This will be the only time I defend what I say on this blog. This is my blog. If you don't like what I have to say, don't read it. If you feel the need to leave a totally out-of-line and completely incorrect comment, don't. Especially don't do it if you don't have the balls to leave your name.
Just in case there is any confusion... I love my kids. BOTH of my kids. I bust my butt every day to make sure Max gets exactly what he needs. Max is loved and he knows it. He gets everything he needs and more. He will never look back on anything I have said or done and think we have anything but love for him. Max is being given every opportunity to succeed. We spend our days going to appointments, parks and running errands. We play and sing the same mind-numbing songs over and over again. Max lacks for nothing.
We are experiencing two of the most stressful things parents can ever experience- at the same time. We just lost our daughter and are learning how to take care of a child with autism. I get to have bad days. And I get to say whatever I want on this blog. It makes me feel better to get it out. I get to hate having a dead child and I get to hate autism. This does NOT mean I hate my child. Quite the opposite- if I didn't love my child so much, I wouldn't hate autism so much. I hate what it's taken away from him and us. I hate that he will have to work harder to have a normal life. No parent wants life to be any harder for their child than it has to be.
I seriously can't even believe that I have to defend my parenting of Max. But I guess this is what happens when you put it out there....
This is MY place. My place to say what I want. My place to find other parents who are going through similar things. I have met wonderful, AMAZING people through this blog. It definitely bothers that someone would be so stupid to leave such an insenstive comment (which I promptly deleted) but one idiot isn't going to ruin this for me.
I am a grown up. I am apparently more grown up than you. I don't need to be told how therapy and this and that and blah, blah, blah... will give my child a good future. As a supposed parent of a child with autism, you should know that each kid with autism is different. They cannot be compared. You SHOULD also know that you cannot predict the future of an autistic child, especially one who is only two. My child DOES have a good future, we will make sure of that. My child does however, have bad days/ weeks. I do get exhausted.
I feel bad for your child. Apparently they have a parent who cannot keep their mouth shut and has little to no empathy for others. Clearly, it is your child that may look back and see how they have been cheated. Next time you feel the need to spout off about something in which you have no idea, don't. Stop and think how you would feel. However, I suspect you don't have the ability to actually do this. So don't come back. Focus on your child and your family, and work on pulling your head out of your ass.
