One day you will realize when people leave you alone who was more closest your heart, you feel alone like a tree which is without a single leaf and then you need to understand new leaf come when old leaf goes out. So don't wry new people will come in your life who replace their place... #reality of life.. #self respect is more important then relationship...
There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to autism. Like a lot of people assume because you have a child with autism you've received a lot of assistance and for us that is simply not the case. My son fell into an insurance loophole where he was not able to get any intensive help. He couldn't even get speech and OT. The only speech and OT he was able to get was through school which was about 90 minutes a months. He was never able to get ABA. We did the best we could on our own but we are just two people. We were running on years of poor sleep. No breaks whatsoever. This needs to change. Kids can't keep falling through the cracks like mine. I'm honestly not sure what to do about it but I'm putting this out there. He is now on the Medicaid waiver and receives 1/2 hour a week of behavioral and 1/2 hour a week of music. We can get respite finally but it's hard to leave him with people you don't really know. If you are in the same boat as us I'm sending you hugs today. I know you need them! #reality#autism
I never knew the power of breath until I did a breathing workshop. Starting my day with 5 minutes of deep, mouth to belly breathing absolutely changed my life - filling my body and mind with energy, and reconnecting me to my authentic self.
My view from the front door... I love it, this view is a dream come true... Today is grey and very quiet, sort of what it's like inside, we try to take coming out of hibernation slowly over here in a house full of people who have a tough time with transition. I'd love to be posting about how we are taking this great day to be creative and make colourful things, bake some more of those cookie bars on the stovetop. Have some amazing time doing fun science experiments or going out on an adventure... Reality... #reality
We just want someone to come over and bring us all a coffee, well all mochas really and make us some sort of fantastic meal we haven't had for a long time, have stimulating conversation and well behaved kids who get along with ours... .
Looking forward to Saturday @mrsgingras ❤❤
