Mood disorder, depression but this is post-natal. I was not really depressive before 30 years old.

I must be a socialist because everyone's offered the same over here. My parents were the same way. There are four people, the food is divided four ways.

lol, I was going to go after ouinon, but you beat me to it. ;) Ouinon, quoting yourself and getting more upset at Jennyfoo (who is asking for help!) doesn't help. It makes you look judgmental when you make all of those assumptions. Jennyfoo, the problem is two-fold. The first is the bingeing. I don'...

My son is autistic and sometimes I think it's because his speech issues interferes with his comprehension and sometimes I think he is completely checked out. lights on, no one's home. not in the way that he's not smart but that is just not present. He's in SuperMarioland or a Gene Kelly movie. I thi...

The Brits have a different idea of flashing than we do. Back when Princess Diana was still dating Prince Charles she was photographed in a way that you could see "through" her skirt and see her knickers or slip (taken in the sunlight). It was a big scandal though nothing was shown and she was wearin...

I think the "lacks imagination" is an error in observation. Like this Other times I think the confusion came from trying to re-describe at second or third hand - in other words, what the Aspies said (alligator) and what got written in the report (lizard) were not identical, and therefore tend to clo...

Dr. Grandin is one of my big heroes, possibly the biggest one. However, I don't agree with everything she says. Her comments about grooming, style and manners come from a different era and she states that plainly. She says that Aspies brought up in the more conservative times (50's) have the advanta...

What my sons need is what worked for them last year ..... support from a Special Ed teacher who understands Asperger's! yep Can you imagine what would happen if they stopped making schools wheelchair accessible, or denied a deaf student a translator? I'm getting really tired of people saying that a...

This!! ! This is the top reason why I hate northamericans (except for Canadians)! !! Instead of talking and solving their issues in a civilized matter, they are so damn greedy that they keep suing each other and so far the only people that are rich are the lawyers. I hate them. I hate them all, in ...

All of the above and contact info for the public school system and if there is an "expert" that can explain the district's protocol for transferring or registering an autistic child in school.

An oversight is like a mistake. Asking one of these people to watch your son brought more unwanted attention to your situation. Unintended consequences.

Okay, I get the institution part now. Yeah, it sounds like asking them to babysit was an oversight. Well, if you want to change schools and they are denying that, then you could appeal and say that he doesn't have access to the LRE. That's his right by law. If he can be fully included and doesn't ne...

I don't understand when you say you want a normal family. Is he living with you or not? I don't get this at all. You should be able to have him evaluated by someone from the district who is looking at his best interests (Least Restrictive Environment). Have you referred to the meds and home input to...

I find very few responders are actually hostile. But sometimes bluntness is confused for rudeness and/or anger. To me, the parents that are scared off (and don't come back) are the hostile ones. They are intolerant to the blunt talk and need to be comforted and addressed the way they are used to. It...
