I have many friends, but one person who has helped me a lot is my friend Crystal. Crystal has experience with ADD and Autism. Her knowledge and experience along with a non-judgemental attitude has helped me with a lot of what we have had to go through with Dakota.
Crystal has helped me realize that medication wasn't as bad as everyone else around me made it out to be. We had tried everything else and I always felt like it was a last resort. Crystal helped me see that whether we chose medication or not, it wasn't as big of a deal as we had originally thought.
She has also made me realize that it isn't selfish to take some me time, and you shouldn't feel guilty about it. Also you have to do what is best for you and your family, and other peoples judgements don't matter. I am so thankful for such a great friend.
