Have you ever driven down the highway on your way to a destination and accidentally took the wrong exit? So you flip around to get back on the highway, but you can't find the right road? Our journey on this path of autism and ADHD with a side of dysgraphia has been something like that. One minute, everything is (mostly) normal and the next, you have no idea where to go or who you need to talk to... you just know you really just want to be back on the highway driving down the happy little road ...
