The funny side of autism:

I asked Sean why he rearranges his furniture at angles so it's not flat against the wall, and he told me it's because he leans on it, thus it gets pushed away from the wall a bit, and gets stuck at odd angles. I had to laugh because his explanation was so simple and the reason was not that he did it deliberately.

On another note, his sudden blurting has escalated, to the point I'm worried he might develop Tourette's Syndrome. So far Sean is not on any medications and I'd like to keep it that way. Any kind of drugs/medications are bad, very bad. Because I work in a doctor's office, I know so many things...I always threatened to write a book blowing the whistle on the medical profession when I retire. But I am seriously thinking about starting it now, because I think it will take me a long time to finish it and I want to get certain facts out there in the public.

I have been in absentia lately for a number of reasons. The Easter weekend was very busy, with family and friends eating up a large part of my time. Also, there's been a nasty stomach bug making the rounds and has all but knocked me out so I've been too tired for anything other than lying on my bed watching TV after coming home from work.

And I've been a lot cheesed off with football. My teams aren't doing particularly well and I've been concerned about corruption in the sport raising its ugly head once again. But I am looking forward to the European Championships this summer, as well as the Olympics.

On TV, Game of Thrones' second season has begun and looks great - the same high quality as the first season. The Borgias' Season Two is about to begin too. And I have become a big fan of Mad Men, a series I had never watched before. But I've spent so much time in watching it the past week that I feel I'm actually living inside the show! LOL.

I've also watched a LOT of movies on Netflix. I prefer independent dramas to the blockbuster stuff, and I can recommend the following movies highly:

Heading South (a film taking place in Haiti), Fish Tank (British), Bride Flight (Dutch), The North Face (German), The Beautiful Person (French), Sidewalls (Argentina), and three films from or about Belgium (Antares, In Bruges and Moscow, Belgium).

Now it's time for me to get caught up with my flist! ♥

What a day. Okay, I'll try to make this short.

Yesterday my husband (Eddie) had to have surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff (it's in the shoulder). So of course, yesterday morning I threw my back out. I have no idea how, but it's stiff as a board and excruciatingly painful. I went to work anyway, after dropping Eddie off at the hospital first. And because I work for a doctor, I was able to get medication there (Celebrex, a strong anti-inflammatory, and Robax, a muscle relaxant). They got me through the day okay, I got home in time for Sean when he returned from school, and was able to go back out to pick Eddie up at 6:30 PM when they called me to say he could go home, and stop on the way back at the pharmacy to get his scripts for pain meds filled.

But today....OYYYYY. I can't move. The pain in my back is unreal. I can't do a damn thing, and once Eddie's nerve block wore off he was in terrible pain also. He took his pain meds as instructed but they didn't work too well at first, so I called the surgeon's office and was told he could double up on them. Thank god that seemed to work, because there is no way I can drive.

As for me, the meds weren't working either. I took one of Eddie's as well (Percocet) but it didn't do anything except make me groggy as hell. So I phoned my boss and he told me I could double up my meds too. I'm still in a lot of pain but am a bit more mobile.

Anyway, because of this I cannot do anything I had planned for today. I am sorry, but everything is going to have to wait until I can bear to sit at the comp for an extended amount of time.

Cheers to all.♥

About a year ago I decided I would begin collecting jerseys when I went to Spain and Portugal. The first shirts I bought were from Sevilla FC and Benfica in Lisbon. Since then I've added to my collection. I've begun to collect National Team jerseys as well. I was just discussing them with [ profile] aglaiya on my flist, because I want the Mexico NT shirt so badly, and there is a store near me which stocks any and all shirts, but the Mexican NT (and the albiceleste from Argentina) shirts sell out so fast they can't keep them in stock. After about 5 trips with no luck, I've finally ordered the Mexican one. Anyway, I thought I'd do a picspam of the shirts I have. Below the cut!
