autism, autism, autism!

What is it with this autism thing? 

I feel like a woman possessed..

 Autism is here 


Autism is over there.


Autism is all around around me




Sometimes, I feel like my life revolves around autism
It's not just my child
It's my friend's child
It's her friend's child
It was the motivation for my school
Autism is the reason for our Mums support group
Autism calls me
It called me to the last Action in Autism meeting
It's calling me to Ballito on Friday to be part of a group of parents and teachers looking to start a school
It has called me to be a participant in a workshop being held in Kids First this Saturday
Autism is calling me
again
to a workshop in Joburg (sorry, Midrand!!) next weekend

HOLD ON A MINUTE
did I say next weekend?
a one day workshop?
BUT
hey
I am away for two nights and many many hours that DON'T involve autism

It is one day of autism

THE REST IS MINE!
and 
I CAN'T WAIT!

seriously folks, autism is a large part of my life
however, this blog helps me to off load
which prevents me from boring my friends (the non autism ones!!)
THUS
enabling me to have some autism free time
in my life!

I don't really give a toss about the workshop in Joburg (sorry, Midrand)
it's just a bloody good excuse to go away
to be me!

perhaps
I am not so
possessed 
after all!!

  1. I am thinking that possessed is probably not the right word to use..... let's go with *obsessed* :)

  5. Hey, I completely understand you. It's almost the same with me... Going to the office is only half om 'me time'... More of me time is the drive to the office and back... I sometimes ask myself... when it will be our (mine and my husband) time... This is really scary to think of... How little of those are there for us...

  6. Oh Autism can indeed be quite posses.... I mean obsessive!

    Sounds like you've got a good balance going on there;-) Enjoy the couple of days away. And remember: blogging is cheap therapy;-)
