Time is now flying! It seemed to drag for months but the other day I felt that pressure to get everything done at once that I haven’t felt in almost half a year. It was really disconcerting and uncomfortable. It was not a good feeling. I need to re-evaluate how things are going to be. I think I need a balance between doing minimal and the 100% all out I was feeling the other day.
This is the spreadsheet for my son’s college search. It has finally hit him that this is real and is freaking him out a bit. I am trying my best to get him organized this year. With his autism he struggles with Executive Organizational skills. I am working on everything this year to give him the best chance of success in college. We are working on using timers, calendars, sticky notes, and to do lists to keep things from getting forgotten and disorganized.
This is what a large part of my school year will be spent doing. We cannot volunteer at the schools or anywhere yet so that will help some. He had his first day of school and of his 6 teachers he has had four before so they know him and he knows them. The other 2 are teachers he knows from different places. His AP Comparative Government teacher was his driving instructor and his AP Literature class teacher is the librarian at the school and that is one of his favorite places to go. We have a feeling this will be a good year. Fingers crossed.
So, how are things with you? My daughter has had a bunch of anxiety after reading that the United States is in a Covid-19 spiral. Meaning that as one area begins to clear up another area will become infected and this is projected to continue as people feel safer after Covid numbers start to go down in their area so they feel better about going out, gathering in groups, or eating in restaurants and within a few months the numbers will start to rise in those areas again as the other hot spots die down. She just wants this to end. It will but it is just getting her through this time.
Anyone else dealing with anxiety?
