Well my DS(autistic /bi-polar) went off with his aide today. He seemed excited which made me glad for him that he was able to experience a positive emotion today. He chose , The Lone Ranger & Pizza Hut after. When he told me he wanted to see the Lone Ranger I instantly started Duddlunt, duddalunt , duddlelunt da da da lunt da da daduddle dunt ! As I rode my invisible Silver around the kitchen !
He yelled , NO , Ma ! you can't do that !
Okay , maybe it's not the autism with this one. What would I have done in my 20's if my mother started doing that ?
Anyway, off he went. I would LOVE to go on a bike ride or a hike in the forest, but he's still unstable & I can't go far in case his aide needs my help. So I was just gonna sit around here. No other choice, right. I thought, wrong! Make the best of the situation you are given. it's still a blessing of time for him & you so don't take it for granted.
I went to the city where I can park my car within 5 minutes walking distance in any direction. Found a couple little treasure spots that have some of Gods natural wonders left. Got to breath in some fresh air, take in some beauty & read from a book on a bench overlooking the lake.
