I fully understand. My son is 36 and has autism. He is nonverbal. He has moved in two years ago with a wonderful couple that are his age. Now they have a daughter, too.Thank you for replying.
Friends are too busy to do anything, not the way society was back before the new millennium. Now that been forced out of Church twice because I have Autism, have no desire to go back. Especially seeing how nasty Pastors are, who think because have a piece of paper to hang on their wall have more insight then attendees (without warning he removed me from Facebook, blocked my number, and took me off the bulletin email plus prayer chain). Nice not burning out and having another day to do stuff, though keep it restful to respect the Sabbath.
The way forward is dealing with what each day brings and try and make the most of it. The past is the past.
Sorry your church was a bad experience. They are not all that way, but they are like any human institution, some good, some bad, all imperfect.
Keep looking for good people. We have friends at the YMCA, where we go to work out. My son’s new chosen family is a bunch of musicians, and they are an interesting bunch.
Yes, see what each day brings and make the most of it. Beautifully said.
