    Arrow Totally drained that god I got my horses

    I had one of those days that never end.
    For awhile I have had a few strange symptoms, that have been getting worse.
    One being constantly tired, then I started to fall asleep during tasks. . .even driving.

    Today I had another visit with another doctor who took everything previously in totally objectively and we talked about my life.

    I am a full time college student, with 10+ hours of home work, I also work 30+ hours a week as a hostess because my mom has been unable to find a job all year, this has all been going on then my mom hurt her leg, my trainer and I just ended up with two, four year old stallions that aren't halter broke covered in rain rot.

    I was diagnosed with Anxiety today.

    The strangest thing is that I have all the symptoms when going down the list. The hitch is I have adult aspergers.

    So I would get the racing heart beat (had a lot of heart test done through the last 2 years but they didnt know why)

    Constantly drained, or can't sleep at all.

    Etc. Etc. However because of the aspergers I don't have the actually emotional feeling attached to it.

    My body/brain is reacting to the stress/anxiety but I continue to feel neutral/content more or less like always.

    I am going to see a 3rd (just want to be done with this) specialist now who is going to be working with me to find out what can be done to help me.

    I was told to get out and ride my horses as much as possible Dr's orders!

    Totally draining experience and so frustrating to be seeing all these doctors for all the different symptoms that turn out to all tie together to one answer but we have been trying to solve them separately.

    Even though I then had to go to work tonight I did get a nice ride in with my mare Fable <3

    Get got so many muscles to get back!





    Lol got some sass first time going into the canter she wanted to just throw herself forward and race around, we got no hind strength so I understand






    Have a good night! Thanks for reading if you did also!

    Big hugs!
    I know you're near me, so I would think some vitamin D wouldn't go amiss either.... (though I'm sure your doctors have already checked your levels). My dearest friend was just diagnosed SEVERELY deficient and has been completely exhausted for the last month or so. I decided it wouldn't hurt me to take some too....

    Looks like you had fun today!

    Yea totally, the specialist they are sending me are because I didnt just want a prescription she (the one I will be seeing) uses that as a last resort she isnt one of the "hippie" ish ones that ask you to talk to flowers lol, but she tries more natural approaches.

    I don't doubt that you are under a lot of stress and need the help of the doctor, but I have not heard of "adult aspergers". My understanding of Aspergers, (and my 21 year old son is AS) is that you are born with this. It is usually abundantly evident when you are a child that you are "different" and it becomes more clear that this "different" is autistic spectrum disorder as you get more into childhood. We had a clear diagnosis on my son at 8.

    My son has a lot of trouble wit anxiety, and it used to absolutely paralyze him. He has taken over his young life some years on medication and some off, and has consistently done better on medication. Even he see this , now.
    For medication, I mean the dreaded Prozac. I say "dreaded" becasue many people think I am taking the easy way out by "doping" him. Well, walk a mile in his shoes . . . .

    Yea I understand I have had AS my whole life but after 18 my sheet said adult aspergers as I guess you can grow out of it?

    Asperger Syndrome - Adults and Asperger Syndrome

    I guess maybe they are different/it changes or after 18 they add an adult to it lol

    I am not against medication but don't want to just jump into that.

    I don't think you grow out of it. YOu learn how to adapt. It just means that you have certain weaknesses in terms of social skills and sometimes what they call "executive skills", meaning managing your time and your day to day responsibilities and such. But those are often offset by extraordinary talents. My son is majoryly bright. His memory is phenominal for things like all the dynasties of China, every major battle fought in the WWII or for linguisttic learning. But he has trouble remembering what day is his class or when the midterm or did he change his clothes this week?

    I am not sure, I have seen people my whole life for it, I don't want you to just think I am claiming it. . . . ?

    Since it is a spectrum, there are difference between people and something can be more or less for someone else.

    I know some other AS people from a support group and some of us our more similar then others.

    I've been there with the full time student and working 30 hours a week. I couldn't handle it. Have you considered taking one less class a term? Also could you get some serving hours? You'd probably get more money an hour and need to work less.
