***********************
Before I get started with my own dirty secret, I know for a fact that a few of my sponsors are spilling the beans today too!  Here are a few teasers from their posts...
"No one pulling down the shirt or lifting up my shirt, or poking me on my butt, or on my boobs, or hitting my glasses off my face, or head butting me.  You get the idea.  No I'm not talking about my husband.  I welcome these from him. ;)  hahaha!" 
"I have a novel idea!!"
"Get me a paper bag I'm going to throw up break down." 
"I love Robert Pattinson"
 Can you guess which sponsor is spilling which dirty secret?
Visit Beth, Leigh-Ellen, Salena and Lindsay to find out!

Now, for my secret...

May 2012 has been overwhelming for us… for me.
I think I'm in denial. Or shock?  I don't know.

Memphis was diagnosed recently as autistic… and ever since I heard the words I was expecting to hear… it doesn't seem real. Like it's all a mistake & he's really okay!

I feel lost in my feelings about the whole thing. I've only cried once… I mean, in the grand scheme of things, the diagnosis doesn't change him or how we feel about him, right? And there are FAR worse things he could ''have.'' I might seem calm & accepting… but I'm not.  I keep wondering why, and what it all means.  With this diagnosis it means he'll get the extra help he needs to be successful in school & in life… but I want it all to just go away.  Kids have it hard enough already.

This isn't a pity party.
Venting a little and knowing it's okay to be upset with all this FEELS GOOD.

I know a lot of you are probably going through struggles none of us know about... and I just want you to know that you're not alone.   It's no secret what we've gone through with Memphis, but I am admitting, publicly, that I just haven't figured it all out yet... and I'm still reeling from this diagnosis.

Oh, and if you want a really juicy secret… let it be known I bought 3 pairs of control-top ''granny panties'' last weekend and I LOVE THEM!

  1. You are right - it is OK to be upset and wonder what in the heck you are going to do. Based on the experiences of my friends who have kids with autism, it looks like you have early diagnosis in your favor. I know that they make a point to stay on top of school and how it is going, and are very strong advocates for their kids in their schools. Great things are possible - but you may need to give a little push to get them to happen - I think lots of school districts don't intend to be contrary or unhelpful - I think they sometimes just don't know how to help most effectively - and of course no one knows Memphis better than you do! You are going to be a key partner in his education! Knowledge is power - and now that you all know what kinds of support he might need, you will be able to see that he gets it, and continues to grow into a lovely and successful human being! That being said - you should feel free to vent away here whenever you want - I bet many of your followers have lots of good and helpful experiences to share about their own experiences in helping their autistic children thrive! (Wow, this was a long post!)

  9. 점을 보완하여 Cytotec 양자대결이나 라이벌 대결 등으로 사전에 10점을 심사위원 Obat Penggugur 재량으로 줄 수 있는 권한까지 부여하였다. 그러함에도 불구하고 Obat Telat Bulan 실력면에서 상대적으로 월등한 송희진의 3강에서 결승에 오르지 못하자 Obat Cytotec 심사위원들은 멘붕에 빠졌다
