was a bit of a weird one. The first half of the week was a struggle, I didn’t feel good and I couldn’t figure out what was going on. I kept doing my daily check ins to see how I was doing, but I couldn’t figure out what was causing me to feel off. I finally realized I was struggling with sensory discomfort and it was making me feel overwhelmed and disregulated. At least knowing the cause helped a bit, I always feel better knowing what is causing me to feel bad. I couldn’t fix everything, but I did take a few steps to help with some of the sensory discomfort.

On Friday I went out for lunch with my sister and it was great to catch up and chat with her. The food was good too. It was a bit overwhelming for me, but luckily we at least found a relatively quiet spot in the restaurant we visited. Despite having fun, I was quite tired the next day.

Work wise, I got a new non-fiction blitz live. I also kept up with my emails and checked my sign up forms. I got some new formatting works in that I hope to work on next week as well as the materials for a new review opportunity.

  1. I’m glad you were able to identify and put some fixes in place for what was causing you issues. It’s not easy.

    I’m also glad to hear that your business is still going strong!

  2. It’s always a win when you can discover what needs fixing and sort it out – very empowering. And not easy to do, especially as you clearly weren’t feeling your shiny best when you worked out what was throwing you off. Go you!! Have a great week, Lola.

    I think that is so neat that you are able to work out what’s causing the struggle and get something in place to make it less now that you’ve gotten your diagnosis last year. And, yay for time with your sister.

    Have a good week, Lola!

    • The diagnosis definitely has been helpful and it’s nice in moment like these I can figure out what’s causing the struggle. It was fun having lunch with my sister.

    • I definitely prefer to know what is happening as knowing helps even if I can’t always do a lot to change it, it is still nice to be aware.

  4. It’s great how you are figuring things out to help your comfort level. My daughter is very sensitive to texture issues. Good thing for her I only liked natural fibers and always picked her really soft comfortable clothes as a child. It’s a process to understand what works best.

    • That’s neat you only like natural fiber and always picked soft comfortable clothes for your daughter, that sounds helpful for her. It’s quite the process figuring out all my sensory sensitivities and what I can change.
