About Me: Female, 51, United Kingdom, member since Apr 2008
Mum of two kids. One NT (10), one on the spectrum (8).
Married to a crazy meditteranean type (Greek).

House is always a mess! I need a wife (or lottery win) to clean it up.
I have a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia (finally diagnosed after 25 years).
Your child sounds like my daughter. Her sensory issues are not as pronounced. Sometimes loud noises(never covers ears), and picky eating. She is very affectinate, hangs out with adults, avoids kids. She has difficulty with pragmatic and expressive speech, and won't turn her head when call her( it takes about 3 times if she is doing something. She is 3 years 11 months and still not potty trained. I would like to pick your brain about good treatment options. She seems to have so much potential. I must admit I did grieve for the loss of the child I thought I had. It hurt very deeply. I can't wait for the first she tell my wife or I that she loves us.......without prompting.
