People often praises me for appearing so positive about my daughter’s condition.
To these people, I’d like to say:
> Every Human Being who faces hardship in life will automatically try to handle the situation to the best of their capability. This is Human nature, isn’t it?
> Having a child with Special needs didn’t transform me into a Super mum or a Super Hero. Far from that… Most of the time, I am feeling weak and vulnerable.
> I have not accepted Autism but I acknowledged its presence and its impact in our lives.
> Some days, I am “tolerant” and some days, I lack patience (my number one weakness!). On these misty days, I feel like a complete failure. I am the spoilt child in front of my daughter who is demonstrating so much altruism and compassion.( Altruism and compassion, features you “presumably” hardly find in people with Autism…)
> I am the mother, I am the Neurotypical but at the end of the day, I am learning a big deal of wisdom from this child.
