Keeping my teenager busy is exhausting!

Wed 22 Apr 2015 10:56pm

I am exhausted trying to keep my 13 year old daughter occupied, it's like having a toddler again, she follows me around wanting to "do something" all the time.  She has not had a diagnosis but I suspect she is on the spectrum.  She has a SEN and only attends tution for an hour a day at a private educational provision.  I woner if there is anyone else out there in a similar position to me?  Would love to chat x

Need to move out

Tue 21 Apr 2015 6:55am

I am so upset and frustrated and I hate my mum right now and feel very upset. I got caught out lying and now I have nowhere to hide because I have to live in this stupid house and if they weren't so nosy and intrusive I wouldn't have had to lie in the first place if they could keep their noses out. I am so upset and angry because it is their fault I had to lie. I am waiting for a girl to move out of a flat with support but she is taking so long to find somewhere to move to I am feeling very angry towards her too because I JUST WANT TO GET OUT.

Asperger support in the Chigwell area

Tue 14 Apr 2015 6:05pm

A relative of mine has recently been diagnosed with Asperger's in his 30s, and I am looking for some information to pass on to him. I think it would be very beneficial for him to meet others with Asperger's. He lives in Chigwell, but he does not drive. Though he is able to travel into London by train, so groups there may actually be more convenient than in other areas of Essex.

Another Adult diagnosis?

Thu 12 Mar 2015 10:30pm

Hi, I have just been to see my GP today after struggling with the idea of this for the past 6 or so years. I haven't come to this conclusion lightly, have had many talks with my Mum about my childhood and many conversations in my own head about it as well as doing a number of online tests which I score quite highly on. I find social situations extremely difficult, I have always mimicked but this does not always come off well for me, I tend to butt into conversations or say inappropriate things just for the sake of 'talking' and fitting in.

Tue 10 Mar 2015 11:03pm

Worried about taking my daughter for assement I am her appointed as she has significant leaning difficulties and ASD  don't know how she is going to react as even going to the doctors is stressful and although I have given them all relevant upto date information can not believe she is going to be put through this stressful situation !
