Grief and trauma is VERY real for mothers of children with autism.
In many ways, we have a lot in common with war veterans.
Loss, grief, near death experiences, sleepless nights, violence, biting, screaming, danger and fear is driving us to the point of exhaustion and melt down.
I remember having a COMPLETE meltdown the first time I had to talk about my son’s recovery in public. That’s when I knew that I had some grief and PTSD to deal with.
Did you know that there are two ways of dealing with grief and trauma?
One will make you GROW from the experience, the other will destroy your life.
