And I shouldn't be. I have just returned home from a wonderful dinner out with the girls. Am off to the Qld bloggers meet tomorrow. And we are all on the mend.
But sad I am. Why? Because I have had enough. I try and advocate or advise others on this SN journey where I can help. Most days I will go onto boards and into threads to attempt to inform and educate. In real life I talk to lots of people about our ASD rollercoaster, and have attempted to help others just starting out.
I know the written word can be misconstrued and misunderstood. I know tone and intent can be missed. But I am tired and sick of the attitude of "Us" versus "Them". Of the special needs world being second rate or not even considered human. Of anger and bitterness, theirs and mine.
So enough. At this point I think I am done talking/writing/advocating/advising. I have tried and failed, no matter what I say someone will take my words and twist them into their world. Or it may be that I am so cocooned in this world that things I think are clear are blurred and vague.
And so it is with sadness that I walk away. To help is my nature but when my intent is slammed back tortured beyond recognition... Done, no more.
