This kid of mine ❤’s his burritos. Anyone else’s autistic child or autistic adult have a massive love for burritos? He got a California burrito – my husband says because he saw it had french fries in the description. His main menu consists of hot dogs, burritos, more hot dogs more burritos…
I mean he […]

Another day of parenting

One of my biggest struggles with my son is his ability to understand that even though he is 21 years old he doesn’t have the mind of a 21 year old. He thinks because he is 21 he should be able to do as he pleases. He is able to see others like his […]

I recently watched the movie Rainman with Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman. I believe this was the first of its kind to show autism on this platform. It showed just how many people even those in the medical field were not aware of it and how much we didn’t know. As I watched it […]

By |January 28th, 2019|Family|0 Comments

Routine in my house is a must. There are days when I want something other than the same ole routine. I want to get up on a whim and just ride to the water or somewhere other than behind these walls…Maintaining a healthy routine can be an essential aspect of daily living if you’re […]

In my opinion, be true to yourself

I am not the judge or jury for anyone else’s actions. We all live by our own code and what you feel is right or wrong may not be what someone else feels. No matter laws or religion when the day comes that we have to answer to our actions no one else will […]

And I can’t ask Why me?

By |January 22nd, 2019|Family|0 Comments

You know that age old saying, don’t ask why me? Well at least that is what I believed …that was something you just didn’t do. Even if you went through a crap ton of stuff you just didn’t ask why me. I don’t know about you but sometimes I sit back in my head […]

A passion for helping others

Here it is on a Sunday evening and I am sitting here watching my husband sleep. Which I am ok with. He is trying to struggle with his current job to try to transition from years in the Marine Corps to now transition to driving CDL (commercial driving) for a living.

I recently had a […]

The truth can be hard to see

Well it has been almost 2 weeks since my last post. I have been having an enormous amount of discomfort from whatever is going on inside of me. Today I go for an ultrasound. Thank goodness someone finally ordered something I needed. I have just been beyond ready to find out the problem.
