Ds awareness day #14

Do you ever feel like you have to tippy-toe around everyone, not wanting to rock the boat?

I have always been a tippy toe-er , and you know what I am tired of it. I always had the mentality of keep the peace, swallow your words and smile.

Sometimes I think people need to be told the truth. I think people need to know that things they say are obnoxious and annoying.

I think having a child with Down syndrome has put daggers in my mouth, and I will shout them at you if I need to. I think that I have become more defensive and protective in the process.

Part of me hates that, part of me likes that.
