Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and being an "Adult Baby"...#515

Rate this Entry
It is half past 11:00 PM on a Friday and I am still very wide-awake.
As usual, I watched TV online.
Old Cop Shows
Japanese Anime
BBC Documentaries
Tomorrow will be a House Chore Day.
My weekly vacuuming of my bedroom and washing my clothes.
I have performed some quiet pretend play with Howard Hug, my special Teddy Bear Friend.
Today my younger brother was my taxi to go out to purchase more adult diapers and necessary groceries.
Sigh...
As a physically and developmentally disabled senior citizen, I am coming down to the end of my fiscal month.
I am lucky in that I can handle my own finances.
So many Autistic adults are unable to perform this task of being independent and living in the community and who require assistance with this.
I also manage my own medical care living out in the community here in Derry, NH.
I am an Adult.
But I am also a "dependent" Little/Adult Baby.
My younger brother looks after me.
I really am rather child-like in real life.
I defer to my younger brother when we are together away from home in social situations due to my inability to cognitively read non-verbal social gestures and facial expressions.

    You are lucky to be able to manage your own money instead of someone else buying stuff for you. But they are those who can't do washing and find it hard with social skills.
