So we got the official diagnosis of Autism with our daughter in January of this year, yes I've had my up's and down's and still trying to process and navigate my days! I have accepted it and I'm working daily educating myself trying diet changes, supplements, various therapies which have all helped and she has made small but wonderful improvements! However I have this nasty thorn sticking me in the side constantly! Which happens to be my mother in law!!!! I understand we all process things at our own pace and in our own ways! She is constantly asking what is Callie's new word today !? Is she talking more to her brother now!?hows her speech therapy homework going!? She is an RN and always preaches how important education is! , but apparently she hasnt educated herself on the subject of Autism! I'm just soo tired of her ignorance in this issue! We need support not scrutiny! I have suggested websites to her and tried to maintain patience with her but I have had it and about to lose it with her! Any suggestions?
