I have saturated myself with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) information in the last week. Amongst the gloom and despair there are cracks of light appearing. I try to stay balanced, somewhere in the middle of optimism and pessimism. Neither seem particularly helpful at present. What only a day ago was devastating now looks more like a challenge. I'm proud of how I am managing to integrate this news about my son. But then, I think I have had buried suspicions confirmed. So shock wasn't hard to process and move on from. I needed these couple of days away from the daily distractions of family. I appreciate this time to be still, reflect and mentally prepare for the road ahead.
