Why I (Sometimes) Hate Autism

poem about motherhood

It was a massive honour to be asked to guest blog for the amazing AutismAwareness.com. They do wonderful work in not only raising awareness of autism, but supporting parents through their journeys. They reach millions of people every month who discuss, learn and explore topics of interest to special needs families.

Here’s a snippet of my piece 

“Usually I’m as good at masking my sadness as Polly is at masking her high-functioning autism. Lately though, I’m being asked a lot if I’m okay.

Just to be explicit, I am not okay.”
