I finally got out of an emotional and mentally abusive relationship where my ex partner didn't understand nor was willing to learn about his children's needs and problems.
So in two years I have been there with an abusive relationship, as a single parent and currently in a great relationship with Lee who has taken on my four older children as his own and helps me with everything concerning them and their needs. He has also helped me to get my family into a routine which we rigidly stick to which helps life in general a lot. Lee has also calmed my children down and put a stop to the violence I was receiving on a daily basis from two of my children.
Adam is my eldest. He is 9 years old and has a diagnosis of ADHD and he also has dyslexia and specific learning difficulties. He has been on medication but has now been medication free for the past 18 months. He is currently being assessed by school and education to see if a statement is needed for him to help him more in school.
Daniel is 4 years old he has what the professionals call complex needs - basically he is confusing them lol. He also suffers from glue ear which after three months usage of a temporary hearing aid is currently clear. He has also been diagnosed with global developmental delay and displays a lot of challenging behaviour and defiant behaviour. At school he refuses to talk and interact with his peers, he is currently undergoing lots of assessments and discussions are in place to see if he also needs a statement.
Lewis is Daniel's twin, he is also 4 years old and he has the most health problems out of my five children. His current diagnoses are: global developmental delay, growth hormone deficiency, abnormalities of the brain, speech, language and communication problems, lax joints and ligaments, paralaysis of the vocal chords, asthma and eczema. He also has behavioural problems, obsessional behaviour, social skill problems and learning difficulties and also autistic traits.
Chloe is 7 years old and she has no health or learning problems at all.
Kayleigh-May is 6mths old and is a healthy happy baby who is also very contented luckily, and so far there are no concerns about her.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog and my story of how my life is, and how no matter what I'm thrown, I cope and always look on the positive side that there are families who are worse off than me and have it worse than myself.
I am already prepared to the possible fact that I may be caring for one of my children for the rest of my life which I will happily do as that is my job as his parent.
