Making Friends

Making and keeping friends I am finding harder these days. My time is full with so much administration or meetings. Only last week I spent a glorious 5 hours in an NDIS and medicine review meeting in one day. Sheesh, I really have better things to do.

Friendships are so important. It takes patient, inquisitive, courageous and generous souls to forge and strengthen friendships with any special needs parent.

I salute and appreciate all of our friends. From those I see every few months to those we spend countless messages trying to arrange a friendship date!

If you are a friend of a special needs parent, know we love you immensely. You keep us grounded, we love that you care enough about us to go on this really crappy journey at times. But know we wish we could give so much more.
