Kids With Special Needs / Re: 2nd Son, also with ASD
« on: December 04, 2015, 07:08:51 pm »

...I never went to another dev ped for a 2nd opinion.  Tinagap ko na lang ang assessement niya... maybe at the back of my mind, I know na tama siya...

Unfortunately, we have to lessen his ABA session to 1x a week only (sometimes hindi pa natutuloy). We also stopped his Speech therapy due to unavailable slot since full time na siya sa school and complete with tutor pa after his class.

He's currently not doing that well in his subjects in school, specially sa math, failing lagi.  Seems like may attention and comprehension problem siya... but the teachers were not recommending him to be transferred out, yet... but we might end up looking elsewhere if his current school finds him "not suitable" under their standards...although they are fully aware of his ASD.  :'( :'( :'(

I no longer know if we should still push him to excel in his current school or just give up... one side of me wants to but the other side still won't give in... bottom line, I seemed to still be in denial... ironically, after fully accepting kuya's situation, kay bunso, I can't?

 :'( :'( :'(

Bunso is now in Grade 1, mainstream schooling.

We just got back from his recent assessment from his devped... same diagnosis  :( :( :( :(  I was so hopeful that the Mild ASD he was branded before would now be lifted since he has improved a lot, but no...

I'm now thinking of having him checked out... 2nd opinion from another devped... mukang in denial ba ako?

...umalis siya ng alam niyang hindi ko siya pinayagan...

...I suddenly feel low, depressed again... I was asked by an aquaintance if my bunso has mild ASD.  This person is already someone who knows me/us and my children quite well.  But suddenly the questions feels different, it's like a realization, is it that obvious that he is in the spectrum?  I can't shake this feeling off.  All the feeling I had when he was initially labeled came pouring once again....

Grabe, hirap, parang emotional roller coaster!

Hi maarcee_0312.

I totally agree with you!

I believe that we had short comings on how we were able to treat kuya during the times na ka-age pa niya si bunso.  Although we gave all the therapies he needs to help him, he indeed needed someone who can converse or talk to him during this time.  Unfortunately, ang yaya niya nun (no offense kay yaya, she took great care of kuya naman), hindi talkative, tahimik lang din... and both me & his dad are usually not around, since we're both working.

Kay bunso, since na-experience na namin kay kuya ito, we had a watchful eye on his development, we kept talking to him, asking him questions ("what" sa umpisa, then "who", then "where", now we're asking him "why").  He learns to understand the question and give the correct answer after a few days of constant conversations lang, although he is still delayed for his age, but the good thing there is may steady improvement siya... dyan ako napapa-ngiti.  Sa self-help skills, wala naman problem, he can eat, pee/go to the bathroom. change clothes by himself.

For your cousin, I'm sorry to hear about that. Sayang talaga ang mga chances to help her improve, kahit life-skills sana, naturuan siya... nanghihinayang ako sa kanya, lalo na girl pa siya.... what does her parents say about her?  Sana may hinabol na theraphy now, kahit na life-skills lang....

We're done with our check up with Dra. Eusebio...

Bunso's performance was impressive.  He has very good sitting span and everything went very well.  He showed Dra. he can read simple words and was able to reply to Dra's questions properly/correctly most of the time, this made Dra. smiled and advised us to continue his schooling under his current school (which is actually not recommended initially  due to the number of students per class - more than 10).  :)
On the downside, he still has fleeting eye contact and he doesn't reply or he diverts the topic if Dra. ask him something he cannot answer.  :(  Therefore, he is still diagnosed ASD, Mild.

As for kuya, well, Dra. said just to allow him to graduate nalang sa current school niya and focus on looking for a vocational course where we can enroll him to enhance his drawing skills, he's very good with details and has good peripheral vision (he said he wants to be an architect when he grows up). Diagnosis? He was previously ASD, Mild.  But now, ASD lang.  :(

Sana they, specially bunso, keeps on improving... at makahabol na sa level ng kids typical of their age, lalo na emotionally....

Kuya & bunso are scheduled for a follow up check up with Dra. Eusebio on March 08...

Keeping my fingers crossed for ANY positive feedback from Dra.... specially kay bunso....

...looking forward, but takot sa maririnig from the Dra....   :-\

Birth Control / Re: Ligation after CS
« on: February 24, 2014, 12:45:34 pm »
Hi Katy_mae,

Been there, done that... same tayo , after my 3rd CS.  But my tubes are "cut" and not "tied".

