The Weight of Autism

Today, I feel the weight of Autism. And it is crushing me.

Most days I don’t think about autism. My life is my life. I’m a Mom to two happy and healthy little boys. We laugh and struggle through our days just like everyone else. Then there are days when I feel the insane weight autism has put on me. And I struggle to breathe. I feel every emotion around my son’s disability and it’s long term effects and I know that I will be carrying it for the rest of my life. And just like that I hit my bottom.
Today is one of those days.
