hygienically

So. Um. Hi, sorry. Is it normal for autistic people to struggle with brushing teeth even on those rare days when one theoretically has the energy? I've always had trouble with it but I'm not sure if that's just me being terrible at life

Yes! And from there it can be either an executive dysfunction problem, or a sensory problem. It depends on the person.

A Historical Relic and a History Professor Walk into a Bar- (series) by thecommodore_squid 

Steve narrowed his eyes. “I’m beginning to suspect I’ve been set up.”

“I would never,” Natasha said, feigning shock.

Steve sighed.

“God fucking dammit,” he heard someone say and looked up.

AKA
An AU in which Steve is still Captain America and Bucky is the unfortunate history professor selected to help him understand those references.

I Understood that Reference by RedBlazer

Polite, doesn’t know how to use a computer, tucks his shirt into his pants, and has exquisite hygiene. Bucky doesn’t know where this guy came from, but it sure as hell wasn’t Brooklyn.

Nothing’s As Sweet As Super Soldiers In Love by heartsdesire456

Informally titled: Bucky Barnes Loves The 21st Century Almost As Much As He Loves Steve Rogers

“Captain America’s mystery lover! That’s what everybody’s talking about.”

Bucky turned around as soon as he heard ‘Captain America’, only to see Tony had on some entertainment news report and his latest photo of sleeping Steve was flashed up on the screen beside the person talking. “Hey, what’s that?” he asked, hopping over the back of the couch to land beside Stark.

“Your Cap lovin’ gone viral, I guess,” Tony said, turning up the volume.

“Rumors spread like wildfire with the first photo of Steve Rogers, Captain America himself, was posted to a comically named Instagram called ‘GodBlessAmerica36’.”

The Spin I’m In by victoria_p (musesfool)

Five times Bucky kissed Steve because of ~reasons~, and one time Steve finally believed he really meant it.

this is….a very weird question but ive been really nervous to ask anyone about it and get laughed at….? 

for some context, i grew up in a dirty, neglectful home where i wasn’t taught basic hygiene habits and a ton of other basic shit, but i’ve been learning ever since i’ve left but i’ve really been scared to ask what the actual amount i’m supposed to do things? like i know to brush twice a day. but how often do people shower? do their laundry? do their dishes? brush their hair? clean their rooms ? like…what is the expected amount ??

A daily reminder to remember to care for your host body when you can!

Hygiene can be a taxing quality of being human, but if you can, try to remember to brush those teeth today and take a shower this week! You’re doing great and I’m proud of the effort you’ve been making thus far

Will Grefé, Mulsified Cocoanut Oil Shampoo, 1922.

“Why You Can Have Beautiful Hair

Beautiful hair is not a matter of luck, it is simply a matter of care.

You, too, can have beautiful hair if you care for it properly. Beautiful hair depends almost entirely upon the care you give it.

Shampooing is always the most important thing.

It is the shampooing which brings out the real life and lustre, natural wave and color, and makes your hair soft, fresh and luxuriant.

While your hair simply needs frequent and regular washing, to keep it beautiful, it cannot stand the harsh effect of ordinary soaps. The free alkali in ordinary soaps soon dries the scalp, makes the hair brittle and ruins it.

That is why discriminating women use Mulsified cocoanut oil shampoo. This clear, pure and entirely greaseless product cannot possibly injure, and it does not dry the scalp, or make the hair brittle, no matter how often you use it.

Simply put two or three teaspoonfuls of Mulsified in a cup or glass with a little warm water. Then wet the hair and scalp with clear warm water. Pour the Mulsified evenly over the hair and rub it in thoroughly. Two or three teaspoonfuls will cleanse the hair and scalp perfectly. It makes an abundance of rich, creamy lather, which rinses out easily, removing every particle of dust, dirt, dandruff and excess oil. The hair dries quickly and evenly, and has the appearance of being much thicker and heavier than it really is. It leaves the scalp soft and the hair fine and silky, bright, fresh-looking and fluffy, wavy and easy to manage.

You can get Mulsified cocoanut oil shampoo at any drug store or toilet goods counter anywhere in the world. A 4-oz. bottle should last for months.”

