>so funny to read your comments about the clothes thing. i've added a comment - from the heart... it can take us up to an hour to get Laurie dressed depending on the softness, length of sleeves, fluffy bits and how much cotton an item has. Can't believe that I seriously have conversations with my [...]

>I've been trying out high dynamic range (hdr) photos. this is where you take 3 (or more) of the same shot (prefereably using a tripod) at different stops and then merge them in photoshop.

I had written a very articulate report but we did not present well verbally due to feeling so emotional. in retrospect I should have paid for a lawyer... They began by attacking our son so visciously that I was [...]

>thanks for all your comments guys. we've been talking about what to do. still don't know. rang the psychiatrist this morning and asked her if she really thought it would be in Laurie's interest (re his mental health) to go back to the school rather than try a new one. she's with the others on [...]

>not a good week... Laurie didn't make it into school on Tuesday - no surprise there really. We handled it faily calmly and then all trotted dutifully along to the psychiatric team for our afternoon appointment.
