This story is a-typical of life living with someone on the autism spectrum. My son is 24yo. He is a real innocent. I love him and get really annoyed with him with equal intensity!!
I love telling this story, it makes me smile.
Friday night I shared with Nick that I had written a letter of complaint about bullying he knew I had lived through at work for the last couple of years – it was a real cleanse for me, and I wanted to share it with Nick. I raced into the supermarket whilst he sat in the car and read the 3 pages.
When I got back to the car I was waiting for some sympathy, or anything really – nope, nada! I then asked him what he thought… His response was “Mum that was such a boring story, you know I like stories about dragons and stuff”…. God I love him xoxoxoxo
