    Fantastic. I take a different spin on the clothing, but it’s similar, several cardigans, interesting printed blouses and slacks that are largely mix and match cause I get bored easily and this way I feel like I have a much bigger wardrobe than I actually do.

    Also do work in tech, the phone solution definately sounds like a stunt I would or have pulled. Great idea really! Thanks for sharing. I foresee stealing the caribeaner plan too.

    Any thoughts on where to find a organizer on short notice. I think this is a brilliant idea.

    Was trying to reply to an article earlier. I had the same problem with being told I needed to solve it CAPTIA but there wasn’t one on the page. I assumed it was an error of accessibility with using high contrast mode and a screen reader, but apparently not.

    Using iPhone on iOS 11.4 I think. Also accessed from inside the browser in Inbox (gmail). Using Smart Invert colors and VoiceOver.

    I do see the “i’m Not a robot CAPTCHA on this screen.

    I am a 38 year old woman, and my melt downs express differently, but I don’t have a lot of control (or any at all) when they hit me. If get overwhelmed or am criticized, sometimes, just in jest, my best case scenario is to go completely still, even physically numb. I curl into myself, and get very stony.

    If I am not so fortunate, I cry, and try to explain, and justify. I get quite like a frightened child. I flinch at noises and sudden movements, and my friends who don’t understand what is happening will often exacerbate the whole thing by telling me not to be so sensitive, and even belittling my tears or attempts to explain. This sort of situation can set me off of an even keel for days. I fear I haven’t any advice, but wanted to say you are not alone.
