About Me I'm a single mum raising a 10yr old boy. Both my son and myself are Aspergers people. I'm shy & awkward & frankly don't really have any friends or people to spend time with because I'm awkward with people, places & situations I don't know. I've been through an abusive marriage & the death of my fiance 4yrs ago & I don't expect to ever meet anyone who would love or cope with me & my son again but it would be nice not to be quite so lonely all the time.

I think the world we live in now is mostly a scary place full of scary people & part of me would love to live in a cross between Miss Marple's village & a 1950's American suburb, as I love being a home maker but it seems it's not okay to like that any more. I thought my mum's generation fought for women's lib so I could have choices but it's all gone the other way & now I get frowned upon for wanting to be a full time mum.

What Gives Me Hope My son.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I think local councils (certainly in the UK) tend towards a lot of OTT fines for very minor infractions e.g. parents being fined for littering having failed to spot their infant drop a single chip in the street.

I would amend these petty rules and initiate rewards for people who do make an effort. e.g. gift vouchers for people who do actually recycle. I'm not talking massive value here, just an acknowledgement. That kind of thing, anyway.
