Do We Expect Too Much?

Okay hang onto the end folks, this could get rocky. Plus I can't edit stuff that upsets me. Sorry! I am seriously going off the therapies for autism. The messages are confusing and don't work together. There seem to be a couple of broad types of high functioning autistic types. The type who do want … Continue reading Do We Expect Too Much?

Unusual Perspective

I thought I might let you know some of my background. For those of you who are interested in that kind of thing. It's kind of a bit sad so I have interlaced some pictures to cheer you up. My mother's family seem like a sane bunch, except for a few issues of left/right  dominance, … Continue reading Unusual Perspective

Day 2

Hi, I've been reading other people's blogs. This was even harder than writing a post. Why? Because I am crazy and was terrified that bad things had happened in my absence. But if I didn't know about it it hadn't really happened and everything will be fine. Hey, get off my back I don't control … Continue reading Day 2

I’ve Been…

It's been a long while. Bit cliched, I know, restarting on New Year's Day. But I need all the pushing I can get.     KSP did not work out. Maybe because I'm a b&%@#, maybe because of the autism. But basically I couldn't communicate my needs or my ideas. The break up was a … Continue reading I’ve Been…

Evil Money Grubbing Loon Turns Professional Beggar.

Help I need Mon Mon. Remember I wrote some books to help my youngest and foolish people encouraged me, and I insanely decided to try and publish them.  If you need a reminder read Things I am Trying to do.     So needing a new old car and trying to save the front garden has … Continue reading Evil Money Grubbing Loon Turns Professional Beggar.

Can an Autistic Person Legitimately Become a Writer?

Of course disabled people can do whatever they want to.  Rah,rah disabled rights.  Okay, done? Seriously though, writing is supposed to be based in truth, right?  Even the most preposterous fantastic premise must be based on the human experience, it must have internal cohesion or it becomes pointless. So you write from what you know.  … Continue reading Can an Autistic Person Legitimately Become a Writer?

Farewell Beloved Smokie

I don't even know how to write this... Smokie passed away, renal failure after a kidney blockage; it was fast, bloody and completely unexpected.  My marshmallow cloud.  The vet gave him a pain killer while we waited for tests, the results were dire.  No real choice.  But the morphine gave us time to get the … Continue reading Farewell Beloved Smokie

I Am Not A Person, I Am An Autistic.

'I am not my disability, I am a person!' Interesting, but in terms of autism how accurate is it. I suppose what it gets down to is how do we really understand 'a person'.  Other disabilities, sure I'll give you that, as far as I know.  Blind people are people who can not see, deaf … Continue reading I Am Not A Person, I Am An Autistic.

My Little Genius

Tabitha is in year 11 and thanks to the years of delays in obtaining therapy her coping strategies are completely inadequate to the new level of tension.   The cracks started to show at the end of last year; studying the Holocaust upset her so much it effected all her subjects.  I wanted her to … Continue reading My Little Genius

A Mouse In Our House

Saturday night the cry went out. "There's a mouse in my shoes!" yelled Cat. Lisa; the mighty mouse hunter leapt to her feet.  Gavin looked confused. Finally I was in my element.  I can catch mice.  No I am not a cat, I am a fat old lady who waddles about and spends most of … Continue reading A Mouse In Our House
