I’m starting to feel a lot better now that my iron levels are gradually going back up. I predict that my next blood test will come back saying that I am no longer in the Anaemic range. I still have to take the medication (iron tablets) I’m on for five more months just to make… Read More This is my most ‘productive’ week so far this year!
I am the kind of person that says what others are most likely thinking. This time its regarding the constant stories about adoption related issues. The latest is post adoption depression. The fact that adopters get help when they’ve gone and told their social worker but when it comes to the birth parents needing help… Read More Some things have to be said. And, this is the first time I have ever disclosed the events leading up to my son being taken into care.
I am worried that I’m going to find out things that will make me unsettled again. I am the kind of person who likes to know everything about whatever is going on, but at the same time I’m scared about what will come out when it comes to the finer details. I have an intuitive… Read More I’m worried because I feel something.
I’ve been busy all day. I basically walked everywhere. I still have to walk back to my Car which I have left about 4 miles away from a relatives house. I popped into the library to enquire about using the smart system as my local library (in the actual town where I live) is barely… Read More Sorting things out and trying to lose weight in the process.
It is 16th April. It would have been my Son’s 7th birthday. All those that know me are aware that my Son was forcibly adopted at nearly 2 years old. This is the first year that I haven’t been tearful on the day. I’m more numb now. I feel drained today. I had a Bath… Read More The day has been hard.
I don’t want others to get the wrong idea. I am aware that a comment of mine was taken out of context. I am now going to explain what I meant by the note to other autistic females about not letting themselves being labelled with a personality disorder. I wasn’t lucky myself. I didn’t avoid… Read More Personality Disorder labels for Autistic females.
I heard that the ex DMU Vice Chancellor is about to take up a position as a VC at another struggling University. He should never be allowed in that type of role again. Apparently, he already was at another University before DMU and caused just as much troublesome corruption there. Some of the other former… Read More I am just shocked at the things I hear sometimes.
I have been in two minds whether to write about this subject. However, I think that I should talk about Probation services because, in my experience, they don’t seem to be working in reality. Recently, the Probation service is no longer in the locality where I live in the County because the council won’t allow… Read More Probation Services / Memories.
I haven’t been ignoring anyone. I have barely been online this week. I think I’ve only replied to a few emails and Twitter because they go to my phone. The new boiler was fitted in my flat today. The plumber arrived at 8am this morning so it has felt like a long day. I am… Read More This week has felt so long. It is so hard regarding privacy. How do I actually describe what I do in my life?
I don’t think I was actually ready to go back out there because I’m not feeling too great now. I do really want to go back out there and start ‘living’ again after all the things I’ve been through. I keep having the strangest dreams. Most of them are verging on nightmares. I think that… Read More I don’t think I’m ready to go back out there yet.
