When I get scared, I can easily lose control... actually I can lose control any time at all. Control of my brain and control of my body. It is especially scary when this happens in the car and we are driving.
I have to talk about it right then to process, think and understand what is scaring me.
It can make me upset if I am having a big behavior and someone says, "Stop it, you are being dangerous!" At that point, I cannot help it an that will make it worse.
We usually pull over to talk. Being on the side of the road or a highway puts us in a dangerous position.
Our County, and all counties, need Intensive Family Support Services that are mobile and come to where I am to help me to calm down. The Support Services will act much like police, but they are specially trained and have new technology.
All of my friends with disabilities need this too.
For now, stopping the car to talk helps and mommy can calm me down, but I want someone with me 24/7 to help me.
When I am president of all people with disabilities, I will help everyone in this way.
