As a family we learned to put ourselves forward
Each one of us has some reasonable excuse that we do not want to put ourselves forward with.
Before 1991 my own life experiences involved talipes as well as congenial dislocating hips. Okay, so I had a little trouble crawling and walking for a few years. Probably due to the big plaster casts fitted with the bar. Personally I cannot think of another child who was swang upside down as often as I was. There was that bar between my feet. And my
neighbors had big families that dwarfed my mother’s six brothers and sisters.
Turns out I was also born with High Functioning Autism. Not a problem as every other person in the family had some trace of it so according to us we were all normal! We just learned different and to learn it meant applying the lessons in a different form work. One that society today is finally catching up on in their methods of teaching.
To put ourselves forward as the real world existed.
Yes the real world, and our world, had to be learned to be straddled.
Now think about a person who is in the same predicament as myself. Add to this a complete relearning situation that was needed to be overcome. Yes after gravel truck imploded into the van I was driving what happened but a complete clock out and lock down of thirty-one years of memories. Officially this is Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.
All I know is that while that was in charge of my brain there was no need to place myself in the path of official relearning through educational institutions. And yet I did. The growing family meant that the need to put ourselves forward meant to lead by example.
