This post is now available in the ‘Life with an Autistic Son’ ebook available to download from Amazon.
Again oh so true and well written. Not adapting is not really an option. Was at an NAS PDA conference today; will blog about that soon. But it was all about realising that these children need individual approaches – the one size fits all strategy just doesn’t cut it here. Boy I wish it did, it would make life easier! We are over 2 years on from diagnosis and I’m not sure when it will sink in that this is lifelong… It’s all about dealing with the day-to-day and still trying to enjoy life! Adjustments? Yep, too right!
So many of us go through this, thank you for posting.truly, no one will ever get it unless youre living with it.-marylou
You have written a very touching post. You are adjusting to a new normal. We received our son’s diagnosis more than 16 years ago and I can remember that moment I first heard “Asperger’s” as if it just happened. You take it one day at a time, one chunk at a time, and be patient with yourself. The learning curve is straight up on this one! 🙂
What a beautiful post. B is blessed to be growing up in such a lovely family.
Thank you for sharing.
