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
Finally the long awaited test results came in; proving I do not have adrenal fatigue. See Great News I Might Be Sick if you want to understand. I mean I still have autism, anxiety, depression, asthma, allergies, IBS, postural hypotension (low blood pressure), peri menopause, oh I forget most of the other stuff.

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!
This is a statement healthy people will never understand. It is part of the reason I believe it is so vital to tell kids if they have autism. I am happy I am sick because I feel absolutely dreadful, but if I'm sick and it has a name I might get better. I have heard … Continue reading Great News, I Might Be Sick!
Last 5 days I have been 'unwell'. So yet again I play the lovely game of what's wrong this time?

In my normal style of dealing with anything I have acquired books about my daughter's 2 new conditions. I can't read them yet. When I find a subject stressful I find when I try to read about it the words swim & hurt my head (more than usual). I often read by mentally spiraling the … Continue reading Dyslexic Daughter upDate
I have just returned from the psychologist with my youngest's diagnosis. Now she was diagnosed 6 years ago with Autism but they are now pretty sure she also has dyslexia and attention deficit disorder. Good news?
