    I love what you said about resentment & gratitude. I have 3 autistic people in my family & those swings of emotion resonate with me. Some days I absolutely hate autism! But then my hubby kids wouldn’t be who they are without it & they are remarkable people who I love with all my being.
    (I’m sure my hubby would say the same about anxiety, *a’hem* 😉)
    We are a family full of neurological, executive function & mental health diagnoses. All of us have at least 1 & most have 2-3 more. It can get pretty intense around here!
    I have had some very resentful times, wishing knew about a diagnosis or 2 before making a certain decision back in the day. But then my life would be completely different & I don’t even want to entertain the thought!
    I am so grateful to have the wonderful, beautiful, infuriating, & exasperating people God has given to me. Our family is full of love & hard things. As much as it drives me crazy sometimes, I wouldn’t change a thing.
