“But People Don’t Know What To Say…” By: Kate Myers

My son & I are a spectacle.
Jolting movements

My son has Autism – PDD/NOS & ADHD & Anxiety Disorder & Seizure Disorder.

My son is 12.5

I have no formal diagnosis – I am perpetually exhausted & lonely & sad & alone & waiting for 5 pm to take my daily .25 Xanax.

I am 50.5

No one speaks to us.
There are few random encounters.

People stare or look past us or look away from us as if we are nothing. And we are the exact opposite of nothing – We are SOMETHING!
