Soooo sick of my friggin' in-laws!!!!!!! The other night I was talking to one of my SILs about Tristan and my anxieties about him starting school and she starts going on & on about "He's NOT autistic!! That's just a word they slap on smart kids b/c they don't know how to explain how smart they are! He's so smart (blah, blah, blah) they just wanna act like something's wrong." I cut her off & started yelling at her saying "you are not with him all day every day! you do not know what you are talking about" etc. THAT pissed me off.
Well now I just check my email & get this from my MIL and I am furious!! I had emailed her about how nice Tristan's coach was at sports camp and how he sat with him until his screaming stopped when I would drop him off every day. And her reply was: "Well good. You will have to see about getting him calmed down before he goes anywhere. You need to work on that before he goes to school. Not everyone will be that patient."
UGH!!!!!!! It's not that freaking easy!!! She still thinks it's just a behavior problem (like him being spoiled or a brat). She does not understand his dx at all and refuses to believe he has autism. Yes, he can talk....now, anyways. Yes, he likes to hug. NO...he doesn't rock (he used to before he learned to talk & express his anxieties). Yes, he is super smart. Why does she not get it? Why will they not even listen or read the info I email them??? I am so very mad and hurt by this. I wanna scream and punch all of my in-laws in the face!!!! Not very Christian-like of me......but that's how I feel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
