I feel very guilty about this. I have 6 year old twins, one autistic girl and a typical boy. I was walking in the store with my son, enjoying our time together, his sense of humor, his conversation, his calmness, his normalness. And a thought occured to me, life would be so much easier if it were just him and me. It just came out of no where, and I immediately corrected my thoughts, but...
Now I love my daughter. In realilty, I would die if anything happened to her. Sometimes I just wish it wasn't so hard. DH told me I was feeling sorry for myself and to stop it. But, there it was. DH is still in denial about how bad her condition is. As are my parents. They think she will grow out of it. I've done enough research to know that's not going to happen.
Is this normal? Sometimes I cry for the loss of the little girl she could have been. I worry about her future. And sometimes I just want to run away.