Itaat to struggle with laundry? I can and know how to do my laundry but I struggle to force myself to do it and I struggle with keeping it in one place. I know it's easier to just put it in the basket after I take it off but I can't keep up doing that I just leave it all over the floor because I can't keep up with it. I do this with trash too. I just never get it in the bucket? I just leave t laying around. I'm just lazy or something or what but I'm not lazy with other things just these types

I do this too! It’s an executive dysfunction thing, which is itself an autism thing. Laziness is not wanting these things to get done, but it sounds like it bothers you that you can’t keep up with cleanliness things, so it’s not that. Executive function is when your brain is really bad at planning out multi-step tasks, even if you technically know how to do something. It’s also a deficit in working memory, which is your ability to remember something and also be able to use that memory. So, either you forget to put things in the basket because your working memory isn’t good, or putting things away feels too big (like maybe you should put other clothes away too, or you have to go to another room to throw out trash) and your brain can’t handle it. Luckily, the internet/tumblr has lots of tips for dealing with executive dysfunction. Mostly I just try to keep trash bins close to me and schedule out certain times to pick up garbage and clothes. Good luck finding something that works for you!

Hygiene, Health, and Product Tips

       The journey to and through testosterone is one of the most challenging, exhausting, and rewarding adventures I have taken thus far in my life. Personally, I’ve had kind of a love/hate or hit/miss relationship with my hormones. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change going on them, but I would change how I treated my body during the beginning stages. I am currently on 5 cc of testosterone that I inject weekly. I am terrified of needles, but more terrified of the patches (thanks that one House episode where the man nearly killed his family). *Warning: I’m going to be telling products I looked for that kind of info when I started my transition, so sorry for the whole infomercial vibe*

      Pro Tip #1: Exercise. Work out. Get your body moving. I was lazy and only fed my body fried foods or take out. That is extremely unhealthy regardless of your hormone status, but especially when you’re on testosterone. I learned that the hard way. When I wasn’t working out consistently, I found myself to be more moody and irritable than the T already made me. I became even more dysphoric because I was gaining fat in all the places I’m self-conscious of. This may not be the case for everyone, but it certainly was for me. 

       I don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to the gym since I’m in my last semester of college and these capstone projects and work are taking up all of my time. Plus getting up at 6 am to go reminds me of the military, which makes me feel depressed. I found the Insanity Max30 videos, and they only take 30 mins out of your day, so it was perfect for me. Find your muse. Get moving.

       Pro Tip #2: Shower more regularly. If you’re one of those people who are able to be one with nature and smell good, then ignore this one. If you’re like me and sasquatch himself couldn’t compete with you on how bad you smell then please read on. About a week after I had my first shot of T, I woke up and was like what the hell is that smell? Yep, it was me. I realized that the smallest of tasks made me smell terrible. I don’t sweat heavily either, so this really came as a shock for me. 

       Turns out I apparently have the gene for extreme hair growth (even though that was NOT the case before), so soap became an issue. Nothing would really make me feel clean. I started using Dr. Squatch soaps about 2 months into T. It has masculine smell options and suds up well. I know a company called Mack Soaps is run by a fellow member of the trans* community, but I haven’t tried them yet. 

        Pro Tip #3: DON’T SKIP SHOTS OR BLOOD WORK. I never thought I would miss a shot. Testosterone is the one thing I had always wanted, and so there is no way I’d skip one right? Wrong. I did. A lot. I would be anxious about the needle or just forget. It really gave me bad mood swings, and eventually I could feel my ovaries trying to kick back into action (maybe that was just in my head, but it terrified me). I also recently had a scare with blood work. My clinic shut down that I had been going to, and was too scared to go somewhere else. I started to have pains in upper abdomen. Turns out my spleen was enlarged because of my T. I got it regulated, but don’t ignore blood work. It’s so important.

       Pro Tip #4: Alright. This isn’t really a tip, but I get asked a lot about hair products, so here ya go: I am stuck on Dirty by Lush right now. It’s one of the few I’ve used that washes out really easy, but also holds well. It also has an earthy smell, so bonus! I like the Uppercut Featherweight (white can) as well, but I’m not a huge fan of the smell of that one. 

If you guys have any other questions or product recommendations, just ask and I’ll be sure to answer.

All aboard for a train ride with “Mrs Bradshaw’s Handbook to Travelling Upon the Ankh-Morpork & Sto Plains Hygienic Railway”! I trust Georgina Bradshaw to give us accurate and entertaining information. Also she is lovely and a good dresser. The fact that this book was done up to look like an old library book or a book someone has been travelling around with, dropping on all sorts of ground, dog-earing, and lending to friends, is pretty great.

i use it for my body

i use it in my hair

i use it to cleanse my face of makeup and moisturize

i asked my aunt to let me use some for my face before i showered and for my body afterwards but she was like ??????? “let me give you some actual facial cleaner and lotion. this is the good stuff” she handed fancy looking tubs of stuff and i tried it

*sigh*

my face feels horrible. it feels dry and like there’s a film of something coating my skin. i tried moisturizing with her lotion but like … ugh
