If life wasn't complicated it would have been simple. It's never easy but it gets better. 

Good luck and sorry for my curiosity.

I'll pray for you. :))

Yeh,that's what I thought too Ava,but it does seem a bit stupid when all the toys came out for kids you know the wands and such,he just had the lego hogwarts set for his birthday then they see it advertised on the T.V and ask to go see it,its hard to tell them there too little as the films did start out as kids films.Anyways thanks for your thoughts on it,very much appreciated.

Hi Ava,just noticed your harry potter comment on your status,what I want to ask you is one of my boys loves H.P too and wants to see the new film thing is he's just turned seven,he's seen all the others as we've got the box set but I've noticed that as the young actors have grown up with the films so has the content and the advert seemed a bit too dark if you know what I mean.I just want your opinion on this as you've seen it,do you think he'll be o.k to watch it?

I did not know that about the bipolar disorder stuff.  I am wondering if counseling alone will help with that?  Insurance will cover that, and meds, but will not cover natural remedies, and I cant afford even a bottle of vitamins right now.  I dont know how bad it would be to leave it untreated.  My son was in behavior therapy for 2 years and even though it helped tremendously, getting us to where we are today, insurance stopped covering it. He is in kindergarten this year, mainstream, and doing well enough that I can't get assistance through the school :(

 

My yahoo im is mom2mixedbabies.  Feel free to add me.

OK, got it now!  Not really needing help.  I think I pretty much have this child figured out.  He is soon to be assessed for bipolar disorder/depression.  Once I know if that's an issue, we will be all set!  I am hoping I don't need to medicate him, but if it brings him in to balance I will.  I was really looking for various life's experiences and how they were handled, how people treated you, what could have been done to help you in certain situations.... things like that.  Nothing too specific in mind lol.  We all just want to do what's best for our children, but it's hard when they don't fit the typical child mold.

I am happy to hear that you are working yourself out. That is a beautiful child.

I can certainly relate to the freedom of interacting socially according to what I am really feeling and want to do, vs trying to go through a filter. No more constantly thinking "boys don't do that." If I feel like squealing and jumping, I do it. If I feel like crying, I do it. The liberation is amazing. Life is so wonderful.

Yes, I do intend to get both GRS (gender reassignment surgery) and FFS (facial feminization surgery). The limiting factor on that right now is money, because Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Alabama does not cover ANY transgender treatment.

Interesting side note - BCBS got wind of my gender issues before they heard about my divorce. Among their other matters of curious selectivity with coverage is that they militantly oppose providing coverage for homosexual partners. They considered John's heterosexual marriage of 15 years to be a gay marriage as of the moment I began to show symptoms of gender identity disorder, had decided to drop the wife's coverage completely. They were busily trying to figure out how far back they could backdate that drop when they finally heard from me that I was getting a divorce anyway.

Life is beautiful. I am going through a normal puberty right now for the first time. "Oh that's what all the fuss is about. I finally understand." is a frequent refrain in my thoughts these days. One of my problems is that if someone asks me "how are you doing?", I find it difficult to answer honestly. If I come right out and say "I am blissfully dancing through my life, and every single sight, sound, and smell compare to the most beautiful symphony you could imagine.", I tend to get weird looks.

If this is what being born feels like, I'll take it.

By your description, my eagerness for debate might also be construed as a social faux pas. I often launch in to debate with little pomp or ceremony.

But, I understand your situation. I worked for ten years with a gentlemen with Asperger's. I considered him a good friend (and still do) and I was able to have a practical understanding of it.

I think you do a lovely job of communicating your points. Your Asperger's would, I think so far, never be noticed without your promotion of it. Remember that on T|A, you will meet opposition from time to time. Also, on the internet, with written word, misunderstandings are common place. I think that people with Asperger's fit in here at T|A better than they realize. You are not the first, but I only know that because you and others before you volunteer your condition. Otherwise, I would never know. (Not that it matters, either way)

Loving your contributions so far. Thanks for your participation on T|A!
