WHICH one has the "normal" diagnosis?

In the world of neurological alphabet soup there are 2 letters that mean "normal" to the rest of the world. They are N.T. They do not mean New Testament nor Nose & Throat. They mean "Neuro-Typical." It means that neurologically the person's brain is in the "typical" category, or as most of us would say "Normal." I am of the belief that normal is a setting on your dryer and has nothing to do with people. Which may explain a lot about me.

I have 2 children. 2 girls. Actually, they both have some "alphabet soup" after their names, but for the most part, one is considered N.T. The other is autistic. Asperger Syndrome, to be specific. High functioning autism. Can you guess which one is the N.T. one?

Which just goes to prove you cannot tell the face of autism, but the face of ADHD is WAY easier to pick out! LOL!

BTW, girls are still in p.j.'s & somewhat embarrassed that I'd post these publicly. They should've thought of that before entering my room. Bwahahahahahaha!

I love your REALness about it all!
If they diagnosed it all when we were young, I wonder what they'd have said about all of us.

Normal = boring. I love them both!HUGS!
