Growing Up

Griffin came home the other day with a photo of a little girl that he had taken out of his back pack. I asked him who that was and he said it was Amanda a little girl who rides his bus, a friend of his and I thought that it was so darn cute! Griffin has a little girlfriend and I am not even sure that he even knows that he does but that's okay anyhow. My little guy is getting so big I can't believe it.

I have been going to the gym regularly and started free weights last week, I am so excited to become lean and ripped! Stopped being severely manic because of 1000 mg. of Depakene and now am just hypomanic but I am just getting 4 hours of sleep a night but when one is hypomanic one is able to function with such little amounts of sleep because of having so much extra energy. Don't know if my doc will prescribe more sleep meds since yet another has failed me or if he will let me function on 4 hours which I doubt.

Griffin wants to go fishing so badly but I don't know what to do, how to go about setting up everything. Our neighbor knows how to I think but I want it to be something that Griffin and I do alone. Maybe I will invite our neighbor to go the first trip to teach me how and then tell her that I want to do it alone with Griffin after that but then I will feel bad because Nikki wants to go fishing all the time and talks about how she wishes that she could go. I guess that she could come along sometimes and Griffin and I could do it alone sometimes that seems like the happy medium.

Hi, I used to go fishing with my brothers when I was younger - it can be a really relaxing hobby. Sounds like a good idea to do a bit of fishing with your neighbour and Griffin and then some time alone with Griffin. I'm sure your neighbour would understand.

Ahh! That's cute that Griffin has a girl "friend".

Good for you...exercising and getting in shape! I plan on doing the same when school is out in a couple of weeks.

Hi Griffin and Mom
My name is Jenna and I came across your site. Griffin is an amazing inspiring boy. He is so special and precious. My mom really believes that I have autism and wants me to get diagnosed. I have problems with change and reasoning and so on which I think is a sign of Autism. I also have problems with lots of Anxiety.
