Yesterday, I put my fragile X carrier anxiety on full display for you1 and once again I’m reminded why my life has been 100,000,000,000 times better since I’ve become involved in the fragile X community. If you didn’t read the comments, you should go back and do that.
To sum up…this was about my fear, not Caleb’s. I should prepare him in advance with a social story (a handy copy of one to modify was e-mailed to me even), I should invite some of his friends, I should not let this hold me back, I have to keep trying, someone volunteered to go with us and I was reminded that even a small victory is still a victory.
Oh, also, I was provided with my newest favorite mantra…
“Turn your fear into fierce! <3“
How awesome is that?? Thanks Angie!
This is exactly why so many of us refer to the fragile X community as “the coolest club no one wants to join” or comments that if it had to be something, that we are lucky it was fragile X. I cannot think of any community that is as close and as supportive as this one.
I love you all! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We’re totally going for it. I do have to say I’m pretty shocked though that no one suggested alcohol or Xanax for me beforehand 😉
- I hope it was more fun for you than it was for me! [↩]
