I like to read other people's blogs. I really like them, especially ones about Autism and Aspergers. It was with great relief that I read a blog by 'thoughty autie'. The specific post is here
You see, I have this worry at times. Basically I wonder, particularly with the child with Aspergers, if I should have ignored it. Or maybe hid it. I was determined to find out what was going on.
If anyone knew what to do to help her, and her sister, I wanted to find out. But sometimes I wonder that if maybe I hid it, maybe, just maybe, she would have been able to fit in better. I also wonder if at some point in time one or both of the girls will hate me for being so insistent.
Then I read the post above. She talks of the struggle she had when she was younger. The struggle of trying to conform to what other people thought she should do or be. Now with her diagnosis she can be herself. That's what I want for my daughters with Autism. To be happy and be themselves.
