Updates- Situation & more

Time for one of those overall update posts I suppose so here we go: “The Situation” I have been dealing with.  I think I have read somewhere that the best way to deal with a bully is to take their power away.  That is really hard to do in a lot of situations.  Sometimes because […]

Transition Time!

The last few months have been quite a ride for all of us.  My son has really stepped up over the summer while I was sick.  It has been quite amazing to witness.  I can only hope it continues as we make the transitions over the next month. For me I go back to work […]

Thank you Chuck Lorre

Big Bang Theory is one of our favorite shows because we all relate so well to all of the characters.  My son especially relates to Sheldon in so many ways.  My son is brilliant but struggles with interactions with others.  Like Sheldon he needs to be told what social conventions are.  Sheldon makes him feel […]

Back to School but…

So last night he went to his room and watched YouTube starting at 7:30.  He even said goodnight early.  I could hear YouTube until around 9:30-10 so I know he didn’t go to sleep until later. At some point during the night he woke me up to help him find his cat.  Sure, sure I […]

School Refusal

He refused to go to school again today.   My son has been having issues off and on but has been insistent on staying at the public school.   I had been telling him that he had other options because I never want him to feel stuck there if the issues with other kids is […]

Bad Day with Asperger’s

Bad Day with Asperger’s

I usually have a positive outlook on Asperger’s and my son.  I honestly would not change his personality but there are things that make life hard for him.  I have written a lot about the events that occurred a couple of weeks ago and how he needs to get back in to the routine.  Today […]

Co-workers really awesome for Special Needs Mom!

On the bright side, my co-workers are awesome.  He woke up this morning and was agitated about going to school.  I gave him time, I tried to bribe him, I threatened, but no matter what I did he refused to go. He asked me if he could go to work with me.  I asked why […]

Friday update- It has been a wild ride!

I want to thank everyone for all of the support this week.  My son has done so well this year but had a setback that started here last Friday.  I am happy to report he returned to school today and it sounds like he had a great day.  It has been a long week!  I can’t […]

Turned a Bad Morning into a Giggly One

There is no school tomorrow!!  I am not sure who is more excited, me, or my son.  It is such an ordeal sometimes to get him out the door.  He has been a lot better over all and some mornings has even done an exceptional job.  But as we all know even when they are […]
