Last Saturday, we drove my Grandmother to see her brother whom lives in GA. They met us in Perry, FL and all was well.

Earlier this morning, my grandmother called and stated that her brother said "something mean" to her.. and she wanted to come home.

Tonight she called again. This time she told me to go ahead and talk to Chris about coming to get her.

She was "supposed" to stay in GA with her brother until the end of July.

I was really, really looking forward to the break. This week has been wonderful, and DRAMA FREE!!

Now, of course I'm in a state of consistant anxiety, my heart is beating way too fast. Last I checked it was 112.

I'm so disappointed, I feel like I NEEDED this "vacation" away from the grandmother that lives next door who is contantly having me trapped into her emotionally blackmailing circle of DRAMA. I fear her.

I'm so sad, scared, and just bummed.. damn it.

I guess we'll get her this weekend.

update, Chris and my mother are going to get her in the morning. I have been "out of it" all day. She wasn't supposed to come home until next weekend. I hate it when this crap happens. Went to see Dr. Napier today to adjust my back, he said my ribs were "locked" I don't understand how..but that is the reason for the pain and pressure he said. He also thinks my headaches are caused from my neck, so I'll be seeing him every week for a while. Kindof cool seeing him, since he was the one who delivered me, and he was my childhood doctor.

well, being that this was posted a while ago, i hope all is well now. i'm wondering if kelly went on that trip to cedar point yet... if she hasn't, you should rob a bank and get money to go with her, AND you could drop by my house on the way there! yay! now there's a vacation we could all use, except for the bank robbing, of course. lol

why did you need your back adjusted? it was fine in the first place, wasn't it? whatever happened? oh, yeah, and i had a doctors appointment today- a dentists appointment actually. first one in about ten years. and they're very nice doctors. and my teeth are healthy as a whistle, or michael phelps, your pick Smile

Things are O.K. ish.. with stress and Grandmother drama.. I go 1x/week to get my back adjusted, he says it's getting better. What happens I guess is that if you stress out too bad, your muscles of course tense up, and they can actually push your ribs out of place. I'm sure there is a technical name for it, but I don't know what. He's a good doc, the same doc who delivered me infact Very Happy Kelley left Saturday for IN Sad If I would have had the money, I would have loved to just get away for a little bit lol.. one day we will. Glad your dentist appt went good What a Face I didn't know you were in Indiana.. or if I did, I forgot. I have family in IN also. Some in Martinsville, some in Bloomington, Linton, and some little no named town..ahh, I can't think of the name of it * it's by a white castle, does that help hehe *

man of a million names


um, i live in ohio. there's a cedar point in cleveland. i thought that's where she was going. huh. but i live in that little protrusion down at the southeast side of ohio called meigs county.

but that sucks that you're grandma's killing you with stress. the ciggarettes might not get you after all. speaking of which, do i still have to lead the longest police chase in history from here to your house just to get you to stop smoking?

Frustration is one of the biggest complaints I hear in the office and with thoes with AS; it certainly comes from both internal and external sources. Yes, the internal ones are self induced however if we had more external resouces to assist our children, experts who really know how to do cognative progressive therapy, therapists who really knew the underlying causes and effects as opposed to learning a technique and then applying it to each client. As I move along the Aspie Trail I see wonderful therapists applying specific techniques however most do not understand the specific difficulty of that individual client. Personally I have not seen many of the biomedical interventions make major improvements and it's time we re-evaluate the effectiveness of these treatments, find what really works and apply more effort into thoes components. Just a thought (JAT). What's yours? Dr. Ron

At tonight's Support Group meeting Jackie asked for some help; she has a 20 year old son, now in college, who has apparently changed his attitude toward her. She is requesting a consultation with someone that can help her; perhaps to get her son back on track or perhaps to help her deal with the negative position her son has taken. Are there any suggestions; she lives in the Tampa Bay area. She brings up a good question so please give us some suggestions. Thanks, Dr. Ron

I thought you were moving down to fl to kick kim's smoking habit? You could also pick up Dr. Ron as a new doc while you're down here... lol. Wink

man of a million names


Yeah, but after I kicked it with one of those super fast, awesome jumping karate kicks, I'd be arrested. Haha. I don't think I'd have the time to jump in to Ron's office for even a 15-min. session lol

Aso... (a little Kill Bill reference for you) but, being a 3rd dan brown belt in karate and wife to a 3rd degree black belt, I know that there really aren't any super fast awesome jumping karate kicks. We tend to keep it pretty low key and smooth, and all in self defense. You're thinking of Tae Kwon Do. They're more flashy with the high flying super fast kicks and all, they're not practical.... they just like to try and look cool while they get their asses kicked by us karate folk. Razz Just a little martial arts edumacation for ya.

And, you could always stop by Ron's first!! Very Happy

man of a million names


i already knew that hahahahahahahaha! i'm a 1st degree purple belt in shotokan karate myself. i was just being emphatically silly Razz but yeah, those koreans always get their asses kicked by the japanese and americans. that's what we do! lol

but, with like, the entire east coast police behind me, it'd even be a miracle to get to kims, considering i'd be driving around largo for hours upon hours. hahahahahahhahahahahahahaha Razz
