MY Autistic Daughter

My Daughter is 13 and the joy of my life. Ever since she was diagnosed with PDD-Nos 3 years ago, she has taught me so much, Patience, Tolerance, Love, and what it means to be a child like her. Of course there are some negative things as well; She wants to be independent; but doesn't have the skills of being safe as much as she thinks she does. There are some characteristics of her that are those of a much younger child of about 5-6 yrs of age and I worry about her. So if there is any ways of her being independent, there is a lot of work to do with her. I will protect her for as long as I can.
 For the first 10 years of her life, I always knew something was wrong with her, but the damn doctor always told me otherwise, oh she'll grow out of it, some kids are just like that, blah blah blah...right, and then we finally got referred to a decent pediatrician and a new doctor and things finally started falling in to place, tests were being done, answers were being made and I was no longer in the dark, but 10 years? come on, I was not happy about that, all the waiting lists, all the unanswered questions, if we would have gotten answers sooner, it probably would have been easier to work with her.
Anyhow, She is a huge joy with a smile on her face that brightens up any room. A little Comedian, loves the drama and music, I know she will go far in her life as she gets older, and make almost everyone in her life feel good. The Goddess has definitely given me a very special child to take care of and nurture and I promise I will do whatever it takes to keep my girls safe and happy.

My New Positive Thoughts Chant

I came up with this yesterday when those wretched Negative thoughts started to enter my mind again, I kept chanting this and I feel so much better, so if any one needs a change of thinking, give this a try;

Negative Thoughts go away, be gone, leave this place, be out of my space.
Only Positive thoughts headed my way, only good ones upon this day.

My Thoughts on American Idol

This season is far more better than any other year, don't get me wrong I loved Simon Cowell, but I'm finding the new judges Steven and JLo are awesome, they bring a better atmosphere to the show, not to mention this year's top 13 are really good, a few I can say I'm not a big fan of and I haven't really found any female performers that stuck out, yet. There are 3 men I'm hoping that will make it to the finals; James Durbin, Scotty McCreary, and Casey Abrams, these guys really amaze me with their performances. LOVE THEM.

I'm wondering how next week will go, maybe one or two females might catch my eye, but I'm not gonna keep my fingers crossed

Hi and welcome to my first blog

This is my first Blog, so bear with me as I learn how to use this thing. My writer's block is slowly coming to an end, it has been awhile since I've been able to write anything at all, I'm hoping that doing this will help clear up any more blocks that I may have.

So I have a list of topics that I might want to try my writing skills at and those might include parenting an autistic child, well really a teenager now, but its all the same. Different types of recipes that I've come up with cause I love experimenting with different ingredients, sometimes they turn out delicious and sometimes not. These recipes  include tea recipes, dinners, breakfasts, lunches, etc...I also want to include some rituals,spells, etc... that I have already written that I want to share. OMG, there are so many things that I have ideas for, but I don't want to do just random things, But being ADD, my brain jumps all over the place like some of you already know and I might just want to write about different things, so you never know.

So there you have it, my very first blog and I hope you enjoy what's to come in future
