Head Games

My son has started playing video games in his head. He can tell you the statistics, the layout, and all the attack and other information in great detail, to a game that he invented and plays in his mind when we won’t let him play on a gaming device. It is a little like having an imaginary friend. It is a lot compulsive, and really annoying to listen to all the details of a game that only he can see. It was a problem when we had to start setting times when he could play/collect at school so it didn’t interrupt his schooling. I often wonder how he’ll get through adulthood. 🙂 I love that his creativity is growing, and that he has developed this in his mind. Often, Asperger’s kids can’t think up new things and are stuck repeating only what they have seen or heard. His imaginative skills...

The Blog Workshop #TBW

Disclaimer: I received free access to a workshop in return for my blog posts. As always, the opinions expressed below are mine and mine alone. I was not paid or asked to give a positive review. The Blog Workshop is a great site for bloggers and a wonderful way to build your creative skills and advance your blog. Their site has a great community of bloggers, plus workshops and study groups on every topic essential to creating a popular and even financially successful blog. I do not make money blogging, but there are perks, and what I love most is the interaction with other bloggers. In a world where we are not connected to families and neighbors as much, it is nice to find a community of supportive, helpful people who are in the same situation as myself. I blog on several topics, and at other sites, and enjoy engaging...

I am Free!

I am finally released from bed rest and strict limitations on my activity. I can even drive. Today is a glorious day. I saw my doctor on Monday, and am healing slowly but surely. They are still concerned that my wound has not fully closed, and about the possibility of infection, but I am careful, and they will continue to monitor that. However, I have reached the glorious mark of six-weeks, and my doctor officially declared that I can start to resume normal activity and even drive my car as long as I don’t feel impaired. He’s even insisting that I taper off of medications. Hurray! Mostly I am a fan of being able to drive again. Driving is so linked to independence. I couldn’t go to the doctor without a ride, and I couldn’t do a lot of the things I normally do to help my family, like grocery...

2013 Goals

Rather than overwhelm myself with a years worth of goals, I am going to go month by month, and hold myself accountable via the blog. I divide my goals into categories, and usually like to have a written plan in my planner, and set deadlines, as all the wonderful experts suggest. The good news is that I am very driven and tend to achieve my goals. The bad news is that I often try to do too much. Family – Get  therapy and other interventions in place for Benjamin. Make family time “fun” therapy times. Establish weekly date nights with my husband. Spiritual – Read the Book of Mormon Pray out loud at least once daily. Physical – Exercise daily – I have joined a Dahn yoga studio and need to go everyday. We also have a Disney dance program for the Wii that will be awesome, and I need...

Struggling to Parent, or Parenting a Struggling Child?

Today I got a phone call that I never expected to receive. The basic suggestion behind the call is maybe our program is not the right fit for your child. He is disruptive, and we don’t know how to handle him. He’s been in this program for years. His behavior has not changed, but perhaps it should have, as he has gotten older. They had other teachers who dealt with his behavior wonderfully and he was thriving. Why is this year so different? What happened? Could it be that I spent most of last year in the hospital with a life threatening and life altering condition? Could it be that he is a scared little boy trying to cope with things that he doesn’t understand? Does my child have ADHD, or even worse, does he have Asperger’s syndrome? Sadly the questions that run through my mind are mostly is this...

Campus Book Rentals – Get your Textbooks Cheaper!

School starts for me today. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology that I spent 10 years earning. It took me 10 years because in between I got really sick, married, had a baby, and finished up everything online. I am currently half-way through the school part of my Master’s Program, and I have a goal to finish that before I am 40. 🙂 Since I plan to also be a Certified Health Coach, a Certified Life Coach, a Marriage and Family Therapist, and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, this is a lofty goal. The hardest part about graduate school is the lack of Pell grants and scholarships. Student loans will be the end of me if I’m not careful, which is why I love the service from Campus Book Rentals. I am a book lover, and like to hold my books, read them, mark them up and then use...
