Sometimes #Autism can be incredibly frustrating

It’s been a very frustrating day. We had to totally adjust our plans because Elliott was home sick but we try very hard to roll with the punches. Autism and/or Special Needs parents have to be able to adapt because they living in a ery fluid environment.

I was able to get Gavin to his appointment at Akron Children’s Hospital but that ended up being frustrating as well.

His gasteo is really nice and she’s incredibly patient. ☺

I’ve spoken about this many times over the years but it bears repeating once again. Gavin is not a reliable source of information about anything, especially when it comes to his health. He struggles with memory issues and even basic comprehension.

None of this is his fault but he very much muddies the water when he tries to answer questions.

    Gavin looks mature which is very misleading. From what you describe he has the understanding of a small child. I guess the doctors will get used to it.

  1. I am *amazed* at all of the parents of special-needs children.

    Patience, devotion, sacrifice … Y’a…
