The drugs DO work, actually

So I had to go to the GP this week and utter those immortal words, ‘Ummm…yeah, well…er no, I’m not doing so good, actually.’ And my GP said ‘Aah well it happens, let’s see what we can do for you’ and now I’m on ‘proper’ meds again for the first time in about five years. Backstory – I have a chronic anxiety disorder, was recently diagnosed with Aspergers and am also still recovering from a horse riding accident which has made me walk a bit wonky and gives me dizzy spells. Also there had been a shitload of crap...

The Joy of Sex (toys)

  *** I’m in The Sun today, talking about why sex toys are BRILLIANT. This being the tabloid press they’ve left out quite a bit of pertinent info – and also an absolutely brilliant pic of me in a bed tent under my duvet, waggling a Doxy around my ears – but whatever you think of the paper itself, the fact that this sort of thing is now being discussed openly is just awesome. When I was growing up, most women didn’t admit to even wanking, let alone buying and using vibrators. This was probably a huge amount to...

Things I have learned as an autistic adult

*** Although I’ve only recently been formally diagnosed with autism (Asperger Syndrome to be precise, although I generally just say ‘autistic’), I’ve always felt out of kilter with the world and have developed my own ways of coping with life. You know, those little things that mean you manage to not kill the Stupids – the stuff that helps you to not go stark staring bonkers under the strain of simply Existing. Especially the one about the forks. *** People don’t always say what they mean And quite often they don’t mean what they say, either. I decided long ago...

Seeing things in black and white

*** Funny isn’t it – however much you ‘know’ something in your head, it often doesn’t seem real until it’s written down in black and white. Confirmed by someone else, so that you know you weren’t imagining it after all. Today I was formally diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. This won’t come as a surprise to many people who know me in person, but actually it was a bit of a surprise to me. I have had 46 years of being told I’m fine, I just need to get organised, get my shit together, just stop worrying, there’s nothing wrong. After...

Science is sexy

Oh my fucking god, science actually gives me the horn. We visited Jodrell Bank last week and I pretty much pissed my pants with excitement at the sheer awesomeness of the place – I’m sure Freud would have had plenty to say about my shrieking at huge, heavy, dominating objects. How can anyone not be in love with this? It teases the onlooker, sitting quietly superior in front of its worshippers, only to suddenly whirr into life and show off for two or three minutes, slowly pirouetting like an aged prima ballerina before settling down again, confident in its … And yes, I did actually stand silently filming its sexy bogies for far longer than was strictly necessary: There is seriously nothing more to this post than me wriggling and shrieking SPACE YAY!! in a faintly unnerving manner. But what’s the point of writing a blog if one can’t use it to post pics of science porn when the mood arises? Violet x CLICK HERE TO FOLLOW SEX, DEATH, ROCK’N’ROLL ON FACEBOOK TWEET...
