Born Anxious is a homegrown clothing label with two objectives, to make the clothes as comfortable as possible, whilst also remaining planet friendly, and to hold important information that will aim to help not only the child, but also the caregiver as well when required. As an autism mum myself, I have thought about what could help me and other caregivers whilst trying to be as generic as possible within the designs, alongside giving those the opportunity to personalise their products as well.

We haven’t  come this far ,to just be ok

We haven’t come this far ,to just be ok

My slogan is I’m winging it, but really I want to be winning it, yes I know ,part of any Childs development  if they have special needs can be unknown because they can have delays in development   , but when you struggle to meet most targets ,it starts to get you down , I want it all ,yes that’s right I do, why not? , I want a target met just one , I mean a biggy , I need that energy for the next phase, his first year of school is almost over and surprise surprise our targets haven’t moved much , and that’s ok but I need a new energy .

Its so easy to look back with the mum guilt and think, why didn’t I push that a bit more or Change my strategy there , that’s over thinking about the future and targets for you I know lots of other SEN parents also guilty of this 🌈🌈🌈

I’m not taking anything away from Oscar he has for him made excellent progress this year with the difficulties he faces , his Autism , his anxiety , and epilepsy ,I’m pretty sure places him in the  complex category😶 although know ones actually ever said what level they feel he is at , I think it’s too early to say I think he’s still climbing he’s riding slowly 👍,his school really have set achievable targets for him and he is slowly improving ,but as his mum I have short term targets and longer term ones .

So currently his short term targets are on track the longer term ones, at points if I’m honest feel a million miles away ,and are not measured by any means , I do want to be that mum that can say ‘Oscar used to only drink from a bottle’ or tell a story about how I successfully made a transition for him like the toilet ,or Big boy bed ,all the things I had the beauty of taking for granted with my other children ,in short I want to be that mum that can say how far he has come in real  measure, and have real big wow moments and show off about it😂 , I think we will🥇 looking back he has come so very very far ,and maybe I’m being greedy but ........ 


I want to be that mum  ,that can reflect on her difficulties with fondness ,as she now has calmer days, I want to be that mum , that’s  mum goals 🤘

In Autism, most progressions I find, is met by a new challenge, but looking back we do celebrate the small things🌟🌈,I hope we never stop that , I’m really really proud of oscar and grateful for all the support we have and the input that people supply , but as his mum I think it’s ok to say I didn’t come all this way just to be ok , I want to be more than ok in the end , I want to look back and think , yes that was hard but I’m glad I didn’t give up it’s my fuel💙

I was allowed near him so I inhaled him a bit💙anyone else do that?

It will all be ok in the end , if it’s not ok? It’s not the end 💙

It will all be ok in the end , if it’s not ok? It’s not the end 💙
