Just checked my stats and got such a shock that The Life of Reilly is the tiniest smidge off 50,ooo views. This makes me so happy. It’s hard sometimes to bare your soul and write some of your fears and feelings for the world to see. It is cathartic for me. Sometimes you got to write it because if you shout it quite frankly your going to make a scene and we do enough of that already.
I remember being absolutely terrified to press publish on the posts
Would people think I am a shitty parent because of those posts? I am jealous was shared so many times on social media and I only saw one mother who wasn’t happy about it. I don’t remember where the comment even is now but it was along the lines of she wants to think herself lucky she has a child blah blah blah. NOBODY needs to tell me this. I am truly aware that others have it so much worse than me but the purpose of the blog is to inform people of our autism, the one we live and breathe.
I hope that I have raised an eyebrow or two with the blogs to date and I hope it has made people less judgmental of others. Public acceptance that people are different is the answer. Mind sets need to be changed children need to be educated not just in schools but at home too (not just with autism, pick a topic it still fits). Different is ok.
I’ve been asked to make more videos, christ on a bike i’ve also been asked to write a book. What I would like to know is what do you like about The Life of Reilly? What would you like to see more or less of? Let me know x
