Presley was officially diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder this last week. I was pretty sure it was coming, but it has felt like a big blow and really threw me last week. Hence the lack of posts.
I think with our "undiagnosed" diagnosis I felt like we might be able to get out of ASD, or maybe I was just crazy and I would wake up one morning and everything would be "normal," or something. But, it is official now, and I am trying to figure out what that means for me, my family, my work, and everything else. For Presley I don't feel like it changes much: the behaviors are still there and we are dealing with each one like we were before having an official diagnosis. For me, I feel like it changes how I feel about the whole situation.
Thanks for visiting me and sharing in my life story.
