Son Getting Married

My oldest son's wedding will take place on Sept. 23. The celebration has so much meaning, anxiety, and hope for me. He has medical issues including autism spectrum disorder, depression and anxiety, occasional psychotic breaks when younger ... bright enough to be selected for gifted schools and programs, to get professional degrees, but always struggling to connect socially ... still so much struggle to get along in the 'regular world' ... he was a member of the cellar for a time ... and he is marrying a good-hearted, charming, loving, family-oriented young woman who considers him, of all the fish in the sea, HER fish ...

Very blessed.

I am always very happy to hear of someone who struggles with mental health issues, especially autism spectrum and trouble connecting socially, being able to find love and find someone whom will be on their side. A safe person to connect with. It warms my heart, honestly. Wishing all the best for your people.

First-world problems, although I can't minimize them because I am not the one affected - but my other autistic son's tux does not fit! Clothing too tight is a disaster for him. The tux arrived late (tuxes were arranged for online, with delivery rather than pickup) and I have a bad feeling about our chance of getting the proper size in time. Hmm. Have to think outside the box on this one. Tomorrow we'll see what can be done.

Thank you for all the good wishes!
