Muffler

I want to write all the positives.  The negatives drag me down.  Her privacy muffles my voice.  Her needs tighten like a fist around my heart.  The intensity of every waking moment takes all my energy.

Though she doesn't have an autism spectrum disorder like her brother does, her issues are just as pervasive.  Like him, there is no area of her life unaffected...

We continue to live moment by moment, buoyed by the positives, drowning in the negatives.
