I have really acclimated well to being stuck at home for so long. I am ready for it to be over though. I would rather live a little and get some normalcy for my mental health at this point. I have a lot of things to do, but not a lot of places to go and no variation in who I work with. I really liked having multiple people per day because each new person who came in throughout the day was almost like having a reset. I need more variation because it helps me stay regulated. I have started going to speech at the clinic which really helped break up the monotony of my day. I know I am lucky to have contact at all, so I shouldn’t complain, but it doesn’t make it any easier to accept. If I have too much time on my hands I get stir crazy, but if I have too much planned, I get exhausted. I have to find a balance and while I feel I am headed in the right direction, there are still changes I want to make myself more comfortable. COVID has not been easy on anyone, but people with special needs have been hit extra hard. Our services have been cut, we are extra stressed as a result, and solutions to those issues can only go so far. If you know someone with special needs, be patient with them, we are trying our best.
