Hello! I am excited and honored to be sharing my son's and my family's journey with Autism with you. Adam's journey to his diagnosis has been long and complicated. I spent over 5 years trying to convince his doctors that he has Autism. His diagnosis continues to evolve. Autism is funny. Autism can suck. One thing is certian. I can't change it. I decided a long time ago that I can look at my glass half empty or I can look at it half full. My glass is definitely full. Adam has taught all of us more than I could ever thought possible. Calling myself a writer was something that I never intended. My writing started by sharing excerpts of our life with my friends on Facebook. I quickly learned that although sharing Adam's stories was helping others, it was very therapeutic for me. I have a Master's degree in Exercise Physiology. I work as an Exercise Physiologist in Cardiopulmonary Rehab. I love my job. I love helping my patients return to living and loving their lives after they have been diagnosed with cardiac or pulmonary disease. I love talking to them and hearing their stories. I have learned so much from my patients. I truly believe in my heart that we are all here to share our stories for you honestly never know when your words will help someone. I'm thrilled to be here as a contributing writer on Master Stories. In addition, I contribute to The Mighty and Yahoo Parenting. I hope that you enjoy reading about Adam's and our family's journey with Autism. You can also follow me on my website talesfromthebutt.com or like my page on Facebook - Tales From the Butt - Our Family's Journey With Autism. I'd love to connect with you! Thank you for allowing me to share my story!
