Stuck in limbo status

Originally posted 2014-06-03 13:47:39. Finally! I have someone going to bat for me. Thank Goodness because this is getting so frustrating. Plus when you get bills for $1900.00 for a hospital visit that resulted in nothing for you it gets even more frustrating. One of them has already gone into collections but what do you do? They call me and say they need a certain amount for it to be a payment arrangement but I…

Unexpected

A few days ago I had what I thought was just a follow-up appointment to discuss how a new medication was working for my bladder issues. After being called back they put me in a room to have a transvaginal ultrasound done. I didn’t recall needing to have this done but I wasn’t necessarily opposed to it because of my history of ovarian cysts. So… got the ultrasound done and then put in another room…

TouchPoints for anxiety

Originally posted 2019-06-12 13:00:34. Have you seen or heard of this product before? Someone left a review and stated that their child, who has autism, used it and it was helpful. I am trying to see if Dusty can use it since he has the VNS (vagal nerve stimulator). Experience for yourself why people reached for TouchPoints over 1 million times last year and how less stress leads to better sleep, performance, and improved living.…

What to say…

Originally posted 2020-08-16 18:39:26. My momma’s death has taken an even bigger toll on Dusty. He would always get at the very least a phone call and a card from my momma and my step father.He hasn’t even gotten a call or anything from my step father since my momma passed June 21, 2018. He just turned 27yrs old. He may be autistic but he has feelings too and they don’t understand why he hasn’t…

Most Annoying?

Originally posted 2019-06-04 20:28:13. Did ya’ll hear about this? What’s your opinion on it? Mine, depends on the situation but I mean if done as a joke and depending on what other kids may have gotten too. We don’t necessarily shield Dusty from life where he doesn’t experience it like other kids. We wanted him to have a semi-normal childhood. His classmates and schoolmates knew he had special needs and they joked with him but…

Life is precious

Originally posted 2019-06-01 06:17:25. My son… silly that he looks like he works out but he only works fork to mouth. You can see the vagal nerve stimulator in his chest to aid with his intractable seizure disorder – I never thought I’d see him reach 25 years old. He’s had meningitis and with his immune system the way it is they weren’t sure if he’d be able to fight it. My momma was there…

Bleaching Autism?

Originally posted 2019-05-23 10:11:21. I have to admit this is the first I have heard of this. Have any of you ever heard of this? Where did this originate from? Do people actually think it works or is it done more so out of desperation? I don’t mean to judge because there are times I have felt desperate but have’t ever gone to this extreme. What are your thoughts? Have you seen this before? I…
