Yay Davros! Without MNSN I would be LoonyMama whose pathological anxieties are creating illness in her maladjusted dc. With it, I'm just SlightlyLoopyMama with mostly healthy, mostly happy, mainly non-NT dc. Who all appear oblivious to her maternal anxiety
I'm probably not very familiar to any if you but have been on MN for nearly 10 years. DS (severe ASD) is nearly 18. I used to be a prolific poster on SN some years ago. I think MN SN is amazing and you girls still teach me stuff. I always recommend it to newbies. These days I usually go straight to Telly Addicts, how times have changed! One day you too may go to Telly Addicts or the equivalent instead of SN, just think!
I am a bit late to this thread, and I havent been on MN much recently, but the past 2.5 years have been hell, and I have received more support and advice from MN than anywhere. Thanks to MN I am able to kick the schools arse on a regular basis and my lovely DS has a Statement and loads of support. Thanks all.
Poltergoose: sometimes just saying 'me too' is enough to make a difference
God yes! ^ ^
If it hadn't been for this board, and certain posters particularly, I would not have started the most amazing help for ds, wouldn't have got such a good statement, wouldn't have had the strength to fight, wouldn't have known where to start with anything, and wouldn't have anyone to make me feel better just by knowing someone else 'gets it' too.
My belated new year's resolution is to try and give as much help here as I have received.
A lovely thread to see after some of the discord in the campaign thread.
I would have been utterly lost without all the geese on this board, to give advice, support, hold my hand and generally always be there, with a kind hand and a wise word.
It has been an awful few weeks, with ds in hospital and some serious concerns over his lungs, and as lovely as my rl friends are, there is only one who really 'gets it', but, as always my mnsn friends have been by my side.
Thankyou, especially lovely mnetter who called earlier to see how I was
I agree. I have learnt so much from reading here. I am about to start the statement process with DD and am feeling completely over awed with the whole thing and out of my depth. But all along I've been thinking - it's alright I'll post on MNSN and they will help me work it out.
I don't post often, but I read a lot and it really does help
