Unfortunately I didn't realise that not all calories are created equal and continued to eat crap, thinking that as long as I could fit it into my daily cal...

I love the internet...I avoid most of the social networking stuff as it's not for me. I do have Facebook because I use the message service and like some of the 'pages', but that's it. I have most of my 'friends' on ignore so I'm not having to put up with any of the 'this was my lunch today!' nonsens...

I'm not sure. I had a really bad experience when I was 21 and couldn't trust any kind of health professional for years, but then my son needed some help and his psychiatrist was wonderful. That's what gave me the courage to go and ask for a referral for myself.

Break and lunch times were okay until P6 - I spent a lot of time under a huge tree in the playground. I also had a couple of friends in the two years below me and so spent time with them. During class time it was different, I had no friends. No one would sit next to me in class or on the bus on scho...

My son went to a Language and Communication Unit which was attached to a mainstream primary school. There were just six autistic kids in that class and it was wonderful, absolutely the right place for him. He stayed there until the end of P4 at which point they decided he could cope with mainstream ...

I DO take offense to being called Mentally Ill, considering that I have invested a hell of a lot more time into research/studying things than the average 100 sheeple combined , plus the fact that my IQ now well-exceeds 140 in addition to my being multi-lingual.
