Accidental Thong (health, Asperger's)
REVIEWED BY: Ms. Cairo
MY RECOMMENDATION: YES
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION LINK: Accidental Thong, by Bek C.
WEB ADDRESS: http://accidentalthong.com/
BLOG DESCRIPTION: The adventures of an artist and mama juggling parenting and the creative life as a blindfolded volunteer from the audience throws flaming knives at her. The part of the flaming knives are played by: autism/ASD, Asperger's syndrome, ADD/ADHD (adult and pediatric),type 1 diabetes, arthritis, the economy, small business operations, apartment living, and a rather large family. Like knives and fire, the flaming knives can be useful tools, depending on the situation.
Watch me gracefully work the flaming knives into my juggling act through a series of anecdotes, photographs, and How To's so you can focus on the rest of your personal circus.
MY REVIEW: This is a must-read blog for any parent who has a child with ADHD, Asperger's or Autism, or indeed, anyone who has any of those conditions. It's well written and interesting.
It hasn't been updated in 12 days, however, which has me a bit worried...the author certainly has a lot on her plate and it may be easier for her to stop posting, but I hope she will continue it.
If you're interested, check it out. You get a two week free trial period, so there's no reason not to subscribe to see if she's back to posting. Alternatively, I'll keep checking back, and let you know if it's got any new posts.
(She's been writing it since April 2007, so if nothing else there are plenty of archives for you to take a look at, and draw something from.)
