I am maybe a little too excited about these cookie-dough-truffles.
(We made these treats last story-time, at the genius request/invention of Adam. It was such a lovely story-time!)
(Hint: Make cookie dough, melt chocolate, make things happen, freeze until hard, refrigerate.)
But guys… these are wayyy too elegant looking to be called “Wonderballz.” Really?!

man I remember this from Harriet the Spy :’)
I have no idea how to find non-ableist, non-horrible resources (or even people to talk to) about dealing with violence perpetrated by autistic family members. My brother is 15 and he hits and squeezes and it’s fucking with my head and I feel super alone because I feel like when I look for help, all I find is toxic anti-autism bullshit
or stuff that only frames it as “People who are violent are abusers” (my brother isn’t being abusive, he’s 15 and he freaks out and his brain sucks at dealing with frustration)
or stuff that says “Most autistic people are not violent, violence is not correlated with autism”
which like YEAH but also like, that’s not helpful to hear when my brother is leaving bruises on people’s arms because of unavoidable disruptions in his routine, which is violent and does have to do with him being autistic.
Seriously, I would really like to talk about/think about/read about this with people whose politics with regard to disability aren’t fucked up, but I feel like I’ve seen nothing and don’t know how to find anything.
(if you wanna signal boost, do it)
Thanks for the cheering on! I did do a great job with the shot, but then I immediately fainted in my chair, and woke up several seconds later totally confused. :/
I am still lying down and not feeling very well. Damn it.
Were you hungry or thirsty at all beforehand? That sounds scary!
