  1. The research regarding of the cause of autism points to genetics, so that fits! Also, Science Daily is such a great read.
  2. Where can I watch this??
  3. That show is the highlight of my quarantine so far. It seems like is HAS to be fake, but apparently it is real.
  4. I second unlimited screens for you at this time. You can fade it back later. You personally have enough stress in multiple domains of your life - let the kids be occupied by something they enjoy so you can get your school work done. Hugs to you.
  5. Patterned Peace:
  6. I have donated several hundred dollars to the local group that provides grocery store cards to school families and an equal amount to the food bank. I tipped our voice teacher the equivalent of a month's tuition since he had many families quit and was worried abut paying his mortgage. When we get take out I tip about 50%, and this is reminding me to go buy gift cards for restaurants we support. Overall, grocery bills are higher but gas costs are much lower; I'm probably coming our ahead on that.
  7. Hugs to you. I am very hopeful that you will get all the care you need!
  8. Hugs to you all. I hope he gets the help he needs. I have 3 teens and it is HARD.
  9. Oh no. I am so sorry. I hope the biopsy brings good news.
  10. Ugh. I always get called back for multiple mammograms and then an ultrasound. Hopefully you are fine and the uncomfortable feeling is from all of this other fear and craziness going on. Hugs to you.
  11. Hugs to you. That is probably a decent explanation. Also, it is allergy season here and I have had a sinus headache and mildly scratchy throat on and off for a week. Maybe that could be contributing to your headache as well?
  12. One step at a time, Beth! I am glad you are taking care of yourself. Best wishes to you.
  13. I actually wonder if that petition was only signed by UW students or if it got into the mainstream media and outsiders signed it too. Their winter quarter is almost over, it's just about 2 weeks left at this point.
  14. You need to call a water damage remediation company immediately. They should come out today and work to remove the water and set up drying fans . Time is of the essence. They can advise you regarding the furnace and vents. Find someone who can come to your house ASAP. Your insurance agent may be able to recommend a company. I am so sorry you are going through this. I am still traumatized by the sewage back up we had 2 years ago.
  15. Holy cow, that is horrible. Thoughts and prayers, sister.
  16. Agree with everyone else. Hugs to you all.
  17. Hope you and your kids are doing well.
  18. Are you in Seattle or very close? Aspiring Youth social groups or Outdoors for All could be possibilities. I would definitely look into Special Olympics. I agree that part of the issue is likely a lack of common interests. Some things that might help - is she into Tik Toks and memes? I know memes are nonliteral and therefore hard, but Tik Toks are super popular. You can restrict inappropriate Tik Tok content at some level in the "digital well being" setting. Try popular shows like The Voice, the great British bake off or other game shows, or local televised sports so she has something to chat about with other people that doesn't require following a complicated plot.
  19. I am so glad you found something to help!
  20. Living the dream! Congratulations!
  21. Have you looked at jjill's Wearever line?
  22. In Washington we don't change our plans, we change our clothes!
