it’s been over a week since the official diagnosis. i’m relieved. i’ve suspected t was somewhere on the autistic spectrum ever since he chose signing over speaking. and as wonderful it is to be affirmed that my instincts where right, i keep asking myself the same question… “Now what?
i’ve scrolled though countless pages online, bought books, talked to people that have ASD. but i still feel lost. i’m a single parent of three boys. i have the support of my parents, and siblings. but somehow that isn’t enough.
parenting is hard enough. being a single parent, more so. but now add this to the mix. i’m just exhausted. i know there are more parents out there going through similar situations. i’ve considered starting a separate blog for this.
anyway, i just wanted to empty myself. these black words against a white background do provide some relief.
