Are you out there?

I am feeling incredibly inspired today. I don’t know what it is, but I know when I get that feeling, I just have to go with it. Maybe it’s reading inspiring stories about others. Maybe it’s looking at my two happy children and knowing how much they touch my heart that I want to spread it onto others.

Sometimes I sit back and wonder what I can do to help myself. What can I do to better myself? The first thing anyone will tell you is do things for yourself. That is very true. You need to make time for yourself. However, some people thrive mostly from doing things for others.

I ran into an old friend this week who is currently going through an extremely challenging time in her motherhood. She is blogging about it the whole way. We talked about how no battle is worth enduring if you cannot share it with others and help someone along the way. How very, very true for my life, at least.

If I am helping you by writing this blog, please let me know. If you have a child with Asperger’s, ADHD, Asthma, Allergies, Anxiety, any A, let me know. Just let me know that you are reading. A simple response with ……. will just let me know that you’re out there. That you are trucking along life’s bumpy road with me. That my words are bringing you some type of comfort.

Like I said, no battle is worth enduring without the love and support from others. So, are you out there? How can I help you and how can you help me?

    Hi, I stumbled on your blog via Baby Center Community ( parents of high functioning ASD kids). My name is Valerie, married with our son Luke is 6 who was recently diagnosed, and a 6 month baby girl named Kendall.
    Your blog is great – I had to force myself to stop reading (I went back as far as May) because I need to go to sleep!
    Reading your blog tonight was helpful because I’ve reached a point of sadness and feeling alone and while usually I am the one that has alot to say, alot to share, alot to teach, alot to learn…. I’m tired. I need a moment to catch my breath (I know you know what I’m talking about: ) and it was so nice to listen for a while and see that I am not the only one – or more importantly to our little guys, they are not the only one!

    Thanks for sharing and being so honest with your words and about your world. I wish I had the energy right now to do the same, it must be therapeutic! Maybe someday. For now all my energy is being spent on worrying about my son while he is at school or being at school to assist him in any way I can, or beginning my new obsession : researching every square inch of the internet for information about IEP’s, laws, hiring an advocate, finding a better pediatrician, a better child psychologist, finding an O.T. ….. the list goes on.

    Hope all is well in your world! Great to meet you. I would love to offer any support or help I can as well.
    Sincerely, Val
