I have let it be known many times here on RJsCorner that I have significant Aspie traits. I have not been officially diagnosed, nor do I care to be, so I don’t call myself an Aspie. If you want to know more about this condition, at least from my personal perspective click here.
I had an Aspie type meltdown about three weeks ago that scared me. I have had a few more since then so I kinda get the reason for them. If you care to read about my first meltdown click here to see that post.

I guess she took the liar-in-chief’s words that he has now been conquered the virus and everything can get back to normal. How naive can some people be?
I am anxious about many things now, and I am quite irritable, especially when I am away from the homestead during these times. These panic attacks and outbursts scare me. Will they get worse when the second wave of the virus likely hits? I don’t know.
