Hi, i'm Terri, I have a Mild form of Autism. I'm a full time mum to 3 children, 2 girls and 1 boy. I was 3 years old when I was diagnosed. I still feel alone sometimes and i'm still not very good at a social interaction but im, better. I'm the women I am because of my mum, if it wasn't for her I probably wouldn't be married or have children. I'm lucky to have a mum who was willing to push to be sure I have this life I have. When diagnosed at the George Elliot they stated to my mum that my Autism was more towards the higher level and I may need specialist care later on, at the time of diagnosis. Mum fought to keep me in mainstream School, my one to one special needs helped and mum pushing me has allowed me to live the life I have. Are there any other Autistic mums out there??
