I have been doing art, just ready to post about something different for a change (I know, shocking!). I am feeling worn out this afternoon. A busy few days, and a lot of social...good social, but social all the same, and I'm tired. Then this morning we had our first appointment with a new psychiatrist, the next step in the ongoing process of accessing as many services as our Aspie-filled family needs, and it was positive, but exhausting.
I am ready to retreat a bit. To the land of quiet computer...beautiful, beautiful concise black lines of silent text. Time to ponder each response. A little red X to click, which makes a tab disappear if its information is extraneous or unwanted. A mute button.
Maybe when I'm done with the computer, I'll paint or read a book.
O the introverted pleasures that await, like balm to my raw, overexposed and disappointed soul!
Disappointed because we just found out that my son's funding application for school was denied...again. Which means no EA (educational assistant). The bottom line is that he's too well behaved. Even though he desperately needs the help to cope with all the sensory and social overload and is slowly falling behind academically, because he is generally polite and teachable (with a Herculean effort on the part of the teacher!), he just doesn't qualify. I am more than a little bummed.
If only we hadn't of taught him that it's not OK to punch other kids...
