I know it can be depressing to read my #Autism parenting story but after you finish reading, I’ll still be living it



Being an Autism Parent is like riding the scariest wooden roller-coaster you can possibly image. There are often no brakes and that means you can’t get off the ride because it never stops. In many cases, the ride doesn’t stop until the day you die.

I know it can often be depressing to read about the struggles I face as an Autism and Special Needs parent. Someone from high school once told me that they don’t read my blog because it’s too depressing and they don’t want the negativity in their lives. It’s true and that really hurt to hear that but I get it.

While our story is unique in the sense that we are dealing with 3 kids on the Autism Spectrum, as well as some very rare medical and mental health issues, it’s far from unique in many other ways.



Every Autism and/or Special Needs family has a unique story. Everyone faces a unique set of challenges and yes, it can be depressing to read about it.

It hurt to told by someone I considered to be a friend, that they don’t read or follow because they don’t want the negativity in their life. That’s not something I would ever say to someone but on the other hand, I get it.

Here’s the thing.

I am another autism parent. I just have one child, my adult son with autism. Reading your blog is inspiring – you keep going in such difficult circumstances. But maybe some people have trouble understanding it if they aren’t autism parent
