Here and Alive

I am here and alive. I know. It's been awhile. The name of my blog should really explain it all, but it doesn't. Not completely. Nope. Can't blame it totally on mood swings. Not this time.

I would also blame it on lack of time, but that too would be a lie. I have the time. I just chose to do other things. Not that I don't want to blog. I do. It's just when I have a moment to myself, I veg and recoup. To explain why, I have decided to fashion a list.  Easier for me to write and probably easier for you to follow. Trust me, if I typed this out in paragraphs, it would take for ever and get really wordy. In short, it would suck.

Long story short (as humanly possible), I give you:

Like I Had a Choice

It hit over 100 here today.  I hate heat. Never been a fan.  Luckily,  a wonderful breeze has kicked up and it is starting to cool down nicely. It's like nature's way of saying "I know that sucked. Here's your reward for being so patient."  Ya.  Like we had a choice.

Tomorrow,  my beloved 11 year old daughter will be graduating from the 6th grade. It's been a long twisted road.  In the past 6+ years, she has struggled with symptoms, therapies, med changes, evaluations, and compounding diagnoses. And all with a smile on her face. She has unknowingly melted hearts,  opened minds and squashed the negative stuff stigma is made of.  All by just being Cait.

Tomorrow, she will be receiving her elementary school diploma.  Her first educational document of completion. The school boards way of saying "I know that sucked. Here's your reward for being so patient." Ya. Like she had a choice.

My Daughter's Back Story: Cait is 11 years old. She has Bipolar II, High Functioning Autism formerly known as Asperger's, identified gifted and ADHD. She has a strong love of art and penguins. She wants to be a science teacher,  a director,  or build robots when she grows up. She might just do all three.  ♡
