A few links for sensitive souls…
I did go ahead and make a Facebook page: The Highly Sensitive Homeschooler on Facebook. Yes, “likes” make my day.
(thinking my next link should be from someone’s blog who identifies as Very Crunchy) 🙂
Hope you all are having a blessed, restorative weekend!
Breaking a “rule of awesome bloggers” to say I’m sorry for my obvious lack of blogging lately. All my energy has gone towards getting the kids through the last few weeks of their school year, and preparing my oldest for her first overnight trip to a youth conference. She has multiple, severe food allergies, so it was a leap of faith for all of us!
Melody over at Blossoming Joy has written a helpful piece on homeschooling, and living in general, with low energy:
Are any of you HSPs also low energy? I know I am. Sometimes I think having my defenses up most of the time to ward off a high energy world is tiring in itself, but now I know I’m also anemic, have low blood pressure, and I have all the symptoms of low thyroid (although I test normal.) Most days are like dragging myself through hot mud. Which is why this blog has like 3 posts, LOL. If this sounds like you, too, go over to Melody’s and read all about it. 🙂
