I'm just tired. I'm tired of all the doom and gloom stories of autism and all the martyr stories. This is nothing about me and all about Roger. Yes I have to do things. I have to take him places and give up things but that is being a parent. I don't want to change him but yes I do want to help him cope.
Right now he has gotten to the point when he starts pacing or rocking he has no problems telling the person that's staring I have autism whats your excuse. He needs to have a voice.
My biggest question where are the adults? I know they are out there I have talked to them. Bring them into the conversation. Every report about autism is about the parents and what they suffer through. what about the kid? what about them. I don't care what I go through what about my kid what is he going through? That's what I want to know.
