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.

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.

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In order to wake Alex from a dissociative/mute/withdrawn episode I sometimes use songs that attract her attention and simultaneously offer a reward if she can repeat the song.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

Update on the Crazies

They are all sick, they have some sort of virus & they are not taking my orders or doing my bidding; can you imagine the gall. Okay maybe not all of them; Cat is just suffering from sullen resentfulness; so no change there.  And Tash is just exhausted because she got home at 12:00 last … Continue reading Update on the Crazies
