Word of the Day: Survival

Survival is the word of the day. It is what I am best at no matter how many times I fall completely apart when I feel as if there is no where to run for safety. Sit back and we'll discuss surviving in the modern world on your own.

Webster's defines survival as : the state or fact of continuing to live or exist especially in spite of difficult conditions 

That's the definition we are going with for the purpose of this post. That is what we are doing. We are surviving as we overcome the difficult conditions that we were once in. Some days we are still in a difficult situation. 

We are no longer in danger but we are alone. The ones that claimed to love us practically deserted us when got here and continually proven to be unreliable. The schools however are just what my little girl needs so we manage on our own.

We utilize transportation services for appointments. We rely on delivery and walking to the store to get the things we need in our home. We pay the bills on time each and every month. 

We are alone, but we are proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that we can take care of ourselves without asking anyone for anything. We have found asking for help to be an exercise in futility since we came here. 

Until next time I will be continuing to teach my autistic angel the art of surviving in hopes that she will one day be able to do it on her own.

The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.
