Dear Fellow Mum on the Autism Journey… life is definitely not all easy though. I miss being able going to the park while the kids play and enjoy a coffee. He is a runner and my eyes at all times while we are out and about must be on him. I miss that at the age of 4.5 yrs he has still not called me Mum. I miss being able to go out for dinner and not be on edge the whole time, sitting still is not his strong point.
