the life and times of an asbergers mom!!!

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

Thats right i admit it, my son has asbergers syndrome, and for those of you who have NO IDEA what this is, its under the autistic aumbrella, and its got so many numerous things associated with it , i wouldnt EVEN know where to begin, but just know that every day contains a NEW surprise, why just 5 minutes ago he realized at the age of 16, that if you hit your head hard enough it will eventually hurt, Nooo he is isnt a regular hitter of hiself (in fact he does NOT DO pain), he just wonder how hard it would take it, this was done by using a video game (resident evil 4), and then after doing this he was concerned "he might have damaged the game", well no fear folks the game its fine, and he said he wasnt gonna do that again, i told him "sometimes i wonder about you boy" to which he responded "i wonder about you all the time MOM!!"
so for those times when i think ny life SUCKS, i can just add this to my list of things that dont!!
i wouldnt change my son and am thankful to god every day that he gave me this challange, he mustof known i could handle it because they say god doesnt give us anymore than we can handle, well as long as he doesnt do damage i guess it'll do!!!
hugs and kisses to all of you have those kids who give you that special challange because YOU CAN HANDLE IT, go thinks so anyway....smile emoticon

    Oh my boy makes me laugh everyday. I have decided he is only "disabled" when the rest of the world requires teamwork from him. And, quite frankly, it makes it their problem if you ask me. He is perfect in every way! If neurotypical folk could sometimes have a bit more empathy and compassion life would be that much easier.

    Kids make us look at things with fresh eyes. Asperger's kids give even more insight! I love learning from my aspy boy. Stay the course sister, we'll all be stronger for it!

    Kids teach us new things all the time. I'm thankful for my son every day and it warms my heart when others speak lovingly of their children.

    Love your post! My grandson is 9 and was just diagnosed with Aspergers so I kind of know what you're going through. Blessedly, his mom is terrific and is handling things well. She's just glad to know what's wrong with him.

    I'm so glad you have your faith! God is walking this journey with you and your son and you'll never be alone during the highs and lows of this disorder. I love that you can laugh and be grateful. :)

    God bless you!

    My nephew has severe asbergers syndrome; I stayed two months with my sister and her family and after witnessing the good and the bad that can come within a blink of an eye as a result of the condition, I have to say kudos to you dear lady. It's hard on the parents and on the kids, but I agree with you, God only gives you what you can handle and it's important to keep your faith.
