Faith, Family, Autism, and so much more...
A stay-at-home mom with an opinion on just about everything!
I did NOT laugh. As you know, we do not have anyone with autism in our family. On that level, I cannot relate. As someone with SEVERE anxiety, I can relate. I shake. I have been known to panic or "flip out" (I hate it when people say that - they don't get it).
I knew if anyone would get it that it would be you.I don't mention myself in here much because I wanted to focus on Bug, but his anxiety is something I can relate to. I have social anxiety, that's what my doctor called it. I don't know if there is a fancier name, but that is pretty darn accurate. Bug's anxiety is more than just social though, he takes it to all new levels (new for me). I'm currently reading a book with various strategies to help him - I'm hoping some of it will work. And he does go to social skills therapy which forces him to deal with some of the anxiety.

Comments are nice, but rudeness is unacceptable.
