Autistic Acceptance Month – Routine

What is a routine?

Ok so I live in routines – everything is a routine. EVERY SINGLE THING. When I learned programming I was like oh cool now I understand how to define the things I do – functions.

But I also have chaos brain from ADHD just hanging out going “lets buy a camel” every now and then. Chaos brain keeps throwing tiny pieces of metal into the cogs.

What do you mean everything is a routine?

I need a drink… I run the routine…

if(GoGetADrink())
	cool
else
	randomlyResumeTask
		

bool GoGetADrink
{
	ForgottenTask = StartCoroutine(GetForgettingStatus) => 
	{
		wait 100ms;
		return GetRandomNumber(100) == 42
	}	
	while((hasDrink || ForgottenTask) == false)
	{
		if(CheckPantsForNeededRandomItems() == true)
		{
			switch(CheckLocation())
				case upStairs:
					GoDownstairs()
					if(ForgottenTask)
						break
				case downStairs:
					GoToKitchen()
					if(ForgottenTask)
						break
				case kitchen:
					if(ForgottenTask)
						break
					OpenFridge()
					if(ForgottenTask)
						break
					GetDrink()
					if(ForgottenTask)
						break
					return true

		}
		else
                {
	            return false
                }
	}
        return false
}	

I need constant structure – every thing is based on programming – programming makes sense to me because I see things in order. I have a constant random function running in my head that is just chaos brain who wants me to look at potato salad recipes for 40 minutes without potatoes or something… just some completely useless but amazing thing to know.

I have more routine than this – and breaking a routine often causes a system fault which can shut down my system. I hope this analogy works for some people. If you can’t read my psuedocode – I don’t know how to translate atm. I am not in a good writing routine currently. I have another blog on my mind lol.

Daily blog challenge

I will be writing every day on being Autistic for April using this list of prompts:
