It's all getting a bit much!

We're not supposed to whinge, and complain, are we. Everything is supposed to be rosy in social media!

Well do you know what?

I don't care!!!

It's all getting a bit much in Ojo's little world, my world. I am bloody stressed, mentally frazzled. It's not even that anything is going wrong, as such, just everything is happening.

As you know, if you read this, I have 3 sons, 2 of which are on the autistic spectrum. 1 high functioning (who seems to be getting easier, as he's getting older), the other with related difficulties. 
We did not, however, expect those related difficulties to include physical issues. Suddenly we are back in the system, with various appointments with physios, podiatrists and a musculoskeletal expert!? I mean, what the hell? That's my baby, he's perfect to me! However, I can see the problem, his knees, ankles and hips are twisted. So now it's back down another long road for my beautiful boy. 

Then there's my eldest boy. He has always been an anxious boy, this has gotten worse as he got older. However, that we dealt with, he got support, from the Dr and us, thankfully. The other thing we've always known is that biggest boy was very bendy. A few years ago a physio told him he had hyper mobility, we didn't think much of it at the time.

Until he fell over, a couple of weeks ago.

A simple fall, mucking about with his friends, has led to several hospital appointments, that are ongoing. Along with a strong recommendation for his HM to be properly diagnosed. Apparently, it can take longer for him to heal! I'm scared to google it, to find the full info, I'd rather wait for the Dr to talk me through it.

Oh........Let's not forget Mr. Ojo.

How could we? He's now permanently on crutches, with his knees gradually failing, along with something wrong with his spine that I can't spell, that basically means his lower back is crumbling. Just after Christmas he had a fall, in the bath, and caught his shoulder. It ached for a while, but it was several months before we got to the Dr, she was pretty useless. We waited a while longer, the pain was still there, so we went back and saw a different Dr.

She has now said she thinks he has an impeachment. From what I understand, it means his muscles are pinched(?), and will require physio?!


So I'm flipping knackered, I'm worrying about them all so much, I barely sleep. I never get time to blog, because when I do get 5, I spend it in the gym, the one place I feel I can totally switch off.

So, if I seem quiet..........well, understandable really, isn't it!


  1. Keep on doing what it takes to get yourself through the days, gym or blogging, or napping! Am just hoping you have some good local support, it does all sound like too much :( xx

    1. Coincidentally, I've had a nap & the gym today! Xx
