Sometimes I wondered why some bloggers didn't post as often. In my early days I could blog all the time it felt. So much to say. Then there are times when a wall is hit and it's easy to feel like all has been said. And then there are personal times where so much is going on and it doesn't seem right or relevant to share - or maybe it's too painful.
I have been quiet because I care for a child with Asperger's Syndrome. It can be so shockingly hard at times. I guess I don't need to keep saying that, but there are periods when the all consuming entirety of it all leaves me with little or no time to do the other things that I'd like or want, or need to do.
I seek balm for my soul right now. We come to the end of the first year at Secondary School and whilst it started off well it seems that a life-long disability doesn't abate, it just changes. It feels so cruel at times and my heart feels like breaking at times and everything else in life just ebbs away in to insignificance.
I am still plotting and planning and reading my next book. I always have to have one to keep me going, reminding me about staying positive and how it's totally possible to chase and reach goals. In fact, on that note, I would like to ask if anyone has any ideas on where or how I might go about getting a social skills coach for my son? I would like to find a good expert who can work with us to coach my son through the tricky terrain of human social relations. Ideas most welcomed :)
I haven't disappeared but yes, I have been rather consumed by AS.
