Me & Spring Don't Get Along
Perhaps it's that my body is busy right now fighting off some viruses that are around me or perhaps it's the time of year.
This is when, what we call, my "Spring Autism" starts to show itself. The transition from the quiet, hibernation of winter to the busy and loud of summer can be difficult for me to process. My brain feels overwhelmed, flooded by all the new sounds and sights and options and action and movement.
I can go into a sort of shut down mode in response to it all. A deer in headlights sort of thing happens to me.
Spring also throws me off physically as my body hates the combination of cold and wet. My digestion, my joints, my trigger points...
Is there a season with whom you are not on best of terms? How do you deal with it?
