Dear Junior, I just want you to know, I try to have patience I really do. I'm sorry things are tough at the minute, I promise life will get easier. I think it's great you are now showing an interest in your ADHD Diagnosis, but honestly it doesn't change who you are, you are still … Continue reading Dear Junior……..
So here we are a year after diagnosis. Are things any different? The answer is No! Most definitely not. I can honestly say, naively I thought things might improve. I dont know how or what i thought a piece of paper, and some medication, would magically change. After all even the professionals all describe him … Continue reading A Year After ADHD Diagnosis…..
I am the Mum you see out and about. The Mum who looks young. The Mum who has three children. The Mum who looks like she has no control over her boys. The Boys who you may hear before you see, the boys who cant keep still. The boys who talk at a high volume. … Continue reading I am the Mum….

i feel im lost in a fog. Everythings hazy. It could be the lack of sleep. Since Junior had his seizure, and speaking to the Epilepsy Consultant, im so scared that Juniors night time jerking and twitching, is actually seizures. In my last post i wrote about how quick everything was going, it was a … Continue reading Just a Mama wanting answers…
Thursday the 29th September started off as any other day. The usual morning. Tantrums, attitude then breakfast club at school. Nothing was unusual. I went to do my car theory test and passed, i was beyond happy and phoned to tell everyone the news. I went home, made my lunch then sat down to eat. Then … Continue reading The First Seizure
Yesterday we visited Energi Trampoline Centre in York. I did briefly mention this in my last Blog post. I did mention the hellish Coach journey. The actual centre was well worth it though. We went to the Autism Friendly Session. When we arrived the lighting had been turned off, as had the music and the … Continue reading Energise York
This is our reality. Junior got angry. I couldn't explain to him what was going to happen throughout the day while I was at work. He destroyed the trampoline. Juniors speciality as you might want to call it, is destroying things. I honestly don't think at the time it's always intentional. He regrets … Continue reading Our Reality
I often sit and wonder, will my life contain any consistency? Junior and Alfie crave consistancy, but Junior is so unpredictable. He can go from 1 to 100 in 0.1 seconds. I can't always see a trigger. Am I blind? Is there a trigger? I'm mentally exausted. It's as if I get sucked into a … Continue reading Consistency & progress
Today I feel bad. I feel bad for complaining about my Cubs, for complaining about Juniors behaviours, for finding motherhood hard. I have just read a blog on Facebook, about a Mum who had lost her child. I've come across a few of these blogs lately. I cannot even begin to comprehend what they are … Continue reading Appreciation
