AUTISM IS NOT A MIXED BAG OF BEHAVIORS!!! one minute good, the next bad. No, no and no. Nothing we do is premeditated. Within us is a constant struggle that frustrates us to no end. This isn't a wound that heals with time. This is war 24/7. This may come as a surprise to some, but we are aware. We're alive. We have feelings and we hurt. There is no greater love than the love we share. Hold us. Squeeze us. Love us. This ride is hard. #weareautism#myworld#youarenotalone#aspergers#autism
It's important that YOU do this for yourself. Don't worry that your not in it everyday . It means something that your getting off the couch and doing something. Hang in there and trust the process.
WHEN YOU BOTTLE UP YOUR FEELINGS AND YOUR SHELF FALLS DOWN, YOU'RE TRAPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF A CIRCLE MADE OF BROKEN GLASS AND PAIN AND YOU CANT DESCRIBE THE FEELING OF ABSOLUTE HORROR AND DEPRESSION BUT YOU HAVE TO BE OKAY, BECAUSE IF YOU AREN'T THEN YOU HURT THE ONES YOU LOVE. WHEN YOU HAVE TO STAY ALIVE, ABSOLUTE TORTURE, ABSOLUTE HELL, WHERE NOTHING CAN OVER RULE THE PAIN, ALL BECAUSE EVERYBODY ELSE IS SELFISH AND WANTS YOU TO STAY, AND YOU ARE SELFLESS BUT NEED DESPERATELY TO LEAVE. help me. ~J.C #transgender#lovewins#loveislove#transaspies#autism#aspergers#asd#iamvalid#trans#lgbtq#lgbt#pride#support

Partially stoled this maymay. But that is called being transformative.
What took place in this picture was absolutely heartbreaking
At therapy tonight, Gavin wanted to bring us up to speed on his missions. It's important to understand that these missions are related to his Schizophrenic hallucinations, and done with a team that only he can see.
It was heartbreaking to hear the depths of his delusions anymore.
Dr. Pattie and I just looked at each other in disbelief when he was finished with his debriefing. He had talked nonstop for almost twenty-minutes, without taking a breath.
It's gut wrenching to see where his mental health has taken him at this point.
I wish there was something that we could do, besides love and care for him, but sadly, that's all we can do.
I'm a fixer by nature and this is something that can never be fixed.. #Autism#Parenting#Family#Parenting#Sensory#ADHD#Awareness#SpecialNeedsParenting#Aspergers#Parenting#Sensory#ADHD#Schizophrenia
The Super Siblings "board game" Challenge!
Each spot was matched to a different musical game involving a physical or cognitive challenge. Roll the dice and move accordingly-- we only used 1, 2, and 3.
After each challenge, the siblings had to state one nice thing about each other and one thing they hope could be improved. This led to meaningful discussion about how to adjust and work on their actions to better get along.
We're happy to share more ideas and adaptations for this exercise, just ask!
