My Blogging Buddies

Welcome! Come on in and have a seat! This is my blog roll.

Bloggers: If you want to be on my blog roll, this is what you do... Say so. Otherwise, I don't know what to tell you.

I would like to say that here, in my house (which would be my blog), anything goes. except cigarette sales. or viagra. or dating sites. because those are just annoying. and I will delete them. Everyone is welcome and yes, you fit. Living on the Spectrum, Living with the Spectrum, Teaching the Spectrum, Advocating for the Spectrum (PCA, that would be you, too)... wherever you are, you belong here. Don't have anything to do with the Spectrum? You like the ADHD instead? That's cool. Jump on in. House Keeping? I totally need you. Organized Living- oh, please? Everyday Cooking? *cough*renee*cough* yup, that too.

Friends: because I like thinking of my readers as friends because if I was expected to be talking to 'people', I would clam up. true story. and because you are cool. I like you. Roam around. Check them out. See what you like. Go say hi.

  6. Hi all! I write over at http://balancedimperfection.blogspot.com

    On my blog I share a little bit about whatever is going on in our life at the time. For me, trying to find balance between work, family, and all other aspects of my life is a constant challenge. And parenting both an adolescent NT girl and a little guy on the autism spectrum can be a bumpy ride. I'm coming to terms with the fact that I'm not perfect, and I don't have to be! I love my kids, and do the best I can. I know I'll make mistakes along the way - hopefully I'll learn something from them.

  8. Me Me ME! I write over at http://www.confessionsofanaspergersmom.blogspot.com
    I have two teenage boys with Aspergers...PDD-NOS or whatever it's being called these days. They are 17 and nearly 14 and they could not be more different. The thing they have in common is that they both drive me nuts. I try to use a bit of humor otherwise I would probably just drink myself to death to get through these teen years.

Me, I am a fairly severe depressive and mildly OCD 43 year old woman kept in a state of moderate control with medication, I am married, heterosexual, monogamist, atheist, sarcastic, creative, a crafter, have a high IQ and low ambitions. I like to think I am more than the sum of my parts. What that more is, I am still working out.

I blog about life raising a young child with special needs with honesty, optimism, and - and always - the occasional touch of humor.

  13. Jennifer blogs at http://www.fastenherseatbelt.com/

    Jennifer lives in Northeast Ohio with her husband, and is the proud mother of three beautiful girls: Frannie (9), Emma (10), and Isabella (22). She is an artist, fine jeweler and educator. Emma was diagnosed with an ASD at age 4 and Frannie was diagnosed with ADHD and Dyslexia at age 6.
    With Emma fast approaching adolescence, Jennifer found there was not much information available for ‘girls, autism and adolescence’, thus ‘Fasten Her Seatbelt’ was born. Using ‘Fasten Her Seatbelt as a vehicle to re-account life experiences both past and present, Jennifer hopes to connect with other parents on the same journey. So, hop on in and join her as she travels the world of adolescence on the spectrum


    She runs the facebook page http://www.facebook.com/fastenherseatbelt#!/fastenherseatbelt

  16. Well, if you're looking for a blog written by a divorced mom of 6 kids on the spectrum (screw the DSM-V) who is the non-custodial parent of said kids but still loves them and suffers with them. Oh and who just moved to an island with her Mr. Big and is dealing with the whole transition then that's me. I'm a crazy basket case that writes because I can't afford therapy.
