Autism, and other stories

I’ve never done anything like blogging before.  I am not very tech savvy but writing a book seems like a lot of hard work for someone who’s brain is often on many different tracks so this seemed like an easier option.

I have 4 children, 2 daughters and 2 sons.  The lads are on the Autistic spectrum.  My 23 year old is non verbal and at the severe end and my 4 year old is classed as moderate, for now.

One thing I remember from counselling is that she said talking about things often helps put things in perspective and as I can’t afford £50 a throw for counselling this is it!

So this will be my take on our family life, family life with ASD – the good, the bad and the ugly!IMG_1200

  1. Counselling can be so expensive.

    Husband needed it sorely at Christmas (didn’t want him to have to be referred to a really poorly funded NHS service and get an appointment in six months time when he told me he wished he didn’t exist, and that we shouldn’t have met as he is such a burden to me), so we too opted for him be seen privately.

    It’s £40 a session, was hoping to start saving in a pension fund, but his mental health comes first.
    And with going private he could be seen quickly, and we could choose a counsellor who at least had some insight into Asperger’s Syndrome and how it can make life challenging.
