My mother in law (who is so overly attached to her son, MY husband, that it's just unhealthy) informing me after we told her I'm pregnant that "she wasnt going to get too excited because a lot of things still can happen at this stage".

UGH! My mother-in-law is in CRAZY mode this Quarter! I swear 2 to 3 times a year she goes CRAZY! And she starts meddling in our business, telling my DH how to do things and starts crying at EVERYTHING and behaving like she's getting attacked every day and always somehow manages to convince my DH to consider moving his new family back in with her!!!!

She keeps all of her sons on such a short leash...and all four of them are over / just about 25 and all but my DH lives at home! SHE LOVES IT! She loves having them at her every becking-call. GROSS.

About a week ago she called up DH and told him that she is having anxiety and that she would like to talk to him about it. Apparently her "anxiety" was surrounding how I treat her precious boy. *insert eye roll here* She said that we fight too much and that he is always right (BTW this was in the midst of everything we had going on with him asking me to "take care" of the baby and stuff but she didn't know any of this) apparently he told her: "If you knew what I did to her...you would understand why she's so bitter at me right now". Then she proceeded to tell us how to parent! How we're doing things wrong and need to fix things...Today...about an hour ago...she called up my DH because she want's to "Talk". UGH! We'll see what crazy marital/parenting/living advice she has to meddle in today! :smileymad:

Momagainyikes - I work with moderate to severely handicapped high school students. Many of the parents have the same complaint regarding social security. I have had some parents who have had to apply as much as 6 times in order to finally be approved. Don't stop trying. If you were denied, wait 3 - 6 months and try again. They should also be sending out a packet to the school psychologist and/or your son's teacher to be filling out to get more information on your son. Of course, don't be surprised if they just deny you again. I have filled out several of these forms over the last two years and they have still denied some of the most severe of my students. I'm not sure what state you live in, but I know that California has Regional Centers that aid in the diagnosis of autism and also advocate for their clients and it is a free service. My son is also considered to be high functioning. Last summer, shortly after he turned 3 years old, he was diagnosed as PDD-NOS which is basically the same as Aspergers. Also, depending on your state, there are other resources that can help with the social security thing such as a SELPA which stands for special education local plan area. Not sure what they are called outside of California.

Okay, I know you posted to vent, but just thought I'd give a little bit of unsolicited advice. Hopefully it can help. Be patient, the social security office is ticking more and more parents off for this same reason. Good luck!

What is ticking me off is that I can't seem to find the guts and the right time to tell my parents that I am pregnant. They are going to be incredibly judgmental and I just don't want to deal with it. My older sister who is 31 already has 5 kids and both her and her husband are out of work (have been for several years) and my parents are paying their rent each month. I have 2 kids already and my husband lost his job 4 years ago and due to the economy and cost of child care we decided that it would be best for him to stay home with the kids while I worked since I was already working. Both dh and I are in school. He is getting his bachelor's and I'm finishing my level II credential in special education and my masters in special education. We'll both be done around spring of next year. In the mean time though money is tight. My parents feel very adamantly against having yet another grandchild because between the two of us girls there are already 7 grandchildren and they are fearful that they will have to support another one. By the way, we do owe them a little bit of money that we borrowed a few years ago with the understanding that once I was completely done with school and tenured as teacher that we would begin to pay off a little at a time. We haven't asked them for any money since then and in fact have declined their help only because we didn't want to put them out. My mom is also freaked out because years ago she had a dream that if I ever had a child I would die. I almost died in childbirth with my first. That is a whole other story though that has a lot to do with negligence on behalf of the hospital and doctor treating me at the time. Nonetheless I survived and went on to have a second child. She's still worried though that her dream is going to come true and there's nothing I can say or do to change that. So, I have my mom's fear mixed with my parents being judgmental and that is how you get me, the gutless wonder. Okay, I guess I'm more ticked off at myself and situation than anything. Oh well! If anybody happens to find a spare pair of cajones around let me know though so I can borrow them! :-P

I had the WORST day yesterday. Started the day with a denist appointment because I thought my crown was lose--thank God it wasn't. By the time I got to work I was already behind, so I felt like I was playing catch up all day. It took 3 tries to get an IV started on one of my patients, I swear I hit an artery somehow on a patient, the radiologist called me on THREE different patients not happy about the scans I took/reconstructions I made.
I finally broke down and cried at about 2, then sucked it up and finished my patients for the day. I was so glad when my work day was over!

We came home from supper at SIL's house tonight to a message on our machine from DH's best friend's dad asking to rent from us.

I know I can be a total.. Bad Word.. But MIL problems were solved a while ago when MIL had Hubby by a string and I cut it. Seriously had enough of that. We haven't had anything to do with her in almost two years. She has only seen my DS one time for maybe 10 minutes.

I know that I don't know your story, but I almost died with the birth of my first son as well, due to mistakes of the hospital and doctors. I also became sensitized to three antibodies because of the 3 bags of blood I needed transfused to survive. I know its a horribly terrifying thing to live through.
