Wrong Planet

This is a post for you…

The Friend that reads this blog every day… Sometimes at night right after I hit publish…and sometimes you write me and you say that my blog is the first thing you read each day… sometimes from your phone before you even get out of bed.

You are totally my people…My word loving people…

I’m so tired and I’ve got nothing to say- but I want to show up for you…because you show up for me daily. And trust me– I need your words to fuel me too.

It’s still only Tuesday… Tuesday of this week…Seriously…Tuesday…

Today was mostly hard due to:

Exhibit A…

And Exhibit B…

Sometimes being a stay at home Mom is isolating… and even though there are therapists in and out of
the house and both kids are there- it can get lonely. Simultaneously mind numbingly boring and busy all at once…

This evening when Michael walked in the door from work I threw Parker like a shot put into his arms…


Will you just take this?

I barked angrily… Can I just have 30 MINUTES TO MYSELF… I asked with no question mark at the end- and then I ran up the stairs to my room before he could possibly answer no…

No wasn’t an option…

And at first when I got to my room my mind started to whirl… How am I going to do this for the next few days with Michael out of town? And I was working myself up into a frenzy- so I decided to stop thinking and watch Real Housewives of Orange County…much better.

I keep up on medical advancements or current studies on Autism- but other than that I don’t read much on it. When I have time to read- Autism is the last topic I want to read about. At the beginning of our ride, I read everything I could get my hands on in regards to Autism- but now I prefer to read about pretty much anything else in the World.

However I recently read something that referred to autism as Wrong Planet Syndrome…
Wrong Planet (also referred to by its URL, wrongplanet.net) is an online community for individuals with autism and Asperger syndrome. The site was started in 2004 and includes a chatroom, a large forum, a dating section, and articles describing how to deal with daily issues.

And I just connected with that title…and it made sense and it also made me feel sad…
But I think that’s how it is with Greyson… His way is good and right and normal…somewhere else…on a different planet… And so when I can- I adapt to him and what feels right to him…I meet him halfway… It’s the least I can do- and it’s not nearly enough- but I try…

And right before bedtime I was considerably more sane.

It was Doodle’s turn to want to escape…

Quite a few times tonight in fact…

And now I check in with you and eat chocolate and all is right in the World again.

And these are some words that will help me try again tomorrow…

For you awesome Friends wanting more info on the Spirit Bracelet I wrote about… I’ve received emails asking for the price and how to get it… It’s $29 plus shipping and here’s the link to purchase…

I love mine and only take it off to shower- which unfortunately is not always daily… I’m getting a second one as part of a late Mother’s Day gift because I need one to symbolize each boy to wear on me always…

Have a great Wednesday…

Love Your Friend,

Chrissy
