I Tip-toe around my whole life.
I blog realistically about how autism makes a lot of us feel, not how we want people to think we feel.
you Autism parents with sensory children will understand.
I worry when I drop something my phone vibrates even when Face is long asleep. let alone putting on perfume, or heaven forbid attempting to hoover!
I watch my television with subtitles on…..yep subtitles, because im dammed if im going to be able to hear anything.
yet you still know when the hollyoaks theme tune comes on an are the first to come screaming down the stairs.
some days im adamant some fucker s sat outside my house with a dog whistle or something, because ive turned off everything in the house, and im not breathing anymore so why are you playing up????
this morning while Face was banging his head and fists against the computer desk while screaming and the faint smell of poo was emanating throughout the house I realised something.
I HAVE SENSORY ISSUES TOO.
I would like it for you not to be screaming, shouting, banging, jumping, grinding, repeating, poo smearing, etc
because it drives me mad!
darling Face, id do anything for you, but for just one cup of tea today, might you think of being nice and quiet? it would make my day 🙂
