Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort

Maeve and others, thanks for the advice.

We're not the touching kind, well I'm not, so she might not experience that as me comforting her.
[Over-sensitive autist: What to others might be a comforting touch, is hard pushing to me.]

She has now been moved to a single room (one she is also familiar with). Let me see what the nurses think of me playing music there. But she now sleeps where last week she merely dozed, thus I don't know whether I can be there to reach her when she is somewhat awake. Should I say it's good for her to be sleeping, rather than be awake and suddenly find herself locked in by her inability to communicate?

And thanks for warning me to take care of myself as well. That seems to be one of the harder parts of taking care.
