  1. I came across your blog today. My 9 y.o. son has PDD-NOS and for many reasons I have also decided to homeschool him. A few days ago a friend of mine sent me a pin of a blog by a woman with Aspergers. It was uncanny how I identified with everything she was saying. For the first time I had the notion that maybe I had aspergers. I’ve been reading everything I can about women with aspergers and taking online tests. I have very little doubt now and wonder if it’s worth getting diagnosed.

  2. Thank you Erin for your blog! I’m a mom of a 4.5 year old daughter with Asperger’s type Autism. I laughed & cried & feel the joy & pain. My daughter is the light of my life & I wouldn’t change a thing. It’s a damn tough job though. I resonate with your faith. I’ve gotten so much intuitive guidance through prayer that’s helped me navigate this crazy adventure of parenting only to find out through later validation that I’m doing exactly what is best for my daughter. I am trying to figure out how to instill self love in her. She gets so uncontrollably angry she hurts herself at times. How do I help my kid see how amazing she is? It’s something I’m still trying to figure out. Thank you for sharing your stories. Much love! We are all together in this.

    • By never stopping telling her how amazing she is. Surround her with people that tell her. Shield her from too much negativity in the early years and then slowly expose her more, after she’s developed some confidence. Life is hard. It’s even harder for the mentally ill. Confidence is necessary.
