Hello everyone. My name is Tonya and I have been married for almost 21 yrs(August 1st) I have two beautiful children. My son is almost 10(June 4th) and my daughter is 4(going on 24). My son has autism. He was dxed when he was 2. I "homeschooled" him from about 2 1/2 till he was almost 8 years old. I did it because the teachers were telling me he would never be able to learn things....such as his ABC or counting. He mastered all those skills in a matter of months. I put him in school because I started suffering from seizures(found out it may have been due to Tramadol...taking this for chronic pain) also just dxed with fibromyalgia. Dealing with children(especially one who is disabled) can be stressful. Throw in ilnesses and you have a extra, extra stress. I am glad I found this site I can gets some pointers and perhaps help others who may have questions. Also a place for me to vent....when I have a run in with the school.
