Scary Day Ahead!

Any of you that have had much to do with autism and therapy blah blah, will know we were not allowed to languish at home for long after the KSP implosion. I mean I learnt my lesson. Lisa (I) am not good with people. It takes all my energy, it is scary and so anxiety … Continue reading Scary Day Ahead!

I Think My Human Costume Is Wearing Out. Part 4

This may (emphasis on the word may) make more sense if you start with part 1 first then part 2 etcetera. First a little back tracking.  I may not have given an accurate account of the Literary Dinner.  The food was magnificent, the company scintillating, it would have been a phenomenal night except for this one … Continue reading I Think My Human Costume Is Wearing Out. Part 4

I Think My Human Costume Is Wearing Out. Part 3

Despite your misgivings I actually use the same numbering system as humans, so read part 1 first then part 2 etcetera. So I survived The Literary Dinner and Gavin had called and was in the car outside.  Actually I had sent him a message to come in when he got there and join us for … Continue reading I Think My Human Costume Is Wearing Out. Part 3

I Think My Human Costume Is Wearing Out. Part 1

I have been talking to lots of real humans lately.  So at the moment I feel like a juggler whose thrown a dozen eggs in the air, I have realised that having lost sight of them I will not be able to catch them and I am just waiting for them to splatter before I … Continue reading I Think My Human Costume Is Wearing Out. Part 1

Weather Forecast

Our eldest is going to Super Nova or some such thing tomorrow and is a bit nervous.  Not because of the possible gravitation issues, its a collecting, sci/fi thingamajig not a astrological whatsit.  I think my linguistic skills are compromised by a lack of sleep. Anyway she is nervous because she is basically a recluse … Continue reading Weather Forecast

I Am Awake, Shut Up Mum

In order to wake Alex from a dissociative/mute/withdrawn episode I sometimes use songs that attract her attention and simultaneously offer a reward if she can repeat the song.  Singing a funny song preferably with actions wakes her up.  By the time she can sing the song properly she is ready to safely walk around. This … Continue reading I Am Awake, Shut Up Mum

Biting the Hand That Feeds Us!

I have written a letter I plan to send to some local politicians.  To understand it Centrelink is our Social Security benefits agency, and NDIA is a new system for funding disabled people.  Autism is impossible to explain. Just a note I have met one person that defrauded Social Security; he was probably a Sociopath, … Continue reading Biting the Hand That Feeds Us!

Agoraphobia. Part 6 The End

Part 1          Part 5 Unfortunately it is difficult to push the little fledglings out if we won’t leave ourselves.  So, frankly, I am being forced into the horrible, ‘real’ world for the sake of my kids.  I hate maternal instinct.  And please realise I know that I am doing all this … Continue reading Agoraphobia. Part 6 The End

Agoraphobia. Part 5

Part 1          Part 4 It’s confusing; a neurotypical friend of ours called fairly last minute to cancel an outing because she had a headache.  My brood were very confused. “But Mum, you can’t cancel something for a headache.” I had to explain to them that people that rarely have headaches need to … Continue reading Agoraphobia. Part 5

Agoraphobia. Part 4

Part 1          Part 3 Not that I’m any better!  Left alone I sometimes feel I need a shower about half the time I fall; only when I’m alone, I seem to have a lemming (actually the lemming thing is a myth) instinct and am inexplicably drawn to the shower when I am … Continue reading Agoraphobia. Part 4
