Does anyone else around here have a nonverbal child? My autistic son is almost six, and he stopped speaking several years ago after a seizure. It makes a lot of everyday things difficult; it's hard to know what he wants and he...

cynicalandoutspoken I work with autistic children and two of them are nonverbal. One is 14 and 1 is 5. I can tell you that it does get easier as he gets older but Im sure that is a small ray of hope right now. I've learned to watch their facial expressions. The way you and I...

They say that into every life, some rain must fall. But hells bells, into some people's lives it never seems to do anything but pour! All of us suffer losses of one kind or another at various times in our lives. And because...

Last year the British Meteorological Office (Met O) forecast a "Barbecue Summer" of endless long days of warm sun and high (for us) temperatures. Unfortunately we had rain and not a lot of sun. The Met O took a lot of criticism...

cynicalandoutspoken I want to be a meteorologist. They are the only people who can be WRONG all the time and never lose their job. Yeah, I'm ready for summer but like you said, if it is anything like last summer it is going to rain 3-5 days a week. But I don't have to shovel...

cynicalandoutspoken If you get any good ideas let me know! My husbands birthday is in 13 days and I have NO IDEA what to get him. I never do. He doesn't like to celebrate his birthdays and doesn't want a big deal made out of it. I usually just cook him one of his favorite dinners...

The UK medical authorities have refused to allow all children to be immunised against chicken pox on the grounds of cost and the fear that it might induce shingles when the child is older. The real concern apparently is that they...

cynicalandoutspoken The shot is given to children here and has been for decades yet I still got the chicken pox when I was in 5th grade. My avatar has had the shot and a classmate got the pox last November and infected 3 other children in the class. But my baby wasn't one of...

cynicalandoutspoken I was on comp from March of 2006 until the comp company finally settled with me in August of 2009. That was the longest 3 years of my life! But I can tell you that during that time I was ordered to go back to work by the comp companys doctors 4 different times...

cynicalandoutspoken I couldn't tell you the difference in one bike from another even with road bikes. Because all I know is that after 12 miles on the stationary or 15 minutes on the road your butt will hurt so badly that you would rather walk barefoot over hot coals then pedal...

When I am having "E" discussions on Skype for example, people, including me, often say "Just a Minute" or "BRB (Be Right Back))" because they need to do something. But have you ever noticed just how long a "minute" can be? How...

cynicalandoutspoken I usually say BRB and tell them what I am going to do because I know from experience a minute is never enough time to do anything. I have to pause talking on the computer to let the dog in and out, help my avatar to the potty, grab something to eat, etc... and...

cynicalandoutspoken I don't see a reason to celebrate being one year closer to dying. lol I typically stay in on my birthday or my sweetie takes me out to see a movie or something but it's never a celebration. I think it is very sweet of you to cook her dinner. Finish the night...
