SPED (Special Education), Autism, Dyslexia, and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) awareness.
Both Bella and I have 22q both of us have ADHD there is very limited resources and help because we are not on spectrum.
My goal for the new year is to bring more awareness in the new year of what life is like with having to attend weekly therapy sessions and the struggle of keeping up with being mainstream with an IEP in the 5th grade in public school.
Organization is a challenge with thoughts and things
Having it as an adult is exhausting the sticky notes and alarms on my phone for reminders.
The distractions the overwhelm feeling over multiple steps.
Trying to remember to maintain friendships while raising a child with the same issues. Making time for romance and quality time with spouse comes natal and spontaneous for those with out adhd.
For people like myself these things have to be plan out.
Routines structures help so does monthly tune ups with my own therapist so I don't relapse.
10 years and going strong.
Weekly recovery group at church had reminded me of how far along our family has grown.
It not easy it got easier because I didn't sulk and whine about it I buckled up buttercup and handled myself and my issues.
My mini me watching me was my motivator
The part of my book I am writing is of my recovery the journey and the personal first hand experiences the struggle of the others online I took a long social media break and time away from blogging. With the support of the recovery group I am inspired to keep writing. I have a different perspective my truth is my journey.
I am no longer others target. I've learn to let toxic people go.
I am thankful for the support of friends and loyal readers.
My blog since 2014 had grown internationally and accomplish so much from being a parent advocate to a champion of hope.
I look forward to what the new year is going to bring
This is the week of SPED (Special Education), Autism, Dyslexia, and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) awareness. For all the children who struggle every day to succeed in a world that does not recognize their gifts and talents, and for those who are walking beside them, please let this be a gentle reminder to be kind and accepting of ALL people. Recognize that the "playing field" is not always a level surface. Children who learn differently are not weird. They are merely gifted in ways that our society does not value. Yet they want what everyone else wants: To be accepted.
If you choose, please copy and paste this in honor of all children who are deemed "different". Our world would be far less beautiful without them.
