Decisions

Decisions, decisions, decisions.  Every day we make them.  Some are easy and some not so much.

Add mayo to the hoagie or oil and vinegar or no hoagie but a salad instead?  Depending in the time of month, that one is easy.

Continue his services as they are now or take away TSS and continue only with a BSC or end both?   He would love that but what about new behaviors and the summer time and going places?

It is so easy to over think decisions to the point where they can cause your stomach to churn and give you a headache.

Being a parent of an autistic child, I find decisions are more difficult for me to make and there are so many more of them!  It seems like his decisions are bigger, more grand with much more at stake.  What if I make the wrong decision for him, would it set him back for months or even years?  He has been receiving services for many years now and part of me is ready to let some of them go yet the other part is thinking we may need them in the future.  And it's not like you can get them back easy.  It could take months or a year until we get them back or the state can flat out say no to all services.

Managing the page has taught me many things but the main one is others agonize about decisions also.  My advice to them is always go with your gut.  My gut is unclear now.  A mom joked about where is the manual when you have a child?  We should all get a manual that when decisions have to be made, turn to the specific date and read what you are suppose to do.  I didn't get my copy.  Ha ha.

I will take the leap of faith and make a decision soon.  When he is older, I would love for him to be able to let me know what he wants but for now, I have to be the adult and decide for him.  Only hope I make a good choice.

Yep.  Another decision that makes me want to scream!!
