Attempt at Healthy Acceptance
When we first got her tentative diagnosis, I bought both my daugher and myself ASAN-supporting Neurodiversity t-shirts. When I picked her up today, I told her about her Regency Center diagnosis. She got out her Neurodiversity t-shirt, and then brought me mine. We spent some time bouncing around the living room in our shirts, chanting "We are not a puzzle! We are not broken! We are autistic!"
It was so cool.
So cool! Thanks for sharing, and what an awesome chant, "We are not a puzzle! We are not broken! We are autistic!"
Wish there was a 'like' button!
I agree, PlanetJess!
As my friend Ibby would say, Arienea, what you shared is "made of win." :)
Not to get off topic, but in lieu of PlantJess' "like button" comment, we are actually getting a "like button" installed here at AWN. Our Web Developer is working on it as we speak. In fact, I got an email update today.
