The Dreaded Cycle

Oh it’s the dreaded cycle again. My son you were doing so well just yesterday.

Then today you wake up and our nemesis is back.

I hope you know I really dislike you!

You take away my sons smile and give him tears.

You take away his appetite and give him belly aches.

You take away is sleep and give him anxiety.

You take away his health and give him illnesses.

You take away his school/friends and give him inclusion.

You take away is laughter and give him meltdowns.

Sometimes you come and go within a day and other times you stay around for months. And then you bring your friend regression.

If regression had a face I’m sorry but I’d punch it right in it!

Regression, you have taken so much from my son.

We’ve worked so hard for the skills you just stole from him! It’s not fair.

You’re so mysterious. Ever cycle has new symptoms and behaviors.

You’re so unpredictable. Just when we almost have you figured out you go away!

But you’re never ever, ever, going to win! He’s got an army of a team behind him!

My Deegan no matter what we will fight.

When the cycles get too tough WE WILL FIGHT FOR YOU!

Just pick those little feet up baby, Mommy will carry you.

We will make it over, around, under, through this cycle and just when you think you can’t take anymore you will see the sun shining through the storm.

When my son was first diagnosed with autism no one was talking about it. Autism was hidden. I vow to change that.
