Went to Afasic meeting tonight and as the current chairwoman wants to stand down they want me to take on her role!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now I said I'd think about it but they said as I am running the support group at dd's SAL unit I would be idea. So probably will, but how scary is that????
Also found the meeting quite depressing. Some of there children are 16 and things like getting a Saturday job seem impossible. I keep telling myself that I will worry about that in 10 years time when dd is 16!
Very reassuring was that one lad who is 14 has a girlfriend and another who has similar difficulties to dd (I saw him tonight but have seen him before) is doing so, so well. It's very re-assuring although know I have a very rocky road ahead. It's just so nice talking to people that understand

Wow BH! That's so great but don't do it unless you really feel you can. I know what you mean about these things sometimes being depressing as you are made to look at possibilities you can normally avoid It does get easier to become "immune" to being too affected by others' situations without getting hardened to them iyswim.
Oooh, Chairwoman Bloss, very impressive.
