This has been a hard week for one of the hardest parts about loving and befriending and living with people with special needs: the HELPLESSNESS. The raging, raging helplessness.
But I wouldn't trust myself with a magic wand right now anyhow; I'd shove it up the ass of the first person who looked at my son sideways.

Nobody would...he's too beautiful. But for what it's worth, if they tried, I'd hold them down for you. Actually, JULIA might. Aspie-Grrl!ReplyDelete
A hard week indeed. Much love to all.
Thanks so much!ReplyDelete
My blood pressure is starting to level out and well wishes are helping too.
We're doing dinner with Bill tonight and hopefully he'll be in good spirits. He just doesn't seem to connect what he is feeling to jumping out of the van.
But we know that we are blessed in this outcome...
...and that before us is the task of making sure it never happens again.
Hugs to you!
Oh, and this is why a bitch hasn't had a real vacation in years...
