Social groups 2

My Aspie teen is off to his first social meeting soon, full of excitement and hope.
We've worded him up early, giving him time to adjust his thinking and mentally plan his movements around this new event on his calendar.
I'm prepared for an outburst as the date draws closer, perhaps some trepidation at meeting others or even just the fact teen girls will be included (we're still, just, at the "ewww, girl germs" stage).
There'll be a few flutters from his mother but his dad plans on plugging into his iPod while the teens socialise (his father's way of coping with new situations) so I'll be parked at home attempting to watch some murder mystery whodunit on the edge of my seat from waiting to see how it all went.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I'd be happy to talk about our similar NF1 medical or any medical issues-you're not alone. Feels like it sometime huh? Some of us just get full plates!

Thanks so much, Bridgette :)
It does feel very isolating at times and, yeah, full plates for sure!
