Club Spectrum

Doesn't that sound like an awesome place to party?  If that picture isn't over stimulating I dont know what is.  When LP got diagnoned I said something I guess I regret.  I said being part of the Spectrum Club was like joining the Sorority no one wants to be a part of.  I was bitter about it on the inside even though I didn't show it outwardly.  I told myself i didn't want puzzle stickers or key chains, I didn't want to be part of this club.  I wanted to have my friends and that was that, as if ignoring it, it would go away. 

I want to say I was wrong and I love this club.  I don't have my friends, they don't understand.  No one understands therapists in your space all day, no one understands having a child that doesn't respond to discipline, no one understands a child who doesn't communicate, no one understands a child who doesn't know how to make friends, no one understands a child who freaks out over the noises in a public restroom, no one understand spending money on holistic medicines or treatments....no one understand except people in the Spectrum Club.

There are people all over this country, all over the world, that read my blog and are fans of my page.  You are the people I can talk to with out judging, who read my blog posts and can relate.  Thank you for being there, Thank you for being supportive, thank you for your advice and for sharing information.  This is a great club to be part of, and though many of you are hundreds if not thousands of miles away, you are friends.  Thank you for being a friend
