WHAT DOES MY MIND AND BODY NEED TO BE OKAY?

Updated: Aug 13, 2019




I knew mental torment

I knew insanity

I knew terror

I knew the desire to die

I knew moments of screaming madness

I knew addiction

I knew inner dying

I knew there was something more to me

My mind is brilliant

My child showed me this

My mind is tricky

Like my child's

Its super sensitive

It's a super thinking machine

A crazy good creative beast

When it's over loaded

I don't load it up with;

people

places

things

food

no food

spending

alcohol

drugs

pills

social media (engagement)

romance

love drugging

or over sleeping


...


I simply become present and ask

What does my mind need to be ok?

Usually doing the next best thing

Or pause

Or breathe

What can I,

SEE?

TOUCH?

FEEL?

SMELL?

TASTE?

This is ok ... how I am right now

It's just my tricky mind

Doing tricky things

And doing TOO MUCH of something

So l slow it down

And get back to BEING

ACKNOWLEDGMENT

TRADITIONAL OWNERS

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and live and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.

OUR AUTISTIC/NEURODIVERGENT CULTURE

​We acknowledge our LBGTIQ2KA+kin autistic/neurodivergent humans.

 

We use identity-first language, "I am autistic", opposed to "I'm a person with autism", reflecting Autism at the core of our identity, that Autism is a Spectrum, a part of neurodivergence and not a disorder. We radically embrace and celebrate neurodivergence.

 

Authoritarian and conforming learning and approaches such as ABA or Applied Behaviour Analysis, treatment or cures, ableism or functioning labels are harmful to both FAN and their child neurodivergent neurologies.

 

AFFILIATED DISCLAIMER

 

ROARHEART™ makes no recommendations nor has any opinions about or is responsible for the content or deficit language of neurodivergence on sites and links that are external to ROARHEART™. The language that describes neurodivergent neurologies and life experiences as disordered, defective or that to be "fixed, changed and cured" is offensive and harmful to FAN and their child.

It is strongly recommended that medical, psychiatric and other therapeutic advice or treatment can only be given by suitably trained and accredited professionals. ROARHEART™ is not a substitute either inferred or directly to replace any form of treatment participants are currently engaged in. We further suggest that prior to making any changes to current treatment participants discuss this with the practitioner that prescribed the treatment or at least get a second opinion from a suitably qualified and accredited clinician. We cannot do this we are not qualified.