Sa akin, it was discussed w/ my OB na before ako manganak, but then again since sa "catholic" hospital ako manganganak, she said, hindi raw papayang ang hospital.... but at the last minute, during mismo ng CS procedure, she advised hubby na itutuloy na raw niya, kasi manipis na daw masyado matres ko, and magkaka-complications na raw ako if mabuntis uli ako... so there, justifiable naman daw ang reason.

Recovery is the same with CS lang.  Ang nadadagdagan lang na concern is paminsan kumikirot yung 2 tagiliran ko, parang may cramping.  But it only lasted a few months, now bihira ko na maramdaman ito.  Mag 5 years old na si bunso sa March.

Tubal Ligation may additional doctors fee plus lab biopsy (tama ba yun) para dun sa tinangal or cut na fallopian tubes mo. Yun lang.  :)

Hi BASTI, julia_18,

Salamat sa mga advise niyo. At least na-lessen yun pag wo-worry ko.

Since we already started to process the Mayor's Permit, can we stop half way?  Mawawalang bisa ba yung mga binayad na namin after a year (let's say after a year before namin i-pursue ang permit)?  Do we have to got back to square one?

We already have the Bureau of Fire Protection Certificate (may "red tape" na kasama yan, waah...) and was already inspected by the City Health official for the Sanitary Permit (another "red tape" step) but still pending issuance of the certificate.

Our Salon is located in Malate, Manila.  The place where our salon is located was previously a salon na rin.  Nag end contract lang sila so we decided to take over, renovate and just continue the same business, under a new name of course.  Sayang yung mga existing customers na nila... so far, we are more than a week in business na.

Keeping fingers crossed that the business will prosper.

Hi Basti,

Thank you for the advise.  Nung una, I was actually thinking that we stop muna after getting the barangay clearance...what worries me is baka may maingit at magsumbong sa kinauukulan.... by that I mean that by law, you should complete all steps or permits before you start operation.

Based on what you said, maybe we can stop muna after getting the Mayor's Permit (since naumpisahan na namin ito) and then secure the BIR after a few months, kapag medyo stable na ang salon...

Pwede ba yun?


Money / Opening a Salon
« on: February 06, 2014, 04:23:22 pm »

I'm opening up a small hair salon. location is just at home...

My question is, do I have to go through the full process from registering my business name up until the last step (BIR registration complete with receipts and books of account)?

I'm done with DTI and Barangay Clearance and now processing for Mayor's permit.... can we stop after we have the permit and just continue with BIR application once the salon is stable?

I'm already getting frustrated and scared at whatever additional cost I have to pay for all the permits, not to mention, "necessary red-tape" and of course the time and pagod spent to finish the process.... I am currently employed so I cannot just stop work just to finish all the paper works...

Any adivse/help would be greatly appreciated...

I used to have one back in high school... not sure now if best friend ko nga ba talaga siya before?

Ako tabuhan at councilor niya ng problems, assistant niya, if needed, etc. Like a loyal friend, I'm there for her each and every time.  But if buhay ang lovelife niya, out of the picture ako... then she'll come back again when "over" na sila, for a shoulder to cry on....

what makes me "break up" with her is when she failed to attend my wedding... instead of telling me directly why she stood me up, she told our boy barkada (with whom she had a huge crush on) na nasiraan daw yun car niya.... when in fact she can reach me or my parents anytime and in anyway, like she always do.

Although my reason seems mabababaw, I guess that was the last straw.  I realized she will never be there for me now nor in the future.  It's herself she cares about, her world and ours should revolve around hers only...

From then on, I refused to have any contact with her na even may effort siyang kumontak sa akin (by the way, inaaanak ko yung anak din niya),  All the while, she thought na pinag babawalan ako ng asawa ko to talk to her.... so just I leave it at that.

The Balancing Act: Career and Family / Re: what business to put up??
« on: December 05, 2013, 08:07:21 am »
i think putting up your own business can be related to something you love....

Something related to momhandsarefull's quote above:
Once when we were planing to franchise a food business, we are told by the owner if we patronize the product are franchising.  Similar to what was said in the quote, we need "love" the product in order to have the passion to sell it and to sustain the business. So think of a business you believe in and start from there.

Hi yanyan06,

Baka late talker lang si baby?  Wala ba tangang kahit anong speech?

My Rule of thumb is if I feel something doesn't seem right, painapa-check ko na, better sure than sorry.
