A lovely guest post from Mark Kent..

Ooh what a life
I am a disabled adult, asperger syndrome and ME. Think how very difficult this is. 

I am married - 13 years this year to a wonderful, wonderful wife Tabitha who is not disabled in any way. When people meet Tabitha they are stunned. First that Tabitha is no disabled and second how beautiful she is. 

We have three very, very  fantastic children - aged 12, nine and less than a year.
Because I have Asperger’s Syndrome it took me over half my life to find the right relationship. September 1996 Tabitha and I first met, but before this I was very, very, very alone.  A nobody, a nothing. 

“Everybody” around me had boyfriend/girlfriend, married children of their own. All these and only these things in the world I ever wanted, but I have Asperger’s Syndrome which was making this a great deal more difficult and harder. I have had to dig very deep to get where I am today.

Tabitha and I had so much in common. We lived half a mile from each other, well, next street up. We both knew the same friends. We both were bullied at school. We started going out together then two years later moved into a flat together in Peterborough, Cambs. This was Hell, people calling us bad names.

 We got married in 1999 and moved into a house in March, Cambs, then our children arrived.
The moment at our wedding when I said ‘I do’ I was in floods of tears. I could not believe I was getting married. I could not believe this for me was no longer a dream. 

But three and a half years ago I was diagnosed with ME and put in a wheelchair. I cannot work but I do take part in a lot of research from universities in London, Cambridge, Manchester, Norwich and Sheffield. 

Today I have been to a London University doing research. I’m on the train home at the moment.
I have a lot of health problems like asthma, so for asthma UK I am a research and policy holder, meaning I can be interviewed on television or radio and newspapers all about asthma. 

I said we have three children. Our third, a girl, was born last year weighing 8lb 12oz. I cut the cord. I mean, come on, not many fathers do this. It is something very big for any disability.
I was in London City University taking part in research. I’m writing a book, Taking Part In research. I have nearly finished and I am looking at if my book can be published.
13 years married to Tabitha and I have three fantastic children there’s an age gap of 17 years between us.

What a life to live!

I wanted some one to tell me how I can submit my blog to this page. I have Autism. My blog is called "Science and Study USA" because science is my favorite topic. However, I did write about how my brain works in the first post. I only have 2 posts right now but I will soon have more. I plan on talking about my Autism some in my future writings, although the second post is about DIPG.

Always, anywhere and anytime,I feel very comfortable now all to the work of Dr Odey Abang,the Herbalist who prepare for me the remedies to my health challenges.
I could feel more comfortable when he explained to me how dangerous it's caring Herpes with me getting affected easily with Other sexually transmitted infections. Genital sores increases my risk of transmitting or contracting other sexually transmitted infections, including AIDS.
Newborn infection. ...
Bladder problems. ...
Meningitis. ...
Rectal inflammation (proctitis).
I was so scared when he says that because I found a lover who ran into it and had a shock on me after the checkup and develop stroke.
This has been my earnest prayers for the physician therapist to come in with positive solutions to remedies Herpes and most viral infections. I'm now free and I thank God for leading me to see others getting cured with Herbs. I decided to try and found out that the best way I would have done was to get rid of it and give my testimony. Glory to God I became free after I received his medicine from the DHL and applied as instructed. Till date I had no SYMPTOMS nor virus to detect of me, I called him and thankful for what he did,and ask if he could cure my stroke boyfriend,he said yes and did the same preparation to my boyfriend for his stroke and Recoverd from it. Nothing is impossible with Herbs IN CURES, you're the next if you will be willing to apply his medicine and instructions on how to manage.
