I want you to know I SEE you.

I know that this morning you contemplated not having a shower as the washing up was piled in the sink despite your husband/older child’s promise to do it.

I know you skipped that shower and had a quick wash in the sink.

I know you did that so you could wash up and make your kids breakfast quickly ...

13444485_1742804909331952_2136429771_nDear 13 year old me,

You’ve been bullied to the point of a suicide attempt, three straight days of having your front door kicked and being called a female dog. Your crime? To go out it with the best looking boy on the estate.

 

Your suicide attempt doesn’t work as I was there, watching and begging you to wake up, to tell your unsupportive mother ...

You didn’t expect this, you didn’t expect that your child would be different.

You felt betrayed and alone when your pediatrician read out their autism diagnosis, and you hurt.

You still hurt till today.

You would have been a soccer mom, a cheerleaders mom, a mom on the PTA doing cake sales, car pools and helping organizing the prom.

Your ...

Due to information given to me today by a concerned US citizen I launched an independent investigation into a clinic in Tennessee called Cool Springs Family Medicine..

This clinic claim to be holistic healers, and have made the detrimental decision to state that they will no longer supply parents with vaccinations as, according to their website and blog, they cause autism.

This is blatant misinformation and fear mongering, they are risking an outbreak of highly infectious disease causing dreadful harm ...

Tourettes: An Interview With Advocate Paul Stevenson.

Posted by:

It’s Tourettes Awareness month and I must confess to not knowing as much as I would like to know about the neurological difference that can provide great challenges to those affected by it.

We have all seen the stereotypical verbal tics some people with Tourettes can display, we may even have laughed along with them in tv shows as they blurted swear words and random phrases.

Sadly, due to ignorance of the public perception of Tourettes , the physical tics are often ...

As an autistic and mother of autistic children I once allowed my now ex partner to discreetly film my sons meltdown.

In the three minute video I was hit thirty three times, my sons distress was complete and it was heartbreaking to see.

The short was shown to the paed (with no volume and without my sons knowledge) to show the level of his distress in ...

I became a fan of yours through hearing ‘Patiently Waiting’ your first taster release, I already adored the lyrical genius of Eminem so it wasn’t hard to take to you.

I admired the fact that you overcame adversity and fought back against being shot nine times to make a name for yourself.

I’m sure ...
