Today I took DS to the local shopping centre and some guy walked straight into DS's path. As if to say I'm not moving out of his way. He gave DS a dirty look too. It gets me so fucking god damn cunting .
I avoid taking him because I fear I would constantly be defending him and arguing. I'm almost insane from isolation so the only contact with others with speech is that shit?
Some people are just cunts, it may not have mattered that your ds has SNs, likelihood is that the man would have behaved the same.
I struggle with taking ds out on my own, for different reasons, and tend to stick to the same places, same cafe, same beach, same shops etc. but last summer I took him on holiday by myself and he was a dream (mostly). It's often just timing, and needing to feel a bit bulletproof, which is hard sometimes/often, especially when life is so bloody exhausting.
Where are you? Perhaps another MNSNer will meet you somewhere?
You are amazing. Much admiration to you. Perhaps a chair might make things easier. He will sense that you are on edge when you are out so will be more anxious. At least if he is in a chair you can relax a bit and interract with him rather than constantly worrying about idiots like the one today. Honk honk
I went through a stage when other people reactions really hurt but I realised how isolated I and DS was becoming. Now I think @@ck it he's as much right to be out and about as everyone else.i do make sure we go to places when it's less busy but that's for his comfort more than anyone else's.hes only young once and I'm going to enjoy doing anything he wants to do whether others think he should be there or not.
