April is Autism Awareness Month so of course being an active advocate I am glad that awareness and acceptance are making their rounds. I hate the fact that April is also prime time for every controversial issue in the autism community to be argued about.(Not pointing any fingers here, I too am guilty of this. Most of these people argue because they’re passionate about their loved ones. I can relate to that, I just can’t participate anymore) I am to the point where I feel guarded about some of my opinions, particularly in April. I used to be an open book but it is unbelievably exhausting to argue with people everyday and have to be on the defensive 24/7. I can’t handle all of that bad energy. It doesn’t make me productive, it makes me a depressed and people can sense it. I have decided that this year, rather then getting sucked into it all I am just staying in my little bubble in Rockin Mom Family land! I spread awareness, acceptance, and action everyday so April is really just another month. It’s Autism awareness year up in here!
