It might just be me but if my mom worked there I would be there every day for a discounted coffee drink.

@ConfusedbutADHDandLD you gotta have some sort of fall like weather I would think. Yea maybe us northerners love pumpkin a little to much.

I stopped drinking coffee on school days ( not exactly by choice ) but I still take every opportunity to drink it :sweat_smile: Why’d you try to quit?

Well specifically I tried to quit Starbucks because it’s expensive and too much sugar for me cause I’m pre diabetic.

I was being really good about it and watching everything I did cause I was hyper focused on it and lost like 40 lbs but then I changed my interests and oops back to being bad again.

Oof, it must be extra difficult when you’re neurodiverse ( quick question, what does pre-diabetic mean exactly? )

Well I was told its when your sugar level is higher then normal range but lower than diabetic range. Plus my pap on my dad’s side and my gram on my mom’s side both were diabetic so it’s in my DNA or something.

Long story, had a horrible first half of the day then somewhat better after lunch. Let’s just say I prevented a major meltdown, held on by a thread and masked my stimming at lunch cause I’m still not comfortable showing them to the people at work. Hope everyone else was great today.

I had two meltdowns, 4 flashbacks, 1 anxiety attack, and dissociated. So not really good

I’m glad as well I am really not wanting to have a complete meltdown at work.

Well currently my favorite stim is with my hands, it’s almost like I’m snapping my fingers but with less force and running my thumb over all my fingers on both or one of my hands.
