When I was younger I absolutely hated reading, it was not my thing and I would put off reading anything from school until the very last minute. I don't know what it was exactly, too tedious, too long, too many other things on my mind to concentrate! The only thing worse than reading for me … Continue reading Maybe there IS hope!
Went off this morning to find out if I have a heart! *chuckle* I don't have a Grinch t-shirt so I wore my grouch instead! 😛 If I ever go for a brain scan I'll be sure to wear one of my minion tees! *giggle* We'll figure out some things once the tests get back … Continue reading Just another day in paradise

I'm done with feeling guilty! If my child needs a mental health day, if he needs to work from home (since almost everything is available online now anyway) than he will have it. I'm tired of feeling bad or guilty because I'm doing what's best for him, and for me! This morning he was pacing … Continue reading Done with the guilt!

My youngest told me today as he was trying to manage yet another trigger - "There is no place for people like me in this world."
