Boom.


Surely that would only work if they'd wrote "aah-oh-eh-oh"?

Thinking about my little boy a lot at the moment. After a meeting with the nursery earlier this week, he'll soon be undergoing external monitoring for social development problems, and while its still very much early days, having looked at the check list and listened to some of the issues outlined by the teachers, I think we could be looking at an Autism Spectrum diagnosis somewhere down the line. In many ways this is a good thing if he can get help (and it doesn't appear to be hindering his intellectual development, which is above average in many ways), but I do feel for him; the anger and confusion he currently appears to be experiencing in social circles must be daunting and there's not much I can do at the moment, just have to have confidence in the education and health specialists until we know a wee bit more.

My thoughts are with you and your wee 'un, Reb - because that's exactly what we went through when Jr was about the same age. If you don't mind my asking, what was it that clued you in? With us, it was his lack of speech development. By the time he got to nursery he was just still nowhere where he should have been at his age. And once we started down that road and flagged up our concerns, specialists started to point out things that we were completely oblivous to; his lack of eye contact for more than a second or two, and his general social interaction was problematic. So they examined him in and out of nursery, several times, and it did come back that he has autism.

I guess what I would say is that autism is a scary word at first. Like, he's AUTISTIC and DIFFERENT. But the key word, for me at any rate, is 'spectrum'. Your boy could be low-end spectrum like Jr is and that is obviously easier to cope with. I can't deny that it was like a kick in the stomach when we got the official diagnosis and I worried like hell about him. Hearing the doctor say he would probably struggle to make friends broke my heart. But my advice is never underestimate the resilience of kids at his age. He's at his local junior school now and has fitted in almost perfectly. For a child that did struggle to socialise at nursery, he's come on leaps and bounds and goes between three different best friends each day. One of them's a girl, too. His teachers aren't especially concerned and although, to my ears and eyes, he still has moments where I think he's displaying tendencies, that could be just because I know what his diagnosis is. If a complete stranger just met him...I don't think they would know.

I suppose my main advice in this situation is that it's a very, very good thing they're diagnosing it early. I completely get the confusion and anger thing he has (we used to get reports from nursery that he would screech at the other children if they took a toy away from him or got to close), but that can pass and fade as he develops, and it's difficult as a parent to keep calm about that. But just like he finds it easier to cope with, you will too - almost to the point of being blase about it. Perseverance and patience are the key, and hopefully you have a good support network where you are to aid you.

Best of luck with it, though. If you ever want a private chat about it, you know where to find me.

^ This, this right here. This is what this forum is about.

Sure, it's about films, it's about discussing them and loving them and, yes, occasionally, hating them.

But more than that it's a network of people who over time have gotten to know each other and help each other. It pre-dates most of the popular social networks around today. And while many of us have connected on other social networks and even IN REAL LIFE, we still come back here.

Thoughts with you Reb. Even if you do hate on my drawing skills.

Thanks Matty, I knew you'd understand given your own situation. I guess there have been a few warning signs that are now starting to come together. His speech was a little delayed, but he had a tongue tie that recently snapped and we've seen huge improvements since then, but socially we started to get reports from the nursery of him hitting other children. His dad and I worked really hard on curtailing that (he's always been on the aggressive side, even since he was a baby, but we were hoping it was something he'd grow out of) and while there have been off days, he's shown a lot of improvement there too. However, the hitting has transformed itself in social distancing, complaining to the teachers regularly if anyone goes near him, wants to share anything or sometimes just brushes past him. I'd started to notice in the play ground that he was often sitting on his own, and he never mentions any other children by name when I chat to him about his day at school, other than to say they were annoying him, or dismissing them as stupid. We changed his nursery school after Christmas because I'd moved house and the commute was just too much, so I suppose for a while I was putting these things down to adjusting to the new place, but I now realise there was more to it than that - when I went to see his Christmas play at the old place, the two nursery classes were joined together and there was a lot of children. Wee man stood way back from everything going on, looking very vexed, and complained afterwards about the noise, which he's done several times since when there are large groups.

It is a shame, because when he does have one on one time with other children he can be very attached, almost to the point of obsession. He's devoted to his cousins, talks about them constantly, and has really grown attached to my partners son, who I think likes him, but could never quite set himself at ease with the way my son constantly wants to play with him, never understanding personal space or 'alone' time. Hopefully we can get him to understand why he's formed such an attachment now (he's three years older than my boy so he should be able to take the situation in) and they can get on a bit better.

I hope it goes well for you Reb. A friend I used to work with went through much of this with her grandson - they didn't think it could be anything initially because, like your little 'un, he was well above average in terms of brightness. But it was the social side that raised the queries. They called his particular area high functioning Aspergers (Canadian might be a bit different) not autistic as such - I think the difference along the scale is in interaction and need for routine? It can't be great having to sort this out while also reassuring him about the new baby.

My mum has apparently had a small stroke overnight (I'm guessing right at the end of the range as it's really only manifesting itself in dizziness and room spinning) and I can't go up to see her because after my turn I'm not really supposed to be driving.

