An autism parent fell in a hole

Family member : what hole?
Boss : oh dear you can have the day off
Doctor : can you keep a diary about your experiences in the hole
CAMHS : We'll assess the size of the hole ..... In about 18 months time
Local Authority : we don't have enough money for a ladder
Charity : fill out these forms to apply for a ladder

Other autism parent :
I am getting in there with you
I have been here before
I know how to get out
and I won't let you do it alone

It is very true, and that is how ASDf works  :)  (or how it used to work, before people deserted here for Facebook.  :(  )

^^^  I agree, Caci.  I won't post private stuff about DD on FaceBook.

I've noticed it's started to get really quiet on hear, I don't post on facebook myself either, is that where everyone has gone?

That just sums it all up.


I am very wary of Facebook and never put anything personal on it either.


That is what was so good here. There is so much good advice, but mostly it's contact with other people who might have had similar experiences. Bizarrely, I was at an Autism event for work, and ended up sitting in a huge room of people next to the only other person who was also a parent! We definitely have a different perspective.
