Hello Russ. Here I am feeling sorry for myself that I had to carry my car's battery home because it "died" of cold. Can't really picture myself handling what you're handling right now, although I feel that it's important to be closer to people. It's not always easy to be "normal" and healthy in this world, being young is also not always an advantage, so it's hard to tell what we can expect from someone who has an extra challenge. I believe that what you're doing is perhaps more about here and now, rather than about expectations.
I notice that even while doing small things it's sometimes crucial that there would be someone around there for you, although sometimes it's easier to do everything solely, still, like batteries, we also need recharging.
Well, easier said than done. Nevertheless, thank you for sharing it. Even if it doesn't get a lot of comments, it influences more people than it seems.
