before jack's autism became apparent, i posted more and in more places. knitting boards. cloth diapering bds. general parenting boards. now it's just sn boards. granted, i never posted much anywhere, but now i only post on sn. i still knit and would actually love to talk about knitting. but i feel that right now, being the parent of a sn kid is such a big part of my life, i can't relate too well with people who aren't in the same boat as me.<br><br>
am i alone in this?

I am afraid of most boards here, LOL. SN is the only one I regularly visit.

I post here, the If You're Happy and You Know It Flap Your Hands group on Ravelry and the UC forum here as well.<br><br>
I like my happy little bubble <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Here I only post on the SN board. Once in a while, if I have a specific question about a specific thing, I'll post it in the right forum here.<br><br>
I do have another forum I post at - started off as a diaper sewing board and just expanded. It fills my crafty needs and the ladies are pretty darn non-judgmental and supportive. Many also have kids with some sort of sn, so that really helps.

yeh, me too. occasionally I venture out, but we just can't do some of the more hard core crunchy things we want to do, and I don't like being reminded of that all the time.

I'm primarily here now, but I ventured out to the Vax forum recently, just for a quick exemption question. I don't dabble elsewhere on mdc anymore, it's too hard to constantly have to explain every single comment and post.<br><br>
And since I don't have time to knit anymore, I just lurk in the craft forums. Sure wish I could do more than that. I'm on another parenting board - my July ddc that moved from mdc to a private board, and I LOVE them over there. Actually easier over there than anywhere else here on mdc but this forum.

I post mostly here. I do post on the child led weaning board. Every once in a while I will post on the vax board. I am part of a private playgroup board for my ds1's birth month that has been around for almost 6 years but i'm finding it harder and harder to post there. He is just so much different then them and since ds2 is not typical either, it makes it pretty hard.

and you know, having a special needs child really makes you learn that sometimes people have very good reasons for doing what they do, so judgement isn't as common of an issue.

No kidding. There are threads that I just want to scream reading. "I'LL TAKE YOUR PROBLEMS ANY DAY!!!!!" I've become much more reasonable since D came along. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

I post mostly here and talk amongst ourselves (the non-child related stuff). Occasionally other places, but not much.

I learned that I had to turn in all my cool mom/AP/Crunchy points and badges of honor over time as the Dx's for the kids rolled in. So, yeah, I am most comfortable posting here because I would be tarred, feathered, and deboobied if I posted elsewhere.

Yup. I'm mostly here too. I stopped going to Life with a Babe a while ago. Way too difficult (i.e. heart-wrenching). And I can't relate to much in the Toddler forum either now, since I don't really have a "toddler." I *should* spend more time in the GD forum for help with DD who is 3.5 and I constantly feel like her and I are locked in a battle of gargantuan proportions, but I usually just get more frustrated there since it seems like I have tried everything. Every once and a while I seem to lurk in the land of those who are pregnant . . . I miss the nostalgia. The sense of hope and optimism and innocence. It was the calm before the storm . . . Part of me is sad that I'll (most likely) never be pregnant again. Finn was the last one, but of course some part of me wishes I could do it again. And somehow do it "right" this time.
