    Sorry Holly. No one will ever be a closer genetic relative to you than a full sibling (we know she has no twin)

    Holly did know every single sugary bite Alix had taken a few weeks back.There is some self-preservation in seeing if you ate something from the same package, but she also knew it was normal food for her.

    On the list of reasons I never set my alarm for the radio. Along with the song you detest being imprinted on your waking brain for the rest of the day.

    I am in a FB group of people caring for people with dementia. The number of perfect solutions offered by people who see our loved ones for 2 hours a year and haven’t talked to their doctors and dealt with the bureaucracy and spoken to other caretakers and in short has no idea what the diseases have done is astounding.

    One of my great-aunts was a widow with a young daughter. A daughter who contracted polio. Who needed to work. I have a feeling she encountered this (though Grandma was able to care for her niece during the day) seeing as it’s still happening

    My Sociology professor had us play that game. Each of the 4 got an envelope with the starting cash. In each group one person got a certain amount, 2 of us twice that, and the third 3x the original.

    Chloe likes peas. Bell peppers, even tiny diced jalapeƱos (I tell her to leave any large piece lest it lead to discomfort) Broccoli, carrots, whatever this vegetarian is putting in her dish, other than onions, garlic, and grapes. Sliced fruit bits from what I added to my cereal goes in her bowl. I could take her to doggy school with just carrot slices. And she’d be just as eager for her reward a when I brought a meaty treat (what anyone else eats isn’t my business, other than limiting the fatty things other people slip her as she is a bit overweight, 23 rather than 21 or 22 lbs and yes I was referring to my dog.)

    As a person who minored in Psych, I get what the book is trying to say. As an Autistic person, who does need clues to converse, it’s data that I have used. As someone who is just trying to talk without feeling so much pressure I can’t (and who knows the arguments for and against “an Autistic person” and “a person with Autism”) all that advise for how to talk can build up a wall about doing it “right” that leads to silence… and so fully understands Irving and Cathy’s stances

    We bought our house with the idea of giving me some privacy. We didn’t count on Mom’s becoming severely disabled, me not being able to hear her if she forgets and just yells, Dad not being able to hear her from his study, and Mom being between me and Dad. And my being disabled enough to use a cane or, when I go out, a wheelchair. We use our cells a lot in the house. But at least we don’t have to watch our minutes
