The Wood For The Trees…

This is going to be a two parter folks. I know, I know. The suspense is killing me too. Well, not to give the game away, but it’s because I didn’t want to overload a post with lots of words and lots of pictures. I’m kind like that. Plus, you may, or may not have noticed I’ve been a bit quiet of late. I could pretend a sparkling social life, or days filled with productivity. Truth is, stuff has been hectic. Hectic stuff, and fluff and nonsense. So I thought I’d come crashing back in with Undiagnosed Day only a few days away (13th April) with less chat, something easier on the eyes.

And who doesn’t love a good trilogy? Not the makers of Miss Congeniality. And Star Wars went all greedy. Inspired by some fellow bloggers, and a sensory room infinity mirror, I thought of all the sides to my child. I often receive letters addressed ‘to the parent/carer of Rufus D’. And they list his complexities. And I have to make phonecalls, and write emails, detailing his failings in order to garner the right support. And often I have to cope with the harder side of his complexities. And here, here I get to crow like the proud mother I am about my child. So that’s it. Like the title says, sometimes I sit back with a brew and make sure I can see the wood, and the birds happily chirruping in it. And avoid the coppices.

  1. This is so touching. My son has his challenges as well. I’ve never allowed myself to sit and write them out because I choose to focus on the “In glorious technicolor” version of him, but I really needed to see something like this. My heart was breaking for you by the time I got to figure 2, maybe projecting a bit of my pain, but it is all about perspective. Thank you , thank you for sharing this.
