So here is a TedTalk about a woman who is also a game designer, who got post concussion syndrome and turned her recovery into a game. I went into it thinking that it was probably going to be really dumb, and at the start of the video I sort of hated her voice and hated her for being so cheery (I must be PMSing because I'm really usually quite cheery myself and certainly not this full of hate hahahah)

 

Anyhow, in the end she won me over and made me smile and I think I'm going to try this absolutely ridiculous game called superbetter.


Really quite very sure I'm on the spectrum. Awaiting report back from assessment.
Recently quit Wellbutrin XL 150, taking Dexedrine spansules when I can afford it.
A little slow with social interaction- if I offend you do not hesitate to let me know, chances are I really didn't mean it.

I'm trying to think of good powerups, I really like the idea of that. The past few days I've been using hugging my dog, and going into the bathroom and taking breaks. The former one is actually really handy for me, to just have alone time breaks if I'm in a really social setting.
