Well it was a very hectic day yesterday at work. I was not feeling quite right (see yesterday’s blog entitled Sleep) so I guessed the day would be a challenge. Little did I know that my regular partner in crime was also not feeling her best. So we were both going to have a challenging time of it.
I must point out that my colleague is one of the best members of staff to have in your corner when it stupidly busy. She is quick, resourceful, witty and very clever. We work together like a well-oiled machine. I can rely on her totally, and like to think she can rely on me.
What I’m trying to say in a round about way, is that I realise I need friends. My colleague is a friend, and makes me laugh, smile and also realise that at times NTs do these things and not just us Aspies. My friend has really taken the time to get to know me and to make me feel like less of an outsider (like all the other staff) and more like a real person. There are times when I wish I could say “thank you” for this to her, but I’m guessing she knows. Plus it could make things weird, and I don’t want to do that at all. I really struggle with knowing what is acceptable and what isn’t in this situation. I don’t want to give anyone the wrong idea!
I hope you all find friends like mine in your journey through this life. Stay true to yourself, and….
Stay safe X
