  1. Your poor daughter! Can you post some pictures? Maybe someone could help identify them by the bite.
  2. I taped it and I'm going to watch it later tonight.
  3. There are a lot more services for someone who is on the autism spectrum vs. someone who has adhd. We did the gfcf diet for a couple years and it took over 6 months to notice a difference, but then it was remarkable. DS was no long impulsive or distracted. He didn’t have as many sensory issues, rituals went away and there were hardly any behavior issues. We also eliminated all food dyes and artificial sweeteners. When he went off the diet, all of these things started coming back.
  4. I love all the educational titles they chose. It shows that they have instilled a love of learning in them.
  5. My husband hasn’t been able to work for quite some time because of cancer and we called the bank about refinancing. They turned us down because he didn’t have a job. Our payments would have been quite a bit lower, but that didn’t seem to matter. We have been working with the bank on our mortgage for quite some time. At first, we were paying interest only, but when even that was too much, we worked it out to give them a little money each month. They seem like they genuinely want to work with us on not foreclose.
  6. Wow! $400/week. I can’t imagine that. I don’t really spend much money on myself. I might go out to lunch a couple of times a year or buy a book for myself once in a while. I definitely spend under $10/week.
  7. Definitely the internet. Makes teaching so much easier.
  8. We don't have alcoholism in our family and I'm a major sugar addict. This researcher says that sugar is just as addictive as cocaine: http://articles.nydailynews.com/2012-04-02/news/31276928_1_high-fructose-corn-syrup-sugar-consumption-table-sugar
  9. I have a sound machine from the Sharper Image. I love it!
  10. My son had it, but after several years of vitamin supplements, he no longer has it. I do recommend getting the urine test for confirmation. The supplements should only be taken if your daughter shows a need for them.
  11. I’m glad to hear that. When I search for a string of words in quotes and want to find those exact words in that order, I can’t. Instead it will find posts that have all those words all throughout the post.
  12. I never heard of that either. I'm also from the midwest.
