Where do I start?

I’m still looking for a job. Part time, preferably. For my sanity.

I re-enrolled in uni. Master of Applied Linguistics.

spocksyntax

Which means relearning Syntax. And how to write essays.

I still live with my parents, and my sister and her kids.

Which I’m grateful for after we nearly lost her last year.

I have a boyfriend. It’s intense and emotional and wonderful.

I’m still in twice weekly therapy.

I’m learning about me.

I’m getting there.

Setting Boundaries with “The Borderline” while caring for yourself

So,

Some members of my family went to a workshop on Friday about having “a Borderline” in your family, and about what he world may look like from my point of view, and some safe ways for all involved to help me while not harming themselves.

One of the sets of slides I’ve been given is on the importance of setting boundaries. Knowing that I, and well anyone, will try and push those boundaries, setting them at a realistic space and being able to carry out on any consequences set. Don’t give an ultimatum that can’ be followed though!

Attached are the images if the slides in a .zip file. Email me if you want them in another format xx

On blogging, and convincing others to blog

So.

I own the domain RishniRatnam.com, and I host my bother in law at http://www.johndee.net.au/….

But of most interest to most of you…..

I now have my sister blogging. At http://gatheringpieces.littlelioness.net/

Visit her.

Tell her she is awesome. Cos she is.

Because I want there to be a place for parents with kids with Spondylmetaphyseal Dysplasia to find each other. Even if just to look at each other and realise that there are other who have no idea how this will all turn out for them.

For a community.

For Jennie. And John. And Liam. And Ezri.

And the rest.

Easter Long Weekend, Newcastle

newcastle

Ahh, long weekends. Not too much traffic on the drive up, got stuck a bit on the Central Coast on the F3 on the way back, but not too bad overall. Extra thousand ks on the car, but time well spent to catch up with family and friends, even though this easter was sans chocolate for me, which I think cut down the amount others around me had!
