Today I took my beloved Azulito to his paediatrician and received a referral for an autism spectrum disorder assessment.
The palpable judgement from other parents in the room whose kids were capable of sitting and waiting quietly was soul crushing as he struggled through a vast array of “symptoms”.
The wait is 6 to 9 months to even walk in the door.
I love this child. So much.
I haven’t cried like this or felt so shattered in a long time.
This chapter in life is tough. And very lonely.
