Ummm, hi?
I've joined here as i don't know where else to go. I'm disabled, but deteriorating, so going from able bodied to a wheelchair atm. I have a job that I love, but unsure how that's going to change.
I'm a happily married mum of 5+3, most are grown up now, so only 3 live with us, that are 11 and 9 year old twins. 1 twin and the 11yr old are both autistic, and the autistic twin also has ADHD. Our house is fun, although when my 18 Yr old lived at home, that was even funnier, as he had tourretes, and an awesome sense of humor.
Ok, so enough about me, coz I can talk the hind legs of a donkey, and man I don't wanna do that......
Hugs and love to all. Xxxxx
