so my three year old son has been diagnosed with autism very recently and we are waitng on an appt to get "treatment" started.......this really sucks, never thought i would be a mother of a child with something like this..not that it in any way at all changes how i love my sweet babay boy or anything i just am overwhelmed with a sadness FOR him at the moment. i hate that autism is something uncurable, it can be managed but it will never go away i know what its like to have something going on inside ur mind and u have no control even when ur "manging" it..i have severe anxiety disorder for many years but anyways i dont want him to have that feeling of no control, or for ppl to be mean over something he cannot control... i hate this.i cannot wait to get something going to help him get a better hold of himself, he doesnt understand and his sister doesnt understand but we will learn about it and understand it as a family.
my family has uninvited us to thanksgivn this year which broke my heart because they cannot handle how my lil man acts, i try to explain and we try and try to help him but my family just dont get it, and we are also asked to take the kids over ther for a few hours the day before christmas so the kids can open thier gift from my mom so none of my family from outta town will see my sons behavior on christmas. to me this is soo cruel, my son is not a damn monster hes a three year old lil boy with a big problem.
im worried for my son..im worried for my family-my fiance and i have had some rough spots over this because he just doesnt want to believe something is wrong with our son most the time..he knows there is but its just hard on him. his aunt who he was raised with has downs and hes seen how ppl treat others that have something wrong..and yes i know thier two very different things.
