Blog:Planet Autism- EXCLUSIVE #Disability Discrimination means Son is removed from Home?

The discrimination against autism and EDS families has to stop! Corruption in social services and the family courts has to stop! Shocking discrimination against an autistic mother AGAIN and prevention of diagnosis of her son. For what reason has he been removed? Precisely none as far as I can see. Disgusting system. Please all reblog this and spread this story to shine a light on it.

Every time I swear that it’s the last time Just one last time Just can’t take it Every defense I build it blows right through it Pushes past it Just can’t make it Every sense I get that it’s a bad one It’s an even worse one It knocks me down and I ask the teacher above what’s my lesson Where’s the balance Help me understand

Blog:The Greatest Adventure- I Made A New Blog!

I made a new blog documenting my attempts to get happier. It’s a departure from the style of this blog. Me without the mother side, I suppose you could say.

I’m going to have some fun with it. I hope you like it too.

Blog:Mama Pineapple- Director's Commentary

Blog:Mama Pineapple- Director's Commentary

I talk to myself. An awful lot.

When I do this, I’m almost invariably verbalising my thinking about, and processing of, the thing I’m doing at that particular moment.

This isn’t the same as the inner monologue that runs incessantly over everything that I do; the one I hear at every waking moment, but which remains silent, inaudible, to others. This is outwardly-focused. Truly verbal. 

My husband calls it my “director’s commentary”.

Most of the

Blog:The Greatest Adventure- I Am Not Autistic

I didn’t fulfil my intention to post regularly throughout July. It was one of the busiest and most emotional months I have encountered for quite some time: Son entered the final month of primary school and the month ran away with us: there were day trips and a two-week transition spell in his secondary school, which involved me gathering together hitherto unfamiliar equipment such as a scientific calculator, a protractor, a compass, a set

Blog:The Silent Wave- The silent wave has crashed

It’s 2.30am in the central United States.  I stand in the entryway of the apartment, shoes on, jacket draped over my forearm.  The only thing left is the set of keys on the ledge by the door. 

 I’m torn, half of me wanting to grab them and run, let him panic and come looking for me, and the other half of me telling myself to knock it off, reminding myself that any “panic” on his

Blog:Losing It Slowly- On the Road again

This week is a week of stress. I have two job interviews and I am starting the week driving my grandparents back after a weekend visit.

Last week ended in an emergency hospital visit after 3 hours of sleep to discover my dad has kidney stones. The hospital, a hypochrondriacs nightmare… That started to disrupt my routine. The visit took that to the next level, with two sick relatives for three days.

Then I drove

Blog:Triple AAA- Alcohol and Autism (initial splurge)

I’ve been mentally writing this one for ages.  But it’s just too big to fit in a post, and when I start methodically breaking it down, the task becomes too large to start.  Now I have asked my GP to refer me for diagnosis, though, it feels important to make a start.  I’ve read a lot recently about women going for diagnosis, but the professional undertaking that diagnosis feeling that their issues are related to

Blog:Pharaohs World!- Making Autistic sense out of chaos

I live in a chaotic world. 

Having a messy NT partner who spreads her stuff out around the house is not conducive to mental well being. I can’t find stuff, I have to move piles of stuff and when I have successfully done that I find another pile!. 

Anyone visiting us would think they’d entered some sort of craft fair or fabric emporium. There are boxes of fabric on the landing, a hugely impressive sewing/quilting/embroidery

Blog:The Silent Wave- Depathologizing Asperger's / autism ~ The strength vs 'lacking' edition

In her book “The Autistic Brain”, right there on page 122, Temple Grandin introduces a new term to my world: “local bias” – the ability to zero in on a tiny detail.  Shortly thereafter, she goes on to describe two separate-but-equal methods of thinking: top-down vs bottom-up thinking (page 124).

This revolutionizes my world, for too many of the conventionally-authoritative information sources on Asperger’s/autism appear to take great liberties in pointing out all that is

Blog:Pharaohs World!- When work simply doesn't work for us..

Yesterday my place of work had an “away day”. 

I suppose you could call it that. I’d called it a waste of my time and thankfully, my Autism means that I really don’t play well with others in forced situations like that and, if I do go, I get stressed and start acting up. 

I’ve been to a few in the past. I’ve almost always found them to be staged managed events promoted as giving

Blog:Reports from a Resident Alien- “You're a wizard, Harry.”

My you’re-a-wizard moment:

“Lisa, I really think you should be evaluated for autism.”

The speaker was a psychiatric nurse-practitioner with a grown-up autistic son, and she recognized the same traits in me. I was about twenty-three years old.

I grew up with a mother who worked as an occupational therapist, sometimes with autistic children, and she didn’t want me “labeled”. She thought that because I was smart, I couldn’t be autistic. When I screamed because

Blog:Planet Autism- “The Damaging Snowball Effect of Professionals' Words”

Sometimes you get a sense of something being up with peoples’ reactions to you, without knowing what or why.  As a special needs parent you need to deal with a host of professionals along the way, going through assessment to diagnosis, getting your child’s educational needs met and potentially, ongoing health issues.  For an autistic parent this can be a veritable minefield.

Parents want to work in partnership with professionals, they want their expertise

Blog:Triple AAA- Who am I? (Part 2)

I suspect this could be a series that goes on. And on.  And ooooon.

No, I don’t know who I am.  I know who I have tried to be.  There’s a wardrobe full of suits of clothes, with different names, like I’m some kind of modern day and female Mr Ben.  I can still put each of them on, shrug into it, twitch against the constriction then act out the part.  Well, probably not the

Blog:Triple AAA- My executive function and dysfunction

I can and have sat down with colleagues for an hour, then single handedly turned their vague idea into a multi million pound successful bid, with milestones, deliverables, outputs, costings, business case and cash flow.

I spent most of my twenties hideously in debt because I didn’t understand credit cards and hid my own post from myself.

I studied and researched the legislative processes, guidelines and procedures for access arrangements between estranged parents (subset domestic

Blog:Mama Pineapple- One year on

It’s a whole month since I last wrote a blog post, which seems an awfully long time. A couple of weeks ago, I celebrated one year since it was formally confirmed to me that I’m autistic. I’d been intending to write about it around the date of my “autiversary”, but I’ve been pretty short on time recently. And now it’s a while after the fact, and whilst I’d like to write some kind of lovely
