The Worry That Special Needs Parents Carry

Since Cooper was born I’ve struggled to get back to my ‘normal.’ I remember the woman I once was and yet the chaos of being a special needs parent prevents me from getting back to her. I’ve tried many times and failed. And what the outside world doesn’t understand is that even when I take a break from Autism the worry is always there. I can fake my way through girls night and date night but Autism is always right under the surface. There is no break from the worry about my son’s future. And it’s something I will carry until the day I die.
