Running With Autism

The rain gave a brief respite and we ran in a very wet yard. Nini said she felt much better, happier and less frustrated, afterwards. She’s had some autistic moments as we call them the last few days, including a short outburst at church which hasn’t happened in a while. Hopefully this morning’s run will help more. She has been trying to express for a week how she’s feeling but hasn’t been able to verbally (just acting out in some ways at home and school) until today. In the middle of the run she said she missed someone who has worked closely with her for the past few years but went on leave unexpectedly and abruptly. And I realized THAT’S what’s going on. I’m glad the run helped a bit and we were able to talk about it while we ran.

Have a blessed day.
