SWAT Affirmations

It’s a lazy overcast Sunday afternoon. I can’t seem to keep my eyes open from being so exhausted. I guess going through menopause isn’t something for those of us that have things to do lol. So I find something new to watch on the ole boob tube. I started watching SWAT with Shemar Moore the other day. Yes, I know it isn’t exactly a new show. I spend alot of time working on my computer…

Another day of parenting

Originally posted 2014-10-14 19:30:12. One of my biggest struggles with my son is his ability to understand that even though he is 21 years old he doesn’t have the mind of a 21 year old. He thinks because he is 21 he should be able to do as he pleases. He is able to see others like his sister who is able to do things that he isn’t. It is a constant struggle with him…

Mother’s Day

Originally posted 2018-05-15 13:47:50. Forgot to share. Not sure when my husband managed to get Dusty to pick one out… but then again he probably just picked one out from Dusty’s point of view. Hope all my mother’s had a good one! Only thing we’d change on this card would be sports, just replacing it with food. Better yet, all 3 would likley be food.

September 23 2014

Originally posted 2014-09-23 16:35:20.   The military community has lost several veterans recently. My heart goes out to the families involved. The reality of PTSD and its effects on our military is ever more present in our everyday lives. My husband even changed after coming home from deployment. He won’t admit to it at all. After being screwed out of his career, trying to find a job, keep insurance for our family and keep our…

Autism and what it is in my home

Originally posted 2014-09-05 15:12:24. I recently watched the movie Rainman with Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman. I believe this was the first of its kind to show autism on this platform. It showed just how many people even those in the medical field were not aware of it and how much we didn’t know. As I watched it I say so many similarities in Dustin Hoffman’s character, who had autism. Even though it is now…

Never have I ever

Yesterday the anesthesia nurse for my upcoming surgery called for the pre-surgery instructions. Nothing out of the ordinary until she started telling me what medications I needed to stop and ones I could continue taking. My diabetes medication is normally not taken the morning of the surgery. Pretty normal. But she also said not to take it the day before as well. Now this was new to me. My diabetes is controlled so it shouldn’t…

Why Routine Is So Important to Many Autistic People

Originally posted 2019-01-28 07:33:10. Routine in my house is a must. There are days when I want something other than the same old routine. I want to get up on a whim and just ride to the water or somewhere other than behind these walls…. Maintaining a healthy routine can be an essential aspect of daily living if you’re on the autistic spectrum. It can lead to stability and make life more bearable, but also…
