My family, my responsibility

      3 Comments on My family, my responsibility

Last night and this morning has been pretty rough.  It could definitely be worse but it could also be better.

After Gavin’s brief return home yesterday – because he had nowhere to go after school- Emmett was afraid to go to bed last night. That hasn’t happened since Gavin’s last tantrum. 

Maybe it’s just a coincidence but I don’t believe it is. 

Emmett’s been difficult all morning long, as has Elliott. 



Lizze is having a nonfunctional day.  When I say that, I mean she can barely get out of bed, let alone help me with the boys. 

To say that I’m just a bit overwhelmed would be an understatement. 

I’m building the Autism Help Forum app, big thanks to Tapatalk for that. I’ve got an article deadline to meet this weekend and maybe try to pickup another writing job.

I really love writing for the Childswork Blog because it allows me to do part of needs done at home and it really helps me to better support my family.  That is so incredibly important to me.  My dream right now is to build myself into a situation where I can support my family without help. 

It used to be that way until I got hurt and lost our insurance. 

I’m so grateful for the help that we do get, I just feel like it’s my family and my responsibility.

Those of you with Android devices are going to really like the Autism Help Forum app.  It will make using the forums much more convenient.

I got to run, Emmett is screaming and Lizze needs help.