The things I've put in blocks are the things that we went through with Jr. When they had Father Christmas visit them last year at nursery, he sat at the back with his back turned, looking at me and his nana instead. And at the first couple of birthday parties he was invited to, he'd do the same. Sit right at the back, or on my knee, and not get involved. However, he has improved. He's close to a couple of kids now, so is happy to sit next to them, laugh and muck about and although when he has to join in with clapping and shouting or whatever if they have a disco, he's quite timid with it, but much better than he was.

One other thing I would say is trust your gut instinct as a parent. Even when I was preparing myself for the diagnosis, I knew that it would be fairly low on the spectrum and it was never a behavioural issue - he never gets freaked out in supermarkets by large crowds or if certain things aren't in a certain way. I'd say he has mild OCD, but nothing that stops him living his life pretty normally.

The interesting thing is how much more quickly they can diagnose autism now, and how many more children fall into the spectrum, than before because a lot of it would simply be dismissed as odd or bad behaviour. Reading up on it and there's arguments that *everyone* is autistic to some degree. It feels uncomfortable if you've got your mobile and wallet in a different trouser pocket to what they normally are? That's autism. According to some research, anyway, and that's why I've put one bit in italics - because that was me. At nursery, I refused point blank to socialise, turned my back on all the other kids to sit and read in the corner and did indeed tell my mother they were all stupid. I say this with the straightest of faces, but I do think I would have been diagnosed as being autistic if they tested for such a thing back in the day.

And in a weird way, that's pretty comforting because I've turned out OK.

Well, ish.

Thank you

I'm hoping it is low end. I've spoken to her now. and she sounded fine (and dad says there isn't the physical thing in the face to look at her) so the GP thinks it's a mini one and she's off to the hosp to get the scans. The scary part is the bit where it says this might be a risk of a major one I guess.

I'm being taking up there tomorrow when I go to the GP myself, so I can see here then. But I'm glad she was able to talk on the phone.

Sorry to hear this elab, this must've given the whole family a fright. That, combined with what you've already been through together and what you're dealing with just now... Sheesh. I hope you're mum recovers from it quickly, and I hope you're coping ok. Did you get on ok with the results yesterday?

Reb, sorry to hear about the young lad too. I don't have kids myself, so can't understand what it must be like, but I do know the main hopes are always to have happy and healthy kids and anything that impinges on that can cause a lot of concern and distress. I certainly think chatting to other parents in the same situation (like matty.... but not him, because, come on you can do better surely?) is probably one of the best things you can do since you'll be able to relate to each other. And it might assuage any big fears and causes of anxiety.

So sorry to hear about your mum Elab. It's lucky you were able to diagnose the attack. We found out too late that my Gran was suffering from mini-strokes which caused her vascular dementia. I hope she recovers soon. Seeing a loved one go through that is a special kind of pain.

At the moment we're waiting for some kind of confirmation. They admitted her to hospital last night and don't want to let her out till after the weekend as they've still to confirm what happened. Today she spent in MRIs and ENT stuff. She seems to be steadying though - just can't look down without feeling woozy.

If this is a warning of possibly worse to come, I'm hoping this does mean forewarned is forearmed, as you say

Yeah exactly, you know she's at risk of these kind of attacks now and you can keep your eye out for signs of another one (hopefully something that won't happen). Sounds like the doctors have it all in hand. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

They didn't give the answer so given the clusterfuck of symptoms they've gone with viral infection. Which I may buy as my husband was talking to someone in work who seems to have had something very similar (including the oddness of the severe pain in the side which didn't feel all that viral to me) and was also told likely viral - I guess the virus fecked up bits of the insides causing the pain.

Did yours go OK?

Which I may buy as my husband was talking to someone in work who seems to have had something very similar (including the oddness of the severe pain in the side which didn't feel all that viral to me) and was also told likely viral - I guess the virus fecked up bits of the insides causing the pain.

Did yours go OK?




Oy vey, that's frustrating, to not really have a solid answer. Have they given you anything to help clear it up then? And have you been feeling any better in the past few days, or still the same?

Yeah, mine was just low iron thanks. The doctor apologised for the unnecessary worry, she said she wasn't in on the day my results had come back but said the other doc should have just written it on the letter they sent (since it was something fairly insignificant), especially given my recent history.

Not anaemic thankfully, just a bit on the low side, so I have pills to pop to sort me out.

That's great news for the results - and also that the doc understands these waits are very unfair.

I do feel better - less dizzy, nauseous and the pain has reduced. I need to make myself eat though - no appetite at all, partly because of how I feel afterwards. But he was pleased it was clearly improving. He offered to prescribe something for the digestive side but I've had it before and preffered not if things were getting better, but I've to go back Tuesday if the improvement doesn't continue.

I understand how hard that is, it's a vicious circle. Your body can't recover/get better if you don't eat, but because you feel so ill you just have no appetite or desire to get the nutrients inside. Horrible. Hope it picks up soon. And I'm glad you're feeling better, hopefully you continue to improve!

Thanks, I'm dragging this birthday out over the whole weekend! I don't ever celebrate birthdays, but for obvious reasons, this one is a bit special to me.

So tonight will be the third night in a row I'll have gone out.

Does Jaime Murray's US career seem to only consist of her taking her clothes off in some form or another?
