How to look put together when sick and forced to interact with other humans. 

The most important part is to wear clothes that you find comfortable, so start with choosing a pair of nice pants. Now, I’m a bit weird, and actually likes wearing jeans even when sick and that makes looking put together much easier but it isn’t a must. 

For the top; it’s most important to stay warm and cosey. I would wear a oversized sweatshirt. To make it look more stylde, tuck a part of the shirt in the pants. Believe me it makes a lot of a difference. Also if you’re wearing a belt then it’s nice to show it of.

The best and easiest way to look styled is to match the color of your shoe to your top/jacket. I like wearing a boot with room for a big warm knitted sock, since I can’t stand the feeling of walking in knitted socks I wear a pair of regular socks underneath. 

I have the great fortune of owning a pair of matching boots and jacket, those are my go to when feeling down. The most important thing is to choose a warm and comfortable jacket.  

Another tip is to make sure to take a shower before going out, especially to wash your hair. You won’t believe how much better you will feel after showering.            

Another great part of being sick is that I showed up so sporadically that I could were the same outfit for three weeks without feeling like I was repeating outfits. 

The don’ts of dressing while sick.

Don’t try to experiment, you are sick, take it easy.

Don’t wear materials that takes energy to be compatible with. I can wear corduroy, but it takes energy that I don’t have when sick. Always choose fabrics that you can stand to 100%. 

Don’t go out if you are way to sick, like I did. Also don’t care about these advices if you don’t want to. The most important part of getting dressed when sick is to dress in a way that makes you feel better. I feel better when looking put together, so this works great for me.

Why being sick sucks a lot more when you’re autistic

I just had a biology test and it didn’t go as well as I wanted, and I want to blame it all having been sick on and off for three weeks. 

Being sick isn’t good for any one, but it is extra bad if you are autistic. Being sick doesn’t just mean that I miss school, it destroys all of my routines. So beside feeling off because of having a fever I also feel off because I can’t do the things I like when I like to do them. 

For example I like sewing on Friday and Saturday nights, but when ill I can’t do that. Instead I get left with an uncomfortable feeling of incompleteness. Now take that feeling and multiply it with all the things I normally do during a day and add that to the already afulness that is having cold and you end up with what it feels like for me to be sick. 

We could also and on the stress of knowing that there is more and more schoolwork that you have to catch up on for every day that you are sick, and also knowing that you just don’t have the energy to start with it yet.

Thankfully I am now feeling a lot better, although the coughing from the bronchitis hasn’t given up. Yes, beside having a common cold I also got bronchitis, my life has been really fun the last three weeks. It was actually kind of fun the last two days when I was gone because it turns out I get really affected by coughing medicine. I have no idea what happened between 10 and 14 last Wednesday. 

The fact that I have a break next week meant that I felt comfortable writing this instead of studying, I only wish that the biology was after the break and not before it. 

Any way, there should be no reasons for me to not be posting regularly again, so my few followers, you have something to look forward to. I love being back in routine!
