 was writing for a friend who has now joined mothering and has written her own thread.  thanks.

I dont want to hijack the thread - but just wondering about pros and cons to getting a diagnosis for Aspergers?  
I have enforced the "you have to eat what we are having for dinner" and kept the foods reasonable, things she should like - like quiche. She did eat, not alot, but its a start.

I just posted something about Feliway - and just talked to a rep on the phone. She said the diffuser works better than the spray - something about the ingredients being different and the spray only being potent for so long.
