might not be around much for a little bit...
« on: May 12, 2010, 07:21:31 pm »
it all seems to be happening here and my head is whirling ...

first of all my son (nearly 7) has been diagnosed yesterday with Aspergers syndrome, so i will need to be doing what i can to get him (and us) the support we need for that

and i am off to the dr tomorrow as it seems that i probably have an underactive thyroid, which would explain why i have been soooo exhausted and unmotivated for months now.

i can't believe they have both come at the same time, but hopefully if i can sort the second i will have more energy to deal with the first. no wonder i haven't been cooking much!

Take it easy Karen.

That is a lot to deal with all at once.
 
Speedy healing to you.

I have one DS with Aspergers and another who is likely to be diagnosed in years to come if you need to chat. x

Brazen, best wishes.  At least you know what both problems are,  and both can be helped.

A lot to deal with in one go Karen. If the positive thoughts of your friends count for anything, then things will improve for you.

Thinking of you Karen and your family. My god son has Aspergers so sort of know what you are dealing with. Hope you get yourself sorted fast so you can do what you need to do with gusto. You will be glad of your TMX for meals for the next little while that is for sure. Take care  :-* :-* :-*

Thinking of you Karen. I hope you get your thyroid sorted soon and hopefully that will give you the strength to cope with your son's illness.

My love and caring thoughts to you and all your family.
