Recently a video on the secret world of autism from finding coopers voice seems to have polarised the autism community. Some people found they could relate to it, yet some found they completely disagreed. For me it shows that Autism is a spectrum disorder. It varies from person to person. In recent years there has… Continue reading Are we really ordinary?
Sorry for the hiatus. I needed to take some time to breathe and look after myself! I'll be sharing what we've been up to these past few months in the next week and of course keep you updated on how back to school goes for the boys. For now this is where I'm at: At… Continue reading I’m back!
I saw a new doctor today who completely listened and understood what I was saying. He’s going to see me regularly and work along side a psychologist to implement strategies that will help me and has also given me a script to help with my anxiety and depression. It won’t be a quick fix but… Continue reading Dr Awesome.
Today is a bad day. A really bad day. I finally built up the courage to go talk to a GP about my mental health. It was a hard decision to make and harder to accept the fact that I have to concede to the fact I’m not coping well. I’m not sure if it’s… Continue reading Numb.
They say you can be surrounded by people and still be lonely. How true this is. I have a loving husband, three kids, family and many friends but still lately I feel so lonely. How many times are you told being a mother is the hardest job you will ever do. It is, I just… Continue reading Only the lonely.
I haven’t blogged for awhile, for two reasons. One I have barely had any time to sit down and two I really want this blog to be a positive space but right now I don’t feel so positive. I feel physically and mentally exhausted. Patrick’s not sleeping properly. He wakes around 2am and screams until… Continue reading The Crying Game.
It's funny isn't it, we have three kids. All boys. All three have the same parents (Jeff and I). We have raised them the same way with the same rules, yet they all couldn't be more opposite. Kallan is my easy going happy child, he always follows the rules. He never ever lies. He's happy… Continue reading DIFFERENCES.
I just realised I never shared the piece I wrote that got me blogging. A controversial Australian politician by the name of Pauline Hanson made a call during parliament that children with autism should be excluded from mainstream schooling. Kept in a classroom seperate from other children as they are taking up too much teacher… Continue reading My first piece.
So this blog is not about autism. I guess it's a little bit political but it's an issue that I think is important so I wanted to put my feelings into words. In Australia same sex marriage is not legalised nor recognised. It has been an ongoing debate for years now and something that I… Continue reading Love.
This week end was interesting. We decided to treat Kallan for his birthday and go out for the afternoon to get some dessert and let him spend some birthday money. We tried to be organised. Packed nappies wipes, the pram. We were getting dessert which is Paddy's favourite food so it seemed like it should… Continue reading Going out.
