Absent

Aware
That I am a bit absent
At the moment.

Trying
To deal with so many things
At once.

Feeling
Quite unwell and stressed
And anxious.

Absorbing
So much big news about
So many things.

Using
So much energy constantly
Just to cope.

Needing
To remove as much pressure
As possible.

Struggling
To deal with the newness
Of so much.

Stimming
Though not as much as
I need to.

Dealing
With yet more forms
And reports.

Worrying
About some of the outcomes
Of these forms.

Attempting
To get out of the flat
Sometimes.

Resting
As much as I can because
I need to.

Finding
Life is rather exhausting
And challenging.

Wanting
To do so much more
But waiting.

Retreating
Back into the familiar
When possible.

Observing
That I’m out of my depth
Frequently.

Noticing
That my thoughts are often
Scrambled.

Intending
Still to write informative posts
About autism.

Taking
A little more time and space
Than previously.

Replenishing
Energy and thoughts and words
For a while.
