Did you give up your hopes and dreams to become a caregiver to your autistic child? Life with autism is different, not less. That applies to everyone in the family, including you!
As a single mom to a 7-year-old boy with severe, nonverbal autism, I know how overwhelming it can be. You’re suffering from burnout, depression, excessive worry and maybe even PTSD.
Worst of all, nobody understands how you feel or knows how to support you. And you’re too busy and exhausted to teach them.
I’ve been there! I know how it feels to be completely isolated and rely on prescription drugs, alcohol or worse so you can just barely make through the day.
One morning, as I poured myself a screwdriver for breakfast - again - I realized I had hit rock bottom and something had to give. Little by little, I discovered ways to make caregiving for my son easier and more effective ... and then I went to work getting my shit back together.
My son is still severely autistic and some nights I still fall exhausted into bed. But my life is different now. I’m happy, fulfilled and I love my life!
I’ve made it my mission to help other autism parents feel the same. That’s why I’ve created The Cabana: a supportive community for autism parents who want more out of life than the grind of being a caregiver.
Here’s what’s waiting for you inside:
