Hi Barry! Welcome our very supportive and encouraging Autism, Aspergers, Sensory, Oh My! team! I started this team several years ago when 2 of my sons were dx'd on the spectrum with Aspergers. I had to learn to take care of myself all the time (not just when I felt I had the time) or I wouldn't be at my best to care for my kids. My daughters have several medical issues as well, one with ADHD and sensory issues along with OCD and my other daughter (the youngest) who has EoE ( which means she has allergic reactions a little different that your sons) and she has brain processing issues. All that said, I guess what I'm saying is that I understand what you are going through. It is a lot! I feel very blessed to have my kids, my husband and love them all as they are. I admire my kids strength and energy in spite of their challenges. Our team is wonderful for sharing ups and downs and living a healthy lifestyle and the never ending journey! If there are specific ways we can help, please let us know. Again, Welcome to the team! Cathy (team leader) 1551 days ago
So glad to hear you register for the full at Disney. We haven't registered for anything right now. If we get some goodies and price breaks in November we may do it....not sure what I will do.
It is so tough to start over again, but you can do it. Keep up the walking for a while then start with Couch to 5K...I am sure you will do fine - just don't push the pace...remember you are starting over from a major back injury - all bets are off...New PRs begin AI (After Injury).
I am drastically cutting back on long distances this next season.I will only do a total of 4-5 long distances...I will fill in with shorter distances for sure. Our first race will be Rock n Roll Savannah. After that who knows.
