I’m always looking to raise awareness, not only for people with Autism and Special Needs but also their parents and families. I came across this quote and I don’t who wrote it but this says everything that so many Special Needs parents can very likely relate to.
Please take a minute and read this quote before clicking the Like button and Sharing it with your social media networks.
It’s so important that Special Needs parents and families get the love, support and understanding that they need and deserve. Speaking from experience, if and when someone asks me how I’m doing, I usually say I’m fine, when the truth is I’m falling apart inside.
Please remember that there is oftentimes more going on beneath that smile than what is on the surface……

i try to always say fine. If I don’t I wil cry. Then my contacts will be messed up and i cant stand to wear my glasses and cant afford more contacts because of crying. If i am having to explain what all is going on in my life people are sad about it for me and i can hear it in there voice (if i heard my story i would feel the same) and if they are really nice and mean it i will cry for sure. dont worry i get enough crying done but honest to God it doesn’t make me feel better. it does feel good to do for other people. i took my son to his ivig appt and i brought two of my Oprah magazines i had not opened that i was going to read while we waited (but i cant read when i have anxiety and gave them to two ladies that were getting their infusions of whatever and both ladies were glad but one lady was very thankful cause she said she was so bored. it helped my anxiety as well. IVIG for my son went very well. it doesnt look like he is going to get side effects this time. I hope he has a good month. I start my new job on Tuesday and i am so thankful. it will really help. had to get a disability lawyer the other day cause my son’s disability was denied. what a racket. the attorney’s asst was the one that was being so nice to me and she asked do you have any help, no, do you have a church, yes, do you have a social worker, no. she really was almost in tears and i told her i was sorry to upset her at work but she was so genuine and is going to try and help me figure something out. great news is my great job is a half mile from my house so virtually no gas money and i can do for my son before work during lunch and after work and that will be a big help. now if i could go to sleep that would be good. i am not up at night worrying, i just cant go to sleep. hopefully with work i will be the kind of tired that will make me go to sleep. i can actually remember long ago how i could just put my head on the pillow and be out in 10 minutes. those were the days
I am guilty of this myself. I suffer from chronic pain and fibro and I usually tell people I am okay even though I am in pain.
