A day in the life of a single mom raising a teenager and a child with autism. I believe that it's not what we receive, but what we give away that defines us. I want to give away all that I have learned and experienced in hopes that it will help families raising a child with autism or any disability. This is my candid journal where I open up my world and share my joys, knowledge, lessons, disappointments, challenges, frustrations, fears and successes - one day at a time.

Nicky began taking Depakote when he was four years old. Seems this medication, which I knew affected his behaviors, was masking manic behaviors we never knew existed, until now. After four weeks of no sleep my kiddo lives in a place beyond recognition, and I'm in a place I didn't expect to revisit. We've tried Abilify and nothing, so we're going back on Depakote. Please something work. I'm going to try WFGF again. Maybe that will help.
