by Ryan Hinds
(From the book… I Know You’re In There – Winning Our War Against Autism)
As you have seen in the previous chapters of her book, my mother is a little stubborn. This is not a criticism, but rather a fact that shouldn’t really surprise anyone who has read this book. I’m not bothered by this personality trait. It was because of her tenacity that I got better. Sometimes her pushiness can be a little annoying, but there is no one in the world I love or appreciate more.
It is because of this almost perfect, yet obsessive mother that I live a pretty normal life and I am grateful for that. My mom and I fight sometimes, but at these times it is sort of fun to mess with her. When she wanted to know every detail about my girlfriend, it was quite bothersome. There are just some things you don’t tell your mother. My sister and I decided a long time ago that we love to torment her by not sharing information about anyone special in our lives. Some people call that passive/aggressive behavior. We think of it as entertainment.
