Today my son Jim had his bimonthly psychiatrist appointment. We have been seeing this gentleman for 22 months for him, I've been seeing him a little longer. Ds has never talked to the dr other than Hi and bye, usually just a wave. All he has ever done was shrug his shoulders. Today we walked in there, he said "Hello," told him what his favorite subjects are at school, he's a little afraid of going to a new school next year, isn't getting in trouble at school and loves art and dinosaurs!!! All I could do was sit there with my mouth open and tears running down my face. For all the times that I have beat myself up over decisions that have been made and are they the best ones, and guilt for his diagnosis, today was proof that I am doing something right. Crying again lol


This is my baby...he'll be 13 in July! This pic was taken two years ago before he transferred from elementary to intermediate school. In August, he begins the two year stint at the middle school.

Thanks! Yeah I'm nervous but I've already met his teacher and the aides for next year and I'm feeling much better. They are going on a field trip to see everything on Monday
