On May 28th, my sister, Edna, turned 31.
Her mental age is about three years old. She loves Winnie the Pooh, Beauty & the Beast, and Sesame Street. Even though the below picture is unconvincing.
Edna and “Cookie.” I think she was trying to play it cool.
My name is…
I am in a similar situation myself. My son has a form of epilepsy called Doose Syndrome. My son is 6, but has a mental age of a 1 year old. He is also ambulatory but refuses to walk at times. I carry him up and down the stairs too. He currently weighs 42 lbs so it’s not as difficult, but will get harder as he grows older/bigger. He is also still in diapers not likely going to be potty trained anytime soon. Texas ranks at number 50 for disability services! Texas needs to do better. The waiting lists for disability services in Texas can be up to 10 years.
