"Autism & Memoirs of an Old Maid"…C'hele's Story


My journey and lessons learned regarding personal relationships and life. All this and more from a fiercely independent, spritely, emotional and passionate female!



  1. Hi…just did a google on whale medicine (power/spirituality). It is very strong in my life right now, or maybe it’s been there all along but not she is waking up finally..lol..
    Anyhow, I loved the journal about the shamanistic dreams, I too am a lucid nature dreamer. I think we are for a reason, I’m not sure about my purpose yet…..
    I then went to the home page and discovered the blog on children w/Autism. My son is going to be 16 yrs old in July and we have struggled for years, never really figuring out what the root issue was…ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia and many other disorders. But no one seemed to have caught on about Autism. It has been so hard, he actually became somewhat violent towards me and family members that I feared for safety with Arson and violence. His counselor said he hadan 8 yr old social/emotional level. Other family members outside from my home have criticized and all but put shame on me even though he has been doing terribly where he is now. I have tried to go back to his counseling and psychiatrist to further his development and get an Autism diagnosis, but no one will listen. We were so close to that before he left. I think Arspergers?? was the starting point, but I have courts treating me badly and I am disabled and my heart just feels empty like I don’t have any strength left. I have no legal help, nor any money and no one will listen. My son, Ricky, has failled 9th grade with only one credit in art…go figure.
    I feel the Whale’s presence is awakening in me. I had always been a single mom, everything I did was for my son. When he left I lost who I was, but the Whales led me here for some reason….
    I thank you from the deepest place in my heart for reading this and any insight or help and guidance.
