Gradually over time, until at secondary school. I got the opportunity to do all sorts of things and that made me discover some of my talents and explore them. This made my self esteem grow.
2. Do you ever have a hard time with morals?
3. Do you eat in bed? If yes, what?
No, not at all. I hate crumbs in bed.
4. What was the last movie you hated and why?
I hardly watch movies and I certainly won't remember the bad ones.
5. Have you ever felt that you lost it all? If yes, explain.
People threatened to take away the girls for something stupid one of them said.
She only wanted to improve things at school and created an ugly situation because of ill advice and not thinking about it but acting on it.
I was told I was a bad parent and there was no way I could defend myself or my girls than to go along with what a woman wanted me to say. The sadness that followed was terrible.
I found out that people rather believe the bad than the good, and the way we're treated was below level.
6. Have you ever been stalked?
Don't think so.
7. Do you believe in 'self help' for problems, or do you prefer therapy?
Depends on the problems.
I certainly think that people can deal with a lot.
I'm a psychologist and I think that some people think far too much that therapy is the only way of healing and solving problems.
I think a healthy upbringing includes problem solving on all levels. That doesn't only include teaching how to use a band aid.
8. What celebrity do you think should make a run for office?
No need for me to think about that. I'm not american.
9. Do you believe in happy endings? (We do. That why this is the last question!)
Yea... sometimes endings are happy. Something endings can be accepted.

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.
A series of posts
about lack of knowledge,
lack of concensus between disciplines
and the need for a formal diagnosis
with a psychiatric label
to get support for a unique individual
autism and (no) school.
