In life there's always 2 sides to the coin. With autism you get Both and everything in between. These pictures depict these stages.... People who know me will say I'm typically a ball of sunshine, positive, kind, generous and loving. Lately with my new ptsd issues I feel my true self is some what slipping out from my fingers and I don't know how to grab it and pull it back. I am isolating myself from friends & my husband, not answering my phone, crying most of the day, longing for sleep because then I don't feel anything and I can escape. My body physically hurts, avoiding social situations because I can't manage to put a smile on for others. Loud noises in public are probably the worse thing for me right now. Im not posting this for sympathy or for others to feel sorry or bad for me. I'm posting because this is a growing epidemic (autism) in America and I'm not the only parent feeling this way, but this is a subject no one is really getting loud about and it needs to get LOUD! because for some, these feelings without care can lead to horrible actions.

Sometimes what can look like destructive, harmful, or injurious behaviors are the ways a child with Autism is communicating a level of anxiety they are having. Let’s explore what is causing this anxiety and find more appropriate ways for your child to communicate their needs together.

No words. Just major smiles and excited sounds with Mac initiated hugs. - you happy buddy? -Uh huh. That’s love you feel. Doesn’t that feel good? - Very. We had a really rough afternoon that kept us two home from a family movie. So we talked about feelings and then snuggled. Sometimes that’s all one needs. #chooselove #choosekind #invest #talkitout #makethetime #lovepeople #makeadifference #smiles #harddayscanchange #loveoneanother

How My Special Needs Child Gave Me Beautiful Skin

Of course, I have bags under my eyes from years with no sleep, I have wrinkles from age and deep worry lines. Yet here I am nearing 50 and I look in the mirror and my skin looks young, smooth, silky and shiny. I've never had a "skin routine" or facial (lets be realistic raising three on your own, two with special needs and medical conditions, I certainly didn't have the time, patience or money.) So, why is my child with special needs responsible for the welfare of my skin? How do you have beautiful skin when you have no time, its the lowest priority on your list and you have children with special needs?

The answer.
When my son was young every time he would have a melt down, every time I felt I couldn't cope, every time I needed to cry my heart out, every time I was overwhelmed by what my life had become. I would go into my bathroom, look in the mirror, take out my little pot of moisturiser and start to rub it into my skin. Slowly I would massage away the pain. First across the forehead, then under the eyes, stroking the cascading tears from my cheeks. I would breath and soothe my heart. Eventually, when all the moisturiser was absorbed, when I was calm, with my skin shining, I would force myself to smile in the mirror. Speaking to my reflection I would say "you can do this" and return to the mayhem awaiting me.

Some weeks I would go through pots and pots of moisturiser and my skin would almost break out like a teenager, yes, they were the difficult times. Other nights, I would lie in bed and my skin would be dry and that was how I knew it had been a great day.

The years have passed and I see my friends having botox and plastic surgery to fix their sagging, wrinkly skin, I smile to myself and think well aren't I lucky to have a child with special needs who made me moisturise so much that now my skin shines.

For more stories like this and top tips, follow me on Facebook. There is a new group for mothers of children with additional needs, medical conditions or prem babies starting soon!

Kaylee has an aide with her all day every day while at school and a hour and a half after school. We can’t thank Megan and Nadia enough for all their love, patience, and help they give us and our daughter daily. Kaylee decided her 100 objects to bring to school was 100 fruit loops. #100dayssmarter🤓 #80daysleft📚 #kindergarten #💯🌈 🥣#classof2030🎓📚🍎 ✏️✂️📐📎📖 #autismawareness #ig_autism #autismparentingmagazine #autismspeaks

Even if your child is not able to write out cards think of a way to say thank you! Make a sign and have your child hold it up and send it as a thank you card! Sammie said I have him writing 1,0000 Thank you cards... 🤦🏽‍♀️😂😂😂😂 it’s a work in progress lol! #gratitude #autismmom #autismawareness #2018 #templegrandin #autismparentingmagazine #autismtips
