The Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side...
I have "the grass is always greener on the other side" syndrome. In my mind I'm ALWAYS comparing Kyle to other ASD kids saying to myself "why can't he be more like ___?"
The wife doesn't have this syndrome. In fact we'll be at an event with multiple disabilities and we'll see a mom getting the ramp down in the minivan to wheel her severely PHYSICALLY disabled kid into the event and my wife will say "see we could have it that rough, be thankful for what we have". But wouldn't you know it my brain goes to "yeah but I'll bet that kid can talk or at the very least communicate his wants and needs. He might even hold down a job, or go to college..."
Damn this brain of mine!!
Anybody else have "the grass is always greener on the other side syndrome?"
