Hey Guys,

At the risk of sounding silly or self absorbed I think I need to step away for a while.

Frankly I haven't anything to contribute.

If this was the " People Raging Against Poor Care for the Severely Handicapped " Forum, then , yes, but , bless you all, it isn't.

I care about you all very much but I don't find the internet as restful any more. The few witty, well written blogs take about 10 minutes every other day to read. It used to be I could zone out, now , not really, things are more about Instagram or Facebook and I'm not into that, nor do I want to be.

I have a gazillion things that need to be done/because those who are paid £100, 000 a year to do it do not give a flying..........fill in missing word. It sucks the life blood from me. I cannot stand it. Truly. Work is a distraction, a good one, but one I could drop like a rock any day. I have a lovely family that I perhaps do too much for ( that again, linked to what we/I did NOT do for them when DS was little )so I am not alone nor lonely.

I have just had it. It would be nice to not have to rage to accomplish anything. Spent two hours today at " things ". Mindless. The new social worker is part of this. Knowing UTTERLY NOTHING AT ALL of DS, she , is apparently the one who will sort out all DS ills ( we aren't needed apparently ) As she has met him once, a week ago and has no backstory to him.......she obviously cannot do that.

Now , if this were a TV show, it could just run, she'd fail, Ds would get so bad its untrue then WE would step inon our white horses and sort it out and GEE WHIZ, he'd finally get some care and it could be listed as a heart redning feel good drama. But it isn't , DS life is S%$^ and , as his mother, I feel like howling without stopping forever.

My final straw here I mentioned to Jackie.

Love to you all and look after yourselves .

Greetings Friends,

Today was a good Monday. The weekend was good as well. I did some book reading, movie watching, muffin baking - and just generally enjoyed it.

As far as getting "work" done, I got my bedding changed out on Saturday - so nice to get into fresh, clean sheets, pillow cases and blankets. Of course my dogs thought so too - thus the reason I change my bedding so often. I used a coupon code and points to rent two Redbox movies for a total cost of $1.40 - can't beat .70 cents per movie!

Got some cooking done on Sunday - homemade soup and a big pan of roasted cauliflower that I'm using in wraps this week - kind of my own version of a recipe I saw for "buffalo cauliflower tacos".

I am off to browse - goodnight!
