Bouncing Off the Walls
I have found some great blogs from Ireland, my new FB friends, and look forward to following them as some of the children are quite young and newly diagnosed. I am hoping that I can share my/our experiences with them and perhaps they can find something that is valuable. I have also met a woman here in the USA who has an autistic son who is now a teenager in mainstream high school classroom and I'm eager to hear about what it's like to have an autie teenager. Seems kind of scary to me, puberty and autism ARGH! My friend Vicky tells me that Griffin is so handsome that the girls will be noticing him before he even takes notice of them. I can't help but wonder how he will react to the opposite sex. One day soon, I will post a photo of Griffin's father and you can be the judge of whether or not he looks like him. I think that he looks just like his dad, who is Samoan. And that he looks nothing like me. I will have to do a side-by-side so it will be easier to tell.
Well, it's almost time to brave the cold again (finally above the teens) 22 degrees and take Abby (Griffin's service dog) out for a short walk. I think that I will write in my online journal, there's something productive to do!!!!
Hi Jazzy! Thanks for dropping by and reading my post about the link between autism and bipolar disorder. It is nice to meet kindred spirits! This could be the beginning of many a year of friendship. I have been blogging since 2005 and are still great friends with many women I have met through here, so I look forward to many years for us!
