Guilt. Anger. Jealousy. Bitterness. Kish’s father has been inconsistent with visitation. Same problem throughout our marriage – work is always the priority. There’s times when I’m grateful for this, but I’ve never understood how you can put your family last. Today was no different. An early morning call saying he’d be an hour late –… Continue reading Regret
Well, I don’t even believe in coincidence. I’m a bit airy-fairy, and I definitely believe that everything happens for a reason. But you can argue that if you want.

http://autisticnotweird.com/five-ways-to-damage/ This article is so good, I’m going to print multiple copies to hide around the house, car, wherever, and hope to God that my husband actually reads it and puts some thought into this.
