manic monday






You’ve won $100,000 – but have to give it all away.
To which charity or institution would you donate it?

Well, knowing that so many organisations need too much money to have people travel to the site where help is needed, too much money to make people keep their jobs, I doubt if I would hand it over to an organisation or institution.

Most likely I would gather with a few other parents of autistic and autism spectrum disorder children and team up to buy a house so they have a place to stay when they get a bit older, under care and supervision.
There's no place in town or in the direct area where my 15 year old autistic boy can stay.
It's a shame!
The only place is 5 hours travelling from here and that's unacceptable.

What do you think is the most soothing sound?

For many people: the sea.
For me too. And the rain... especially in an old town.

Does time heal all wounds?

No.
It can take away the sharp edges. It can make it possible to laugh and live again.
But the death of my children, my gram and my father will always stay with me.

What a great way to spend the money. I hope someone by proxy gives you money for this.

I also chose an autism-related charity. In the UK, most resources tend to be focused on autistic children. Adults with the condition often have less than satisfactory assistance, so if I really had $100,000 to give away, I'd want it to help autistic adults.

Happy MM!

What a wonderful way to spend the money. It would create such a strong impact that way.

I like how you put the part about wounds and time taking away the sharp edges.

I heard someone very wise say one time that with death, you never get over it. You just learn to deal with it better each day

I think that's true. I'll never "get over" the deaths of my kids, but I've learned to deal with it a little better each day.
