Hello all. It has been quite some time since I have posted here or on my social medias and I do apologize for that. It seems I have been struggling with a thing called life, and laundry but that’s another story.
In the past few months we have had our first hospital trip for a piece of metal in Bug’s eye (how in the…??!!!!), readjusting our school days and teachers, have had more than enough sick days to last a year, had the first kid-free overnight in six years, and so much more. So many meetings and classes and presentations and places to be and things to do. It is hard to do all that and run a blog/social media, so I took a break from it before it broke me.
I may continue to take a break from documenting our homeschooling, especially on Facebook since the algorithms were changed and small pages like mine may not be seen much anymore. I am focusing more on my first responder presentations and contacting people to get them involved with trainings as well. I can’t do it all, and I don’t want to push too hard in several directions at once.
So there is a little blog-y update, a little life-y update. But there is an update I would like to share with you. An update that has just reaffirmed my belief that homeschool is what is best for Bug. An update that has answered a lot of questions, and has made me breathe a little easier.
While I have known for a while I have a laundry list of issues including anxiety, depression, OCD, dyscalculia, and onychotillomania; I never really thought to delve deeper. After many sessions, it has been determined that I am on the autism spectrum, specifically Aspergers. Daddy is going to be evaluated as well because we are very similar and he shows a lot of the same characteristics.
A weight was lifted when she told me that. I have always know I was different, I never fit in, I was weird (which is a good thing!), I thought differently, I did things differently. I am different. I just like to have a name for it. A label if you will.
So with life being the way it is, it looks like I will be back with you guys intermittently. I still strive to share our homeschool, autism, feeding issue journey with you and will share when my head isn’t moments away from exploding. I may choose sleep over writing a blog, but it is always in the back of my mind.
I enjoy this, I love to share and I will continue to do so, but I won’t beat myself up if I don’t publish something every week.
Enjoy the ones you’re with, I have been. ❤
