What about Maya? Is she worried about her, too? Is she concerned that she spends too much time with Yair and doesn’t devote enough time to Maya (or to her husband)?
That’s a very good point. It is common with parents to autistic kids. Added it to the profile.
It can be useful to consider Sharon’s challenges in a slightly wider perspective
I added this to my profile:
She is always tired- some days more than others. She’s always busy, always under some level of stress. Always has an endless list of chores. She always feels a bit ashamed about not giving Maya enough attention.
She’s constantly torn between her kids, her husband, and her job. Usually she’s the last one on her list, and she can get frustrated about it, wanting her freedom back.
She lost a few friends since the diagnosis, but she met so many wonderful people because of it. She is thankful for the new friendships she formed.
All in all, life is good. It’s not perfect, it’s hard, but she is optimistic overall, so it’s okay.
And my blog purpose is:
I help parents of autistic kids help their kids better. I do that by giving them information about different treatments that can improve their child’s life (by interviewing experts or other parents, reviewing books, and sharing my experience).
I hope it’s not too long. I tried to it more specific in the 2nd sentence (so the first one is not too long).
