Autism and Growing Up

A couple days ago Dominoe informed me that she hated her horrible life. She needed a job and a place of her own. She has said similar things to this before.

When I asked her why her life was horrible she said because she could not take a bath by herself! Of course I asked her why. To my knowledge the PCA only helped her with her hair. Dominoe agreed that the PCA only helped with the hair.

Maybe she just caught me on the wrong day but I told her to get a job. And get the PCA’s to bring her to get job applications and I would fill it out.

I also told her to go to our provider company and get them to help her find an apartment. She is 21 year old now. She is old enough.

I guess it is a little cold hearted to tell her like this. I just do not want her to feel like I am the one holding her back. I get the feeling that is what she thinks. So… I will let you know how it goes.
