    Just had a strange thing happen.

    Mother in law died approx 5 years ago of breast cancer and lived around 80 miles from us, although she often stayed, especially when she was unwell. My GP surgery just called to say that they had had an urgent message left to say my MIL was staying and was unwell, and they were asking me to confirm that I wanted them to visit and that my MIL was here with me at my home. They had her name and her date of birth...yet she never registered with them (she had her own GP)


    Made me feel quite strange, a real message out of time.

    Major major step forward for middle son at the weekend....his band played publicly for the first time!

    Not so huge normally but two members (one of them is middle son) have Aspergers and music has given them a channel for their aggression and something to chill them out. They loved it and now want to do more!
    We made it! Two graduated, 1 currently at university, been hard work but it shows there is a possibility of a chance of normal (ish) life after a diagnosis (or two) of ASD. It's not been the easiest route but I am so glad I ignored everything and everyone and did my own therapies with them.
    Eldests' EDS diagnosis 4.5.10, mine 13.1.11 eekk!

    Certainly was.....he had another breakthrough on Monday, he took part in a jam session without his bandmates. Ok it took a lot of nagging by his friends but he finally did it.

    Not bad for someone who has to rehearse to death every single thing he plays...and he appeared to enjoy it a fair bit which is even more important.
