Lost in the wilderness

3 months on....

The real magnitude of recent events has finally hit. The last few weeks have been the most difficult. The sense of loss is real, and maintaining health has become an issue. As a result, I've had to scale back some social activities and try and keep some sensible hours, conserving energy for the things that have to be done (like work).

Now I'm coming to appreciate all that Mal did for me, and the extent of my executive function issues - something I haven't had to face as directly for almost 14 years. Somehow I'll make it, though right now, it feels more like "crash and burn"...

Finding the right person to talk to can be difficult. Counsellors do a wonderful job, but Aspergers and the associative memory that goes with it makes it difficult to apply what gets discovered in one context (the therapy session) to another context (real life), so I share memories with friends instead and try to remember the good times.
