Bully Beef-Up!

Tania Zaetta has come out with claims she was bullied on Celebrity Apprentice. I have not seen the show, so my comments are limited to my opinion on the situation she refers to and that of filming “reality” TV, of which I have had considerable experience on both sides of the fence – as a…

Sperga-licious!

My son has Aspergers – a high functioning form of autism. You wouldn’t know it to look at him and you might not even guess it if you “knew” him for a long time. It’s really only those very close to him/us that would really see just how far reaching and debilitating this almost invisible…

Take a GOOD look in the mirror

According to Flinders University psychologist Marika Tiggemann, just the THOUGHT of trying on a bikini can negatively affect a woman’s mood.

From Rags to Stitches

So one of my current battles is getting my darling son Kai to let go of his ragged, tattered rotten old sweatshirt that he has worn (almost every day even during summer) for about a year now. It’s tough. His Aspergers makes it an incredibly overwhelming task to transition him from the old one to…
