I never ever beg.
That's a decision I took after I begged some social worker to change her description of me.
She depicted me as a needing person, who suffered from ill health and was a burden for my children. Implying I was unable to take care of my family.
Well, everyone who knows me knows I'm very well able to take care of my family and I certainly won't impose health problems on the children. I don't suffer from ill health even though I'm dealing with some nasty chronic diseases. It's a matter of attitude towards disease and I sure do have that attitude. LOL!
She didn't bother to change her description, so we suffered the consequences from that, as you know.
After that failure of someone who is taken as an official information supplier and feeling dependent on the opinion of someone else I've decided never to beg for something like that again.
If you want to think I'm a feeble old lady who depends on the support of her children, please expose yourself as plain stupid and non-observant. maybe others will even think you're jealous because I was able to raise 6 kids without any proper help (apart of some after the deliveries).
2. Have you ever lost a best friend after a fight?
3. When was the last time you just wanted to be invisible?
Last week when two kids of about 3 were discussing digging a hole in the sand of the playground near our houses. The voices where so funny and the way they repeated each other. I was invisible, standing on the gardenpath, until I realised my appointment wouldn't wait. LOL!
4. Which room of your home tends to be the messiest?
The attick needs attention, and my room is mainly the room I put things that need to be put away. And as I don't have always time.
Needless to say the kids need sometimes some positive reinforcement to tidy their room. They're old enough for me not to see it. LOL!
5. You are to be locked in a room forever with a celebrity. You get to choose. Who do you pick?
6. Has someone ever left another person to be with you?
Strange question? What do you mean?
7. What’s been kind of a drag for you lately?
Dealing with the paperwork for protected living of my son and the official organisations involved.
Kind of boring to repeat things on paper over and over again, espcially as they tend to report paperwork got lost.
8. How are you different from your (current or most recent) significant other?
Different interests, different character. Almost everything.
9. What is the most perverted thing someone has ever said to you?
That I abused my children and would be sued for that, just to make me say my husband abused the kids.
I was shaken, completely chacken and shocked by that. I never ever laid a finger on the kids, nor my hb.
It made me physically feel sick, as I believe kids should be raised in a positive environment and that positive reinforcement, trust and patience is the trick, not hurting kids.
Later that person said no such thing was said.
Well, two years later or so she was officiale removed from her job because something similar. When I remember well someone taped her telephone conversation and could proof borders were crossed.

Here you'll find impressions of my life as a mother of a few children with autism spectrum disorder and a person with heartfailure, some critical reviews of what going on in the world, including medical issues and political subjects. And everything else that keeps me busy.
I'm very honest about my experiences with autism, because only that way I can show how much of a struggle daily life with autism can be.

lack of concensus between disciplines
