7. Autism is...

… The Home/School book. B gets her book filled daily with what she has done or where she’s been as she can’t tell me herself. School will also record less thrilling things such as foods eaten, bowel movements and if she has any nappy sores (a recurring problem.) Its also used for me to tell them on days when she gets up at 4am or hasn’t eaten or exciting things she’s done at the weekend (tv and iPad use don’t heavily feature.) Her book is what I look forward to most as without it I’d be totally in the dark. 38 more words

Day 30 - 3.0 miles (114 miles total) #rwrunstreak #aspergersyndrome

A Dream

So earlier this month, I was taken to the emergency department for what they thought at first was heart related. It turned out to be dehydration, and was causing my kidneys to be very upset. 734 more words


You are SO able!

Haven’t seen Sonny in weeks.

So here are some random ramblings…
Occasionally, Sonny has a meltdown when we are out, only when something is really bad, (like its really crowded, or the pool is shut etc) but when it does happen, and he is crying and screaming and hitting, that is when I really see Sonny’s autism. 292 more words
