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…..
Have you ever felt that crushing feeling? The feeling you're been suffocated? The knot in your stomach, the sudden sweats, the lightheadeness, the dry mouth, the struggle to swallow, the panic? The fight or flight kicks in, and you just want to run home and get in bed? Shut the curtains, lock the door? Hide … Continue reading Anxiety, Me & A Baby
I'm an emotional kind of person at the best of times. Pregnancy just intensifies it a million times. Some of my emotions I wish I could tame. The crushing jealousy and insecurity. The hatred for my changing body. Except my growing boobs. I love having boobs. The extreme highs of excitement and the unknown. The … Continue reading Pregnancy Emotions and PND.
i feel im lost in a fog. Everythings hazy. It could be the lack of sleep.

I have tried to take a step back from blogging, and social media. I have come to the conclusion that i need to blog and spend time on social media. This is my outlet. My support system. I need social media as much as i need a cup of coffee in the morning. I never … Continue reading Adulting
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
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
I took this picture today to capture a huge monumental moment in our life. We have had so many backward steps at the moment. Junior has had many meltdowns and has been especially high at the moment. After having a discussion with our support worker, she talked about Juniors loudness, excessive screaming and the need … Continue reading 10 steps back 1 leap forward
