If you and your friend Tombie are from the same planet I *really* want to go and live there.

As do we, sweetie.

What do you use for the black background to your string art? Is it paper or fabric? Thanks! :)

Hard paper/very thin cardboard! :)

If there were a movie about your life, what's the first thing people would say when they left the theater?

"What did I just watch?"

13!
  • 13. Talk about the first time you had sex/how you imagine your first time.

    Haha, I guess someone had to ask that at some point. The first time I had sex was in a room with orange walls, Savage Garden was playing on my stereo and it was with someone I was in love with. Pretty cute the whole thing.

What do you do for for a living?

I’m learning how to function in this society, and I work (job training) with writing at a newspaper a couple hours a week.

Hi lovely, why do you think you're dysfunctional, if you don't mind me asking? You seem to have such a happy life and are positive, fun, intelligent and articulate.

Hello there ♥ 

Beep, here’s the mistake people so very often do: “You seem to have such a happy life”.

When you think about it, how much do you really know about my life? Not much I’d say.. I don’t share that much. I do share positivity as much as I can, because it’s needed in the world and it helps me aswell. That, however, doesn’t mean my life is in any way simple and full of happiness all the time (not that you said that it is, but people seem to think I’m constantly positive and happy which is far from the truth).

First off, I’m diagnosed with AD(H)D (ADD but my brain is majorly hyperactive) and high functioning autism. I was diagnosed pretty late, before that I just felt dysfunctional without really knowing why (though I was suspecting ADHD for quite some time before actually getting diagnosed). I’ve spent much of my life - mainly teenage years but it’s hard to get rid of - suffering from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, food related issues, social phobia, self harming and major performance anxiety. 

Since I got my diagnosis and finally was ready to accept some help, I’ve started treatment with an occupational therapist, counselor and now recently I’ve started low level job training.

I’m still working very hard every day not to let my brain fuck me over. Even though I feel much better now than I did a couple years ago in many ways, my brain still works the way it does. I’ve had much, much time for self analysis the last couple years which has helped me immensely with dealing with many of my issues, but it’s a life long process.

Feel free to ask more on the topic. I’m a hardcore advocate for No Shame when it comes to neurological and mental (and all kinds of) illnesses. 

(Thank you by the way for the compliments ♥) 

Edit: I do have a happy life though! Well.. Alot of the time I might not feel that I do, but I have so many wonderful people around me and deep down I know that I am one of those people for at least some people. There is every possibility for more happiness, the only obstacle is my own brain. 

.. and a bunch of crap with society and the system and what not, but that’s just details. Love is what matters.

Thrifted some frames for my string art today. :> First attempt to the left, second attempt to the right.

A short guide by skogsraw on how to climb down a small mountain.

A while back Linn found something she could climb. So she gave me her camera and started to climb. Who could possibly resist a small mountain in the middle of Stockholm? The photos I took turned out pretty great. At least I think so.  I’m no expert but it was a lot of fun. :)

And now you know how to get down if you don’t know how! The last bit is always the toughest. But if you dare to jump, you can achieve wonders!

In case you need to learn how to climb down a BIG AND DANGEROUS MOUNTAIN TOMB where are you getting this “small mountain” from… :D
