What Gets Me Through

What gets me through the day & stops me from pulling a Thelma & Louise: 

My Husband:  Matt is an amazingly supportive husband and rock-star dad. He comes home from work after a long day and goes straight into dad/hubby/cat whisperer mode. I love him.

My Family: Specifically my mom – she’s in touch with autism groups, she researches, she reads and she understands.

My Friends: I get by with a little help from my friends, LITERALLY. My friends are the most honest, supportive, wonderful and beautiful people in the world. They are the family I choose. They don’t keep score, they take my child when I need a break, they get my husband and I out of the house for game nights, they let me cry all over them, they feed me tasty viddles and they unconditionally understand our situation.

The poem “IF” by Rudyard Kipling: “If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same…”

This Quote: “Just because you have autism doesn’t mean you can scream in the store.” A good friend shared this with me; it is available when judgy moms and dads stare and shake their heads & make comments when we are grocery shopping and London is losing it. This quote works EVERY SINGLE TIME – all those judgy-judgertons who stare at us at the supermarket immediately turn around and mind their business.

Vices: Dark Chocolate, Red Wine, Coffee, Coffee & more Coffee!

Cardio: My generous mother and father in law were kind enough to give us a treadclimber and I absolutely love it.
