    Honestly... A game changer. In just 3 days he was able to think and reason. He had conversations with mum and I on things other than terraria. He was able to joke and play with the dog, and he's eating again.

    He even told me yesterday morning that he was 'surprised' he felt well, cause he had felt sick the other night. When I asked him what the sick felt like he explained sleepiness!!! His eyes were heavy and his body didn't want to do anything. Lmfao
    Perhaps this is why his sleep has been terrible... He didn't actually experience sleepiness cause he was just too anxious!

    Hey pvroom.
    I feel for you. It's not easy.
    Tell us how it goes and come to us if you need to vent.
    One day at a time.


    Tomorrow is the last day of the holidays. As far as holidays goes. This has been one of the better ones.
    My Dh has taken the boys to S.A to see his family for 4 days. They come back tomorrow. Another stressful holiday for him as his family caused more drama concerning our boys...
    I am enjoying my last 12hrs of quiet time. It's been good even though I have been struggling with sleep because the house is so empty and quiet.

    Good luck with the diagnostic process pvroom. Hopefully it opens some doors to extra assistance for your family and your youngest. It sounds like it's been a challenging period for you

    Sorry to hear about the family dramas again WhiteMage. Must have been tough for your DH to deal with.
    Did you get some time to enjoy the peace and quiet while they were away at least?

    School's back here today. Both kids went happily which was nice. DD has her first school camp this term. Must organise a meeting with her teacher to discuss.
    I also found out today that I'll be starting a new job next week. It will mean before and after school care for the kids a couple of days. I'm hoping it's not too much for DD It's a long day of social interactions and sensory overload but time will tell I guess.

    My 4 days alone was so quiet, the nights were hard, so used to the noises of my DH staying up at a ridiculous time. I had to put a light on in the house and have like Friends running all night just to give the illusion I wasn't alone.
    I did however manage to unwind a little, I enjoyed some food that I wouldn't normally get to eat, and went out for one evening with my sister and step dad, Went to Bingo.. Nothing exciting, they both really like the game.
    I also managed to finish some crochet.
