You're the OP, do it's your choice whether something is a derailment or not. in my opinion, there's very little value to high spy's noticings of random coincidences, especially since he started out here by presenting himself as a specialist in probability theory.

Also in my opinion, he's disrupting the conversation you and jersey girl are having, which I was following with great interest, and to which jersey girl is contributing her very real, non-nonsensical experience and considerable, practical, and eminently useful knowledge. What she is posting is far more helpful than high spy's bizarre imaginings.

I sent you a PM.

I will respond to Jersey Girl's posts when my brain isn't spaghetti. It's been a rough day today. I adore Jersey Girl. And I can perceive what she is saying. From her first response to this thread I knew what she wanted to express. I talked to Jamie about his past and there is a clear connection with how he is and where he comes from. But the problem is that for several years, I shut down instead of telling him how I felt.

My only frustration was over high spy's disruptions, especially in this forum.

Please note, I'm not asking you to respond, I understand how it can take a while to think things through. I do think Jersey Girl's advice in this area is extremely helpful. I know she puts considerable thought into threads like this, and I really, really appreciate that.

Me too. She is very insightful and has given me a different perspective to consider in this.

OMG Jersey Girl, it has been 20 years since I first "knew" you :o am I that old????

As I recall, you were 14 when you showed up and we were concerned about having a minor join the forum. If I'm wrong about the age, I'm absolutely certain that you were no more than 16. Twenty years makes sense since I joined the forum 24 years ago.

Do we have no life? :lol:

We ended up destroying the board and they took it offline so there's no way to verify that.

My username had my age in it. **...140812

No idea how that came about lol.

That's a shame about the board.

For a period of time, the board was my life 😂 I felt like it wasn't a Mormon forum but somehow we are here on a Mormon forum now lol.

Pretty sure there was a big conversation where someone suggested I had Asperger's and I had no idea what that was and now here I am, with school thinking my son has Asperger's(or similar) and in looking at that, I actually do think maybe I have ASD. Lol. Wish I understood at the time, then I could have asked the question.

Oh my goodness. P just grabbed a pile of books and threw them across the room. But I'm impressed that I only needed to tell her to pick them up one time and she did it. Flabbergasted! Bit concerned that she is walking about and her bag is jingling with coins. She is the master of finding coins around the house but she seems to think if she finds them they are hers.

O had a bad day yesterday. A boy who I don't like my kid talking to met up with us and walked to school talking to him. Not planned. Oli got very hyped up but did not calm down until I didn't let him play or go on screens last night. When I was letting the teacher know at the door in the morning we could hear a zoo of noises coming from Oli from the lockers round the corner. So he has lost his break at school today because it did not stop all day.

Realised Oliver's medication might be causing the behaviour. He is taking Montelukast. Think we need to stop it and see what happens.
