    I love this. This is my life with my 10 year old son. So sad to watch that snake of anxiety enter his mind. Thank you for your gift of writing!

    Carrie, you ARE an expert – an expert at making the rest of us feel “normal” even though we have a few “life sucks” days.

    Interesting article in today’s Boston Globe on Disney’s animation and autism.

    Ah-ha! A happy ending after all…of a sort. Anxiety is a beast we battle with daily, and every day, new strategies to combat it come to light. And, I love your daughter for giving you that perfect ending to an “expert” interview! 🙂
