I have not been blogging very much as of late. Not for my own personal blogs, my Autism Blogs, or here. I think I just lost a bit of a drive to communicate. Usually I write the most when I am really passionate about something, usually a feeling. Things have been fairly calm for me and Michael the last two months.
Dating back, my tests came back clean, no cancer, tumors, or anything really. The medication I am on helps somewhat, but I am horrible at taking it every day. It is really gritty. I need to try to take it every day so I can honestly say if it is helping when I go back in. I also have some liver tests go a little shady. So I have been avoiding the drink. ok I rarely drink anyways.
Michael and I had a home visit with his teacher yesterday. He is doing really well in group work. He loves projects and crafts. Apparently him and a little boy even played a board game all on their own together taking turns. He is dependent on his teachers, very attatched. But he has another year of preschool with him. That will mean he got 2 1/2 year rather than just one. And most likely he will continue on in Special Education in Kindergarten. I think I am ok with that too.
I really wanted to try going back to school this fall. I have been waiting for an update from the Student Loans so I could get the dollar amount for my defferrment papers. Well the reason I was never getting the papers was because they sent me to collections. So now I have no idea what I can do. The amount on the loans is nearly my annual income.
I may be able to go back to work this fall too. If I can find a good daycare. Michael will go at least one day a week, and probably on early outs. It would be great if I could work at one of the schools so it is same days as Michael, no worries about Snow Days. But jobs here are becoming scarse. Unless I want to go back to Fast Food...
I am really annoyed with the clinic here in town that does all of Michael's stuff. Turns out the woman CAN'T even give an official diagnosis. And she is calling Michael's KIDS PROGRAM (which is like a family support program) to ask about his meds instead of me. I am going to harrass our family doctor next month for a referral to Sioux Falls. Their clinic is not connected to Spencer so it will be all new records and such. I want a diagnosis....
