Where to begin! Thank you so much to this wonderful community of Autstics, friends, parents, carers and allies of the autistic community for sharing our video and making it reach nearly Half a Million views in just over 24 hours. It breaks my heart that so many autistic people hate themselves so much because they view themselves as broken. Not so much a mama bear more like a mama llama. As a community we need to support the most vulnerable to whilst also liberating ourselves from this “broken/Disease” rhetroc. I am not broken. Neither is my son. Yes we meltdown, yes we become mute, yes yes yes to all the deficit you see. But we are HUMAN, and we are not broken. We are autistic. And with love, acceptance and pride my son has come on leaps and bounds with his self-esteem and happiness. You want a cure? There’s your damn cure!
Get it and show me your choices!
Myself for over 10 years I have had diagnoses of psoriasis, psoriatic Arthritis, ankloysing spondylitis, fibromyalgia, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, restless leg syndrome, IBS aswell as depression and anxiety. I know between myself and my boys we have a range of disabilities but we aren’t broken, we may have days where we don’t know which way is up nore down but we get through that day and live to fight another day. As a mother win autism I try and make life a little easier for my boys by buying school uniform online and trying it on at home and sending things back as and when needed less stessful as well as each school holiday especially the summer holiday i timetable days out, events I’ve booked we are attending, cinema outings, beach day outs as well as short breaks planned anywhere from over night to 3/4 nights. I did this last year made sure we were out at least 3 days if not 4 days a week so my youngest is kept busy due to routine change and no school for a longtime and also this works well for my eldest because otherwise he would stay in his room 24/7 and it benefits the whole family we aren’t in all day everyday and not getting on each others nerves. Autism too me means organised so I can then take on life and make things easier on both my boys to an extent anyway
