TOPIC: VIDEO CONFERENCE: Surviving the Loneliness
WHEN: Thursday, November 11th, 12 pm PST
There is something ineffable about the loneliness we feel when in a relationship with an ASD loved one. Even our ASD children can contribute to this feeling. Even though we know that we love them; even though we know they love us, or so they say; there is this deep, profound loneliness nevertheless.
To be perfectly honest with you, I still feel lonely on a daily basis. I know it’s not reasonable since I have such abundance in my life. Nevertheless, spending decades of my life with those unable to acknowledge me, understand me, or connect with me, has left me longing for the sense that I am loved and belong. My head tells me I am wrong about my loneliness, but my heart tells me differently.
The purpose of this video conference is to help you identify the source of this loneliness and how to combat it. One powerful way to combat loneliness is to participate in our conference call and share our experiences. Do you know anyone else who gets it?
