family and special needs

you know one of the big things about having a family is that they care about you and that they love you and want the best for you but at the same time it can lead to support system Fatigue. and as you get older that fatigue can become a bigger and bigger problem and that is something that i’m currently going threw right now with my family is everyone wants to help all in there own ways but no one will listen to me and my wants. they just see a need for help and want to fix it as soon as possible or in there own ways with out asking me. this is one of the meany reasons i chose the image header that i did because in a special needs family like mine we share the downs and the ups we celebrate the little things in life even if it means giving up something to gain something. to me i see that my family wants to help me so much and i appreciate that but at the same time it gets tiring and it gets too much for me at times it is a lot like when i’m in a crowded area and there are a lot of people around it gets to be to much for me sometimes and i have to remove my self from the situation. and my family knows that about me. see my family loves me unconditional and they will always love me no matter what i have one family member that sees me still as a child and treats me that way and sometimes its refreshing to have something new like that enter my day to day life and then on the other hand i have someone that expects a lot from me and wants to see me succeed and do grate things with my life. and i have to navigate these situations the best i know how to. and i’m still learning people skills also so its still a lot of work to do and sometimes its hard but hay you do what you got to do in life to get by
