another forgotten appointment

may 22 2008

Dealing with autism is a day to day challenge.

Today we were waiting for the oldest to come and do something with the computer of his autistic brother.
He was expected before dinner and said he wanted to eat with us.


We were all very enthousiastic, so we made a nice dinner, with tomato soup and a lot more.

But he didn't turn up.

His ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) must have taken over, because when he was called he didn't even realise why, untill he was told.

In the meantime I was trying to keep my autistic son calm.
Which was quite a job.
He was telling he was forgotten, his brother didn't care and the whole lot.

There are days I feel like an intepreter, trying to make people with strange languages understand each other...and failing.
