    Hi there...

    I think a dx is rather like a breavement you have to go through all the stages of emotions and feels before final acceptance. Things do get better. <'> <'> <'> Clare

    New to all this

    Hello there, welcome to the forum Clare
  5. Sorry no advice but we have had the sock and pants issue for years, currently down to one pair of pants and 3 pairs of socks !!! Clare x x x
  6. Joy, Can really empathise, my son used to hate being away from me and worried all the time something bad would happen. At his worse we got to the stage where he would not leave the family home for fear that something bad would happen. Please do speak to camhs about this, maybe they could try CBT. I must say though in our own personal situation things did not improve until much later when we finally got him to the right school for him and built a routine around it. His new school are focusing on gaining his trust and ensuring his emotional needs are met its all making such a difference. Please remember you ar not alone and that you will find someone who will listen and not say he's attention seeking or its a parenting issue. <'> <'> <'>
  7. Awwwww as one of OJ's fans I too am disappointed The road to stardom is never an easy one, the future is a long way off for OJ and I just know its going to be a bright and starry one for him. <'> <'> <'> <'> <'> hugs for you both. Clare x x x

  13. What an awful situation to be in, you must feel torn apart and so very let down. The authority do have funding for specialist education its just that you have to prove the "need". In a way you can only really prove this by evidencing that every avenue has been explored, like PWP say, with your son trying out the new arrangement. However been in a very simular situation as yourself, I can totally understanding how difficult this can be and how damaging it could to the child. I feel quite strongly that we should not have to use our child as a "guinea pig" putting them into extremely difficult situations where we know they will fail, not cope or meltdown just to prove what we as parents already know. I would have dearly loved my son to attend regular mainstream school, but knew in my heart and my head it was not going to work, he was a square peg in a round hole and would continue to suffer and probably end up drowning in an environment that appeared totally alien to him. I assure you it can be done, we found the "right" school for him and yes it is expensive, but I don't care about the cost and to be honest don't know or even want to know how much it costs, why should I be made to feel guilty, I care about my son's education which he has a legal right too. The education authority I found don't bode well to cristisim and can only suggest yu play them at their own game, be willing to try short term but bcak up with lots of evidence.......sorry waffle on a bit there, sorry but this is a subject I am very passionate about. Stay strong and remember no one knows you child better than you and don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. Clare x x x

    Hiya and Welcome, Some very good comments above, I hope feel you better about the situation as the pregnancy progresses, think being a parent for the first time is pretty scarey for anyone. Clare
