Mondays By Mums - Decisions

Its been a great weekend, less tantrums and tears, more fun. On the Sunday we made the decision to get William a new bike. He has had this tiddly plastic toddler thing for years, and is very fond of it.

Relationships, Friendships And More

Recently, well since the start of my relationship, I have been thinking a lot more about relationships in all forms. You have family bonds, you have romantic bond and then you have friendly bonds. Unfortunately for me friends are not something that I have many off.

Does A Diagnosis Change Anything?

Hello everyone,
I had an interesting conversation with Claire that I think would be good to talk about. You see, Claire has a ADHD diagnosis, but since the first day I met her, I've been fairly sure that she's also on the spectrum. While walking we we're talking about a few different things and the subject moved over to what it was like to have my autism diagnosis.

Been Feeling Down

This week has been pretty down for me, I have no idea what the cause is but I just been feeling really sad for no reason which is rather annoying to be honest.

Relationships Are Hard

Me and Claire have been together for a little over a month now and I think it's going well. We have the usually small fall outs but haven't actually had anything even close to an argument.

Mondays By Mums - The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

Starting in reverse.... 
THE UGLY
Its been a tiring week, and William's behaviour has been terrible. Tantrums, screeching and repetition has been constant, and that really sucks.

A Picnic With Claire

So yesterday me and Claire went for a nice picnic. The idea was that we was going to walk to Scotsmans flash and have it there. We never made it to the flash.

Becoming An Adult

Yesterday I took to Facebook to find out what it is you all want to hear. I got a few responses but one struck a chord in me. The question of becoming an adult, puberty, hormones and all of that goodness. Now the transition into adulthood isn't an easy aspect of life for anyone to handle, but for someone on the spectrum it can be a nightmare.

More Medication

Hello everyone,


On Monday I went to see the doctor about increasing my Concerta dose. I am currently taking the lowest amount possible as I have only recently restarted taking the medication.

Mondays by Mums - Acceptance

Today's post is about acceptance. Not about accepting that William has autism, but that some days as a family we are truly accepted just the way we are.
