Feeling Under the weather

I have been suffering with a bad cold for a while now and am feeling somewhat under the weather. Can't taste, smell or hear anything and I am still on a no fat diet because of the pancreatitis and the pain that I get if I eat anything remotely fatty. :lol:

Have been on this low fat diet now for 7 months and I cant see the end in site. At one point I couldn't tolerate too much sugar either because my pancreas was struggling to control my insulin levels. Have you ever tried shopping for "treats" with no fat or sugar in them? Hmm :D

Little man is trying my patience as well because he wants more independence, but I am not prepared to allow him to go up to the park on his own for example. It's mainly a safety thing, but it is causing real tension between us as he sees all of his classmates being allowed to do these type of things.

We are supposed to get his 11+ results next weekend(14th) so we are still doing the rounds of school hunting. I never realised that choosing a secondary school could be so stressful. :o

The headmaster of his new school spoke to me the other day and said that although Little Man had only been with them two weeks it was very evident that he processed information differently to any of the other children and he was "not a normal boy" :lol: :):)

I wasn't sure how to respond to this and am making a note of things ready to tackle him with them. He did say that he would get Little Man's file photocopied for me to help me with some information in trying to choose the correct secondary school for him.

Anyway we'll just have to wait and see.......................

I'm not sure what that means either, but from reading this blog, it sounds to me as if he's probably a bit 'different' to the norm for people his age (not many kids do things like the Macmillan runs for example) and thus stands out from the crowd. It seems that's quite common for people connected to those who use this forum regularly.

Similar things were sometimes said of me when I was at school, and it was usually because I stood out through not fitting in and doing/thinking the way everyone else did.

However, that's only a guess...

I don't like the sound of that cold and dieting problem- I can only hope things get better on that front.
