There comes a time in everyone’s journey, that a fork in the road is reached. When that time comes, a decision is often required before you’re able to continue moving forward.
I’ve realized that Lost and Tired has reached that fork in the road.
There were a number of reasons I’ve found myself here but there’s only a few that really matter.
For those following Lost and Tired, you’re likely aware that the issues with Facebook essentially crippled the site. While this wasn’t the only reason for moving on, it was a catalyst.
When I began Lost and Tired over 6 years ago now, it was at a time in my life where I felt completely lost and without a direction to go in. It was fitting and something that so many special needs parents could relate to.
When my wife left last year, the boys and I began a new journey on our own. It wasn’t a journey that we would ever have asked for but our path had changed nonetheless.
The fork in the road can take me in two different directions.
One will allow me to continue down the same path I’ve been on for as long as I can remember. The problem is that this path also includes a great deal of pain and baggage from all the boys and I have been through this past year.
The second path takes us down a road into uncharted territory. While the destination is uncertain, this second path allows the boys and I to make a fresh start.
I’ve chosen to take this second path because I feel that in doing so, I will be able to better embrace this new journey and gain a sense of closure as well.
All of the past Lost and Tired backstory will remain at the Lost and Tired Blog as a reminder of all we’ve overcome along the way.
The Autism Dad blog picks up on January 1, 2015 and will carry though our current and upcoming journeys.
I feel as though I will be able to provide the community with a more positive but realistic take on what life is like for me, as single Dad, raising 3 boys with Autism, all by myself.
As always, what you read here will be very honest, transparent and raw.
I don’t sugarcoat things and I share the good, bad and the ugly. If you don’t like that, simply move along to another blog that’s more your type. 😀
I really need your help because starting over is starting over. Please be sure to follow my new social media accounts at the top right on this page. Please share my story by using the sharing buttons at the top of each post or page.
This is critical because I need to hit the ground running and regain some lost ground. In order to support my family and get my support sites alive and serving he community, I must get ad revenue back on track.
Thanks everyone for coming along for the ride. 😀
